Proginet Releases New Password Synchronization Adapters for Microsoft Host Integration Server 2004

Password Synchronization Adapters extend the Enterprise Single Sign On feature in Microsoft's Host Integration Server 2004 to mainframe and midrange-systems

Garden City, N.Y.-August 2, 2004-Proginet, developer of software to enable the secure integration of data across enterprises of all sizes, today announced the launch of enterprise password synchronization (ePST) Adapters for the Microsoft Host Integration Server (HIS) 2004 Enterprise Single Sign On.

The new ePS Adapters were developed by Proginet as part of the company's agreement with Microsoft Corp. to augment Microsoft's HIS 2004, scheduled for release later this summer. HIS 2004, part of the Windows Server System, will enable enterprises to connect applications on IBM host systems with Microsoft .NET-based systems. Once users log onto their primary computer, they can access resources on any system using Microsoft's HIS 2004 Enterprise Single Sign On (SSO) feature. The ePS Adapters enable single sign-on-even when passwords are changed-by extending the password synchronization functionality of the SSO technology to non-windows platforms.

"The password synchronization adapters for Microsoft Host Integration Server 2004 demonstrates Proginet's continued leadership in providing effective integration solutions," said Charles Machalani, senior product manager of the Business Process and Integration Division at Microsoft. "Microsoft Host Integration Server 2004 and the Password Synchronization Adapter will allow customers to take advantage of the product's Enterprise Single Sign On capabilities and do more with less."

"Microsoft is a global leader in the computing industry and we are pleased that they have chosen to collaborate with Proginet," said Arne Johnson, senior vice president for strategic alliances at Proginet. "We are confident that Proginet's ePS Adapters will be an excellent solution for customers, and expect that our technology will help open new markets for both companies."

The new software leverages Proginet's pioneering introduction of password synchronization software introduced eight years ago. In fact, ePS is based on Proginet's SecurPass®, a password synchronization and reset tool that allows businesses to improve corporate security, enhance company productivity and increase password strength while reducing support costs.

This latest collaboration builds upon a longstanding relationship between Microsoft and Proginet. The companies first began working together in 1994, developing file-transfer capabilities for the Windows platform. Over the next few years, the companies continued to co-develop software specifically tailored to meet the needs of Microsoft's enterprise customers.
