MphasiS Launches Portal Provisioning Solution Based on Thor Technologies' Xellerate Identity Manager Software

MphasiS and Thor Technologies Deliver the First Employee Portal Provisioning Solution to Improve Employee Productivity and Communication

London, 10 November 2004 - Thor Technologies, Inc., the secure enterprise provisioning expert®, together with MphasiS [MBFL.BO], a global IT and business process outsourcing firm, has announced the availability of the industry's first portal user provisioning solution.

The MphasiS Portal User Provisioning Solution (PortalUP) is powered by Thor's Xellerate® Identity Manager and enables complete automation and consistent view of user access rights and privileges across the portal and all connected systems. PortalUP is available immediately on a global basis. The first release is available for BEA WebLogic PortalT 8.1.

"User management is a common problem that de-rails many portal initiatives," said Jeroen Tas, vice-chairman and co-founder, MphasiS. "As a result, we worked with Thor to develop a differentiated solution for our clients that will increase efficiency across all employee channels. The solution reduces the cost and effort involved with managing user accounts, improves security by eliminating rogue and orphan accounts and ensures that security policies are enforced across the employee portal and all participating IT systems. We are confident that by continuing to combine our expertise with Thor's technology we can deliver measurable business value to our customers and address key security issues around identity and access management."

"As a partner of both companies, we are very excited that Thor and MphasiS have launched their provisioning solution for portals," said Paul Patrick, chief security architect, BEA Systems. "Thor's provisioning technology coupled with MphasiS' implementation expertise is designed to greatly improve user management capabilities in portal initiatives."

PortalUP includes pre-packaged resource adapters, business rules and workflows for the most common applications that are integrated with employee portals: content management systems, enterprise directories and email systems. The PortalUP package also includes the skilled professional services required to architect and deploy this solution and customises workflows to match corporate business processes. In addition, PortalUP can accelerate the on-boarding process for new employees and immediately revoke access for terminated employees across all connected systems, minimising operational risk from unauthorised user access privileges to resources within the portal.

"Identity management is a complex business and technical issue that requires a high level of expertise to capably serve enterprises that depend on a robust digital identity infrastructure in order to do business," said John Aisien, vice president of marketing and business development, Thor Technologies. "Working with tier-one partners, such as MphasiS, provides us with the unique insight into the challenges that our joint customers face and a channel for delivering solutions that anticipate and address specific business problems in an effective and compelling manner."
