ViewDS is the trading name of eNitiatives.com Pty Ltd, the owner of the ViewDS suite of software.
The innovative ViewDS technology was conceived, designed and originally developed at the Telstra Research Laboratories in Melbourne, Australia. Dr Steven Legg, a key contributor to that design and development and is now Chief Architect at eNitiatives.com Pty Ltd.
In 2004, eB2Bcom, an Asia Pacific distributor of identity management solutions, acquired the business from Adacel who had previously licensed the rights from Telstra. eB2Bcom continued to develop and maintain the products and add substantial innovative functionalities, resulting in a name change from View500 to ViewDS. eB2Bcom’s focus remained on the Asia Pacific market
In July 2009, the ownership of the ViewDS IP and associated R&D was spun off from eB2Bcom into eNitiatives.com Pty Ltd, to focus on the international market and to exploit a technology advantage in the rapidly evolving Authorization market (eB2Bcom remains a reseller of ViewDS products in the Asia Pacific region).
With the global focus and first round private equity investment, by working with partners and “OEM” vendors, ViewDS products are now deployed in some 20 countries in North America, Europe, Middle East as well as Asia and Australasia.
