Omni - Riva Managed Applications for GroupWise

Novell Technology Partner

product details

Riva Managed Applications for GroupWise allow administrators to enforce corporate signature policies in GroupWise and create secure and dynamic GroupWise distribution lists that include external sources.

Riva Managed Signatures
The Riva Managed Signature application allows administrators to push eDirectory values into GroupWise signatures. This helps you standardize corporate signatures; manage communications and messaging; satisfy regulatory compliance requirements; and provide local language support for user and department signature control for international companies.

Riva Secure Distribution Lists
The Riva Secure Distribution Lists application allows you to configure which accounts are authorized to send emails to secure GroupWise distribution lists, manage distribution list membership visibility and include external email addresses in your system distribution lists. Secure Distribution Lists allows administrators to include external email addresses in GroupWise distribution lists by supporting CSV text files or links to third-party applications, CRMs and database queries.

Riva's Secure Distribution Lists (SDL) uses Riva's Event Monitor service to "intercept" and process emails based on the SDL access control and distribution policy. SDL confirms whether the email sender is an authorized sender before recreating and distributing the email to the secured distribution list members.

Riva Dynamic Distribution Lists
Riva's Dynamic Distribution List application delivers on a long-standing need within GroupWise - the ability to have GroupWise distribution lists members be "linked" to eDirectory group membership. You simply create a Riva DDL policy that assigns one or more eDirectory groups as the source and a GroupWise distribution list as the destination and you're done. Any user added to the source eDirectory group is automatically assigned as a member of the destination GroupWise distribution list the next time Riva's DDL is executed.

It gets even better when you configure the optional LDAP query or external database functionality. This allows you to use LDAP queries to create Dynamic GroupWise Distribution Lists based on the values of multiple eDirectory attributes; or LDAP queries to external databases, CRMs or third-party applications. You can have distribution lists based on users whose "department" is W, whose "country" is X, whose "position" is Y and whose "manager" is Z.

Riva's Dynamic Distribution List module provides ultimate flexibility by automatically populating distribution list memberships. Think of the advantages of never having to worry about distribution list membership accuracy and the time and money you can save by not having to manually manage distribution lists.
