Today's users are plagued with the never-ending task of creating, managing, and updating countless usernames and passwords. The more passwords users have to remember, the higher the chance they'll forget them. This often leads to an increased number of password-related support tickets for the help desk and a loss in productivity for employees.
To deal with this recurring scenario, IT decision makers must invest in an enterprise password management solution that reduces the help desk workload and helps users perform various self-service activities, such as resetting passwords and unlocking accounts without IT assistance.
ADSelfService Plus brings enterprise password management under one roof to benefit end users and admins alike.
ADSelfService Plus enables users to reset their forgotten AD passwords and unlock locked-out accounts on their own after verifying their identities. Besides the default web-based portal, ADSelfService Plus supports password resets in the places users typically realize they've forgotten their passwords: the logon screen of their machines and mobile devices (iOS and Android). The solution offers login agent support for three major computer operating systems: Windows, macOS, and Linux.
ADSelfService Plus can send reminders about users' imminent password expirations via email, SMS, and push notification. As it's highly unlikely that a user will respond to a single password expiration reminder, ADSelfService Plus enables multiple alerts to be sent at predetermined intervals. In addition to password expiration notifications, ADSelfService Plus can warn users about soon-to-expire AD accounts. On top of this, it can also send reports on the delivery status of all sent notifications to managers and IT admins.
ADSelfService Plus' Password Policy Enforcer feature enacts strong password policy controls in AD and cloud apps. The solution enables advanced password policy controls, such as options to block dictionary words, patterns, etc.—functions that are not available using native AD tools. When users reset their passwords, ADSelfService Plus ensures that employees are complying with the organization's password policy guidelines. Additionally, admins can configure ADSelfService Plus to display the enforced password policies on the password reset page and change password page. This helps users easily choose a strong password on their first try.
ADSelfService Plus’ Real-time Password Synchronizer offers secure password management by only requiring users to remember one password to access all their enterprise accounts. When users make changes to their Windows AD password using ADSelfService Plus or using any of the native methods in Windows, the changes are automatically reflected in all connected applications, such as Office 365 and G Suite. The Password Sync Agent synchronizes any password changes made via the native Windows interface (Ctrl+Alt+Del screen) as well as enterprise password resets via the ADUC console.
ADSelfService Plus provides AD-based SSO that gives users seamless, one-click access to all SAML-enabled cloud applications with just one corporate credential. Users are simply required to log in to ADSelfService Plus' console, which acts as the identity provider. They can then view a dashboard that lists all the cloud applications they're allowed to access. With just one click, users can access each application without having to enter their usernames and passwords each time.
With security as a primary concern, ADSelfService Plus applies stringent authentication techniques to verify every self-service password reset attempt. The solution uses security questions and answers, verification codes, Google Authenticator, Duo Security, SAML Authentication, RSA SecurID, RADIUS, AD Security Questions & Answers, fingerprint authentication, QR code-based authentication, mobile push notifications, and one-time passcodes to verify user identities. ADSelfService Plus also grants admins the flexibility to enforce different sets of MFA techniques for specific sets of users based on OUs and groups.
ADSelfService Plus' native iOS and Android apps help users reset passwords and unlock accounts right from their mobile devices at any time, anywhere. If users have enterprise accounts like Office 365 and G Suite linked with their AD credentials, they can sync AD passwords across all their apps in real time via their mobile apps.
Admins need to manage user identities across different on-premises and cloud applications, which is no easy task. ADSelfService Plus simplifies password management by enabling admins to send real-time password reset alerts to users, and automate password resets. Essentially this means admins can simply set up a password reset scheduler that keeps track of user password expiration statuses and resets them to the configured default value on a regular basis. Additonally, every time a user's password is reset, the user receives an SMS message, email, or push alert.
