Intel Chooses Ensim Unify Enterprise for Its AppUp Small Business Service

May 24th, 2011

We are really pleased to announce that Ensim Unify Enterprise has been chosen by Intel® to provide user provisioning and application management software for the Intel AppUp(sm) Small Business Service - previously known as Hybrid Cloud.

The AppUp Small Business Service product is built atop Windows Server 2008 and Windows Small Business Server 2008, where Ensim Unify provides automated, role-based user provisioning and application management services for Windows Server (Active Directory), SharePoint, and Microsoft Exchange, as well as advanced group management capabilities for both security groups and Exchange distribution lists.

Its great technology and it can be a real life saver for small businesses that want to reap the cost and efficiency benefits of cloud computing but keep the server and data securely on site. The concept is actually pretty simple: you purchase a system and get a locally hosted server and software on a pay-as-you-go (monthly subscription) basis, allowing smaller businesses to pay per user. That way, you only pay for the users you actually have. No more guessing at the capacity you might need in the future and always ending up with either too much or too little.

At the same time, managed service providers (MSP) could potentially offer hundreds of these systems on a very cost effective basis to its smaller customers with the Ensim Unify control panel managing these systems individually and in aggregate. These MSP’s will find the combination of Intel technology with Ensim Unify’s provisioning and management capabilities pre-installed offers significant advantages that reduce overhead, improve ROI, and increase customer retention and satisfaction.

Audit Manager Scores High Marks in Windows IT Pro Product Review

May 19th, 2011

We are pleased to announce that we  received a 4.5 out of 5 rating for our Audit Manager product in a recent evaluation performed by Windows IT Pro® magazine. You can learn more about Audit Manager by clicking here - but essentially Audit Manager gives IT administrators an auditing solution specifically designed to work with Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2. The goal is to make it simple to discover, analyze, and report any changes made to the Active Directory.

In the review, Penton Media’s Windows IT Pro editor Eric B. Rux said, “Unify Audit Manager is extremely simple to set up, and the product uses functionality that’s already built into Server 2008. The queries are easy to master, and the information that systems administrators, security analysts, or pesky auditors need is right at your fingertips. And at only $5 a user, it’s affordable for even a small company.” (Click to read the full review).  We are, of course, very pleased with the review.
