Apr 04, 2001, 01:00 ET from M-Tech Mercury Information Technology, Inc.

    CALGARY, Alberta, April 4 /PRNewswire/ -- M-Tech Mercury Information
 Technology Inc., the leader in enterprise password management technology,
 today announced the release of P-Synch/Lite:  the first free, self-service,
 web-based password reset automation solution.  With P-Synch/Lite,
 organizations will be able to empower their users to quickly and securely
 reset their passwords without having to call the corporate help desk.
     "P-Synch/Lite will revolutionize the password management marketplace,"
 said Gideon Shoham, M-Tech's co-founder and CEO.  "Organizations will now be
 able to effectively divert the majority of help desk password reset calls,
 which typically account for 20 to 30 percent of call volume."
     P-Synch/Lite is available for download over the Internet to any
 organization, free of charge, as an entry-level password self reset
 technology.  P-Synch/Lite users will be able to seamlessly upgrade to the
 fully-featured P-Synch(TM) product as their requirements evolve.
     P-Synch/Lite is also available for license by software vendors for
 integration into their products.  M-Tech is now in the final stages of
 negotiations with several large help desk and self-service software vendors
 who are integrating P-Synch/Lite into their own offerings.  A series of
 announcements on these arrangements will be released shortly.
 
     P-Synch/Lite features
     P-Synch/Lite is web-based, and requires no client deployment.
     Enterprises no longer require significant investments in a self-service
 Q&A profile builder.  This facility is an integral component of P-Synch/Lite.
 
     Other features included in P-Synch/Lite:
     -- Self-service password reset automation.
     -- Password management for:
         -- Windows NT servers and domains.
         -- Windows 2000 servers and Active Directory domains.

     -- Automatic detection of accounts with uniform names, to reduce software

     -- Automated web-based server administration.
     -- Automated password policy enforcement.
 
     The fully featured P-Synch(TM) package
     For organizations whose requirements extend beyond self-service password
 reset, the fully featured P-Synch(TM) package offers many additional
 capabilities, including:
 
     -- Reduction in the incidence rates of password problems through password
        synchronization.
