US postal service chooses Oblix NetPoint for ID management

The US Postal Service has selected Oblix NetPoint to give online customers secure and password-protected web access via single sign-on to software tools and resources.

Once fully deployed, NetPoint will offer business customers and consumers a simple and collaborative interface through web services.

Integrated into the postal service's technical environment and running on Windows Server 2003, including Active Director, NetPoint's delegated administration, self-registration and self-service features will enable the Postal Service to manage millions of user identities.

NetPoint will make it easier for large mass-mailing customers to establish their own processes for adding and approving users and managing identity attributes for all users.

"The United States Postal Service is dedicated to providing real-time business solutions and technology that make it secure, efficient and easy for our customers to do business with us," said Postal Service chief information Robert Otto.

"The selection of Oblix NetPoint is part of a larger initiative that will help enable the Postal Service to move to a web services model and sets a new precedent for giving customers real-time access to the applications, resources and tools they need."
