What happens in Vegas...

On April 25th, it's the Interop 2010 IT Expo and Conference

Hi All, this is a special version that is brought to you by our sponsor Namescape

Las Vegas is the place to be in April if your idea of a good time is immersing yourself in the latest innovations and technology. Interop is the meeting place for the global business technology community and presents the most comprehensive technology conference and expo available. Among the key topics at this year's conference are; Cloud Computing, Virtualization, IT Management, Green IT, and Security and Risk Management - a critical issue for every IT professional.

Strong identity management and tight user authentication are essential to preventing devastating security breaches. The resulting damage to an organization when user identities cannot be secured throughout the enterprise, and the associated costs including loss of data and even loss of customer confidence, can be just as devastating. Providing secure access for remote employees to the company network, key company systems, global address lists, and e-mail or web from home or abroad has become a major component of everyday IT strategy.

Interop 2010 is offering numerous sessions and workshops on all aspects of IT security during this year's conference. After a long day of focusing on such serious technological issues, you're going to need some relaxation. The good news is, you'll be in Vegas!

Stop by the Namescape booth, #2537 to see demos of Namescape's Identity Management and Password Management solutions and our Active Directory tools! Interop Las Vegas, April 25 to 29, 2010

Customer Feedback

"Namescape gave us a new Active Directory vision and helped us move to the next level. We brought a business problem to the table and they gave us an idea on how to leverage the rDirectory role into our business. We wanted to add value to our intranet and be able to provide clean information. Our Executive and C-level management team felt there was an important need to get people together, facilitating information, improving communication, even across countries. We created roles building employee and office directories, gathering requirements, molding its use for business. We are now able to look up client information and identify which ones are in a target market. rDirectory has provided a good solid business value."

"I am so indebted to you for mPowerTools. I've modified thousands of accounts the last few days (disables, dummy accounts, attribute changes) and I've spent about 1/10 of the time that I would have otherwise. So thanks again. I owe you big time."

A complete, web-based, self-service password reset solution!

Namescape has just released myPassword version 2.5.3, a simple yet powerful, self-service password reset solution that enables users to reset forgotten passwords and unlock their accounts.

This version now supports password history on self-service password resets. Administrators have always had to check the User must change password at next logon flag in order to enforce password history. With myPassword, users can reset their own passwords after answering custom, predefined questions. Passwords are reset and password history is enforced - all in one action.

myPassword supports Windows 2000/2003/2008 Active Directory environments and multiple access methods for easy access from anywhere. Now your organization can have it all; incredible security with an immediate ROI.
