Abridean Announces Support for Microsoft Exchange 2007
Halifax, NS, March 26th, 2007 - abridean Inc., leaders in the development of user provisioning software for providers of hosted services, today released ProvisorSP™ for Microsoft Exchange 2007. ProvisorSP™ enables organizations and service providers to simply and securely manage access to Exchange 2007, along with other electronic messaging and collaboration applications such as SharePoint and RIM in both shared/hosted and standalone enterprise deployments.
Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, the next major release following Exchange 2003, boosts information worker productivity through ubiquitous access to business-critical messaging and calendaring information, as well as enhancements in security, manageability, availability, and reliability to help further drive down costs.
ProvisorSP is deployed by some of the world’s top hosted Microsoft Exchange service providers, and is used to manage over 150,000 accounts.
"Modifying ProvisorSP™ to use the new PowerShell interface in Exchange 2007 was a significant project for us." said Peter Bidgood, abridean’s product manager for ProvisorSP™. "As with Exchange 2003, we are pleased to have worked closely with Microsoft and to be one of the first to provide corporate and service provider clients with an Exchange 2007 user provisioning solution.”
ProvisorSP’s secure but easy to use delegation process allows Service Providers and corporate data centers to provide defined administrative capabilities to specific users. Delegated administration reduces costs at the help desk level and improves response times by empowering front line managers.
ProvisorSP™ can also be fully automated using definable rules. Active Directory user accounts and Exchange mailboxes are created, modified and removed based on changes in an authoritative data source such as a corporate directory.
A number of licensing options are available for ProvisorSP™, including outright purchase or a monthly Software as a Service (SaaS) basis.
