Microsoft SQL Server, a relational database management system, is used for storing and retrieving data as requested by other applications. Having separate login credentials for users' MS SQL and Active Directory (AD) accounts leads to password fatigue. ADSelfService Plus' Real-time Password Synchronizer ensures effective password management by synchronizing the password changes made to users' AD accounts with their MS SQL Server accounts and other connected applications.
Password fatigue (also called password chaos or identity chaos) occurs when users have multiple identities across a variety of enterprise applications and IT systems. To complicate matters further, each password is subject to different set of password policies, password expiration dates, and have access at different security levels.
Important: For native password changes from the Ctrl+Alt+Del screen or the ADUC console, the new password is synchronized across the connected platforms using a password sync agent.
Before users are allowed to synchronize their password via ADSelfService Plus, they are required to prove their identity through any of these authentication methods to ensure security.
ADSelfService Plus enables users to synchronize their new MS SQL password with a specific set of accounts or all their connected accounts. What if users forget that one AD domain password? ADSelfService Plus’ self-service password reset enables users to reset forgotten passwords without help desk assistance.
ADSelfService Plus vets all password changes against the default Windows AD password policy settings. It also offers advanced password policy settings, enables admins to create a custom password policy that complies with HIPAA, CJIS, PCI DSS, and NIST, and ensures that this policy meets the password policy requirements of other connected applications. When admins layer the Real-time Password Synchronizer with a strong password policy, they extend the custom password complexity rules to users' connected on-premises and cloud applications.
