Avatier Executes on Cloud Identity Management Vision With Microsoft Office 365 Connector

Automation, User Provisioning and Integration Embrace Cloud-Based Architecture

SAN RAMON, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/02/14 -- Earlier this month, identity management software developer Avatier broke new ground in customizable configuration with the announcement of its AIMS Office 365 Connector. The Avatier Identity Management Suite (AIMS) now includes complete integration with Office 365 accounts, marking significant milestone in Avatier's aim to automate IT by enabling integration through configuration.

According to Chris Arnold, Vice President of Services at Avatier, "The 365 Connector will fully automate provisioning and governance over users. It dramatically reduces risk by automating the removal of de-provisioned user accounts. We've strengthened security and slashed costs: it's a win-win."

With the Microsoft Office 365, Avatier continues to push identity management forward by extending its configurable framework to hosted systems, platforms and SaaS subscriptions. The notion of duplicating enterprise identities in the cloud is risk infused. The 365 Connector delivers immediate value. It offers out-of-the-box secure integration with Office 365, management over SaaS licenses in accordance with the Office 365 License and Retention Policy Manager, and DirSync directory synchronization of new AD accounts with the Office 365 cloud. Avatier customers can now fully automate Microsoft Office 365 user account provisioning and deprovisioning to reduce excess cost of unused SaaS licenses and reduce risk of dormant accounts.

The Microsoft Office 365 Connector extends Avatier's footprint into the cloud by enabling access to the most widely used SaaS platforms. Furthermore, it eliminates programming work: Avatier enables user-end configuration and deployment without custom development. The 365 Connector automates archiving, creation, deletion and management of Office 365 mailboxes with the Fully Automated User Mailbox Manager, which encompasses all user account privileges.

The 365 Connector makes customization possible through configuration rather than coding, marking a bold redesign toward full automation and fulfilling Avatier's pledge to embrace the most popular cloud-based architectures such as Microsoft Office, Microsoft Lync, SAP, Google Apps, Netsuite and others.

With AIMS Office 365, customers will benefit from the full value of cloud services -- without the risk. The Avatier Office 365 Connector is fully integrated with the Avatier Identity Management Suite so existing customers can include Office 365 user access information as part of their IT governance and IT audit reviews.

The AIMS Microsoft Office 365 Connector is available as part of the AIMS Advanced Connector Package. Existing customers using AIMS 9.5 can already use the connector. AIMS customers who have not yet upgraded to 9.5 should contact http://www.avatier.com/support/ and submit a request.
