Hitachi ID Releases Login Manager 6.0.1 (Previously P-Synch/SSO)



New version simplifies deployment, eases configuration, adds application support and improves reliability

CALGARY, April 7 /-- Hitachi ID Systems, Inc., a leading provider of identity management (IdM) solutions, announced the release of version 6.0.1 of the innovative Hitachi ID Login Manager (formerly P-Synch/SSO) product.

Hitachi ID Login Manager takes a unique approach to single signon technology. It reduces login time by automatically filling in application login IDs and passwords for users. Instead of depending on stored passwords and scripts to determine where and when to populate login IDs and passwords, Hitachi ID Login Manager relies on password synchronization, provided by Hitachi ID Password Manager (formerly P-Synch).

Hitachi ID Login Manager automatically detects applications which use the same credentials as the Windows login. Once a synchronized login prompt has been detected, its location is stored and it is automatically populated whenever it appears again.

"This version is a direct result of a number of large production deployments of Hitachi ID Login Manager," says Idan Shoham, Hitachi ID Systems' CTO. "It supports large scale deployment of this unique and cost effective single signon solution."

Release notes for Hitachi ID Login Manager 6.0.1 are available to all current and prospective customers. Customers may visit the support portal at the following URL or contact their account representative for details: https://hitachi-id.com/portal/
