FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN, October 2, 2018 -- Versasec, the leader in smart card management systems, today announced it is assisting users impacted by Microsoft's announcement that it will no longer support its Forefront Identity Manager (FIM) identity and access card management system, and its successor product, Microsoft Identity Manager (MIM). Versasec is the only identity card management company actively providing transition assistance. In its case, Versasec is helping customers seamlessly migrate from FIM/MIM to Versasec vSEC:CMS.
Officially, Microsoft's support for the FIM/MIM, which it is retiring, ended a year ago, but the software giant extended support for existing customers until October 2022 - for a price. Versasec has put together a simple guide to help companies make the transition from FIM/MIM to the vSEC:CMS S-Series.
With the built-in migration wizard in vSEC:CMS S-Series, users can quickly and easily upgrade from FIM/MIM to vSEC:CMS S-Series with no business interruptions, while taking advantage of the many features and customization options vSEC:CMS S-Series provides.
"Thousands of users are impacted by Microsoft's decision to discontinue support for FIM and MIM, so it's important they have options that can ensure their companies lose no momentum or have gaps in their smart card security management," said Joakim Thorén, CEO of Versasec. "And that's exactly what we're providing."
The migration process is simple:
Benefits for organizations that upgrade to vSEC:CMS S-Series include:
