Ensim Launches BackupAgent Connector for Ensim Unify Service Provider Edition

Automatic and Fast Provisioning of BackupAgent for Service Providers Using Ensim Unify Service Provider Edition

SANTA CLARA, CA and AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS--(Marketwire - December 16, 2009) - Ensim Corporation, the leading provider of change management, user provisioning and access control software, today announced that it has integrated BackupAgent into its Ensim Unify Service Provider product. Service providers who use Ensim Unify Service Provider can now easily roll out online backup services using BackupAgent and seamlessly provision those services. This significantly shortens time-to-market and increases profit margins, guaranteeing a quick return-on-investment. One of the launching customers of this newly released connector is Outsourcery, formerly Genesis Communications, UK's leading provider of unified communications and hosted IT solutions for SMEs.

Ensim Unify Service Provider Edition is a single, centralized software application that simplifies the day-to-day burden of activating, configuring and managing a service provider's unified communications and collaboration infrastructure. Ensim Unify Service Provider was co-developed with Microsoft, enabling service providers to centrally create, control, and deliver hosted IP and application services.

BackupAgent provides scalable and easy-to-deploy online backup software for service providers. The solution is fully integrated with Microsoft's Hosted Messaging & Collaboration (HMC) platform and Active Directory. The client software is available for both the consumer and SMB and can back up desktops, laptops and servers, including Microsoft Exchange and SQL backups.

Scott Young, vice president of marketing and product management at Ensim Corporation, says: "We are delighted to release the BackupAgent Connector for Ensim Unify Service Provider Edition. BackupAgent can be easily integrated, resulting in smooth operations in terms of provisioning for service providers. BackupAgent allows service providers to create additional revenue streams with more differentiation."

Roland Sars, director of sales and marketing of BackupAgent, says: "The Connector was developed due to popular demand by service providers using Ensim Unify. BackupAgent's tight integration with Active Directory allows the service provider to have a single sign-on for users that want to use BackupAgent in combination with other products."

Mark Seemann, product strategy & development director of Outsourcery, says: "Outsourcery can provision BackupAgent subscriptions using Ensim Unify Service Provider as a central provisioning platform. Ensim Unify Service Provider also allows BackupAgent to be easily sold through a reseller or distribution channel."
