PLEASANTON, Calif - March 15, 2016 - ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today announced that its self-service password management solution, ADSelfService Plus, supports single sign-on (SSO) for SaaS applications. Now, ADSelfService Plus enables end users to access SaaS and on-premise applications without having to log in to each application separately.

In today's IT environment, fast-growing businesses adopt SaaS applications to make work simpler. However, an organization's rapid growth poses a serious challenge for its IT team. End users are forced to remember multiple usernames and passwords to access different applications resulting in password issues and other security problems such as forgotten passwords, account lockouts and weak or reused passwords. Help desk technicians and IT staff are bogged down with those low-level password management issues instead of focusing on more strategic tasks. With SSO, ADSelfService Plus provides end users the perfect combination of accessibility and security.
"Managing identities across multiple applications is a hassle for both the IT staff and the end users alike," said Parthiban Paramasivam, product manager at ManageEngine. "Single sign-on provides end users with a convenient method of accessing all of their accounts with a single set of credentials. And since ADSelfService Plus uses existing Active Directory credentials for authentication, you can secure the various accounts of end users behind the strong and complex domain password policies of your Windows environment."
ADSelfService Plus provides end users a secure and simple way to access the applications they require. End users only need to log in once with their Active Directory credentials, and they are automatically logged in to all the applications for which SSO is enabled. With SSO support, ADSelfService Plus helps businesses:
Simplify Application Access : End users need not remember and maintain multiple sets of credentials. They are automatically logged in to all the applications they need.
Securely Authenticate Users : End users are authenticated based on the tried and tested Active Directory domain password policy. This will prevent end users from creating weak passwords or using the same password across all apps.
Improve Productivity : IT staffs no longer have to manage password issues across multiple applications. End users spend less time entering their passwords for each and every app and more time actually using the apps.
In addition to the new SSO feature, ADSelfService Plus offers other, proven identity management features. The self-service password reset feature lets end users easily reset their forgotten passwords either through a Web portal or from the Windows logon screen. The real-time password synchronizer feature keeps the AD password synchronized with a wide range of on-premise and SaaS applications. It can effectively be used as an SSO substitute for applications that don't support SAML. ADSelfService Plus also has native Android and iOS mobile apps for password management on the go.
ADSelfService Plus with SSO for SaaS is available immediately. Pricing starts at $595 per year for 500 users. A fully functional, 30-da trial version is available at https://www.manageengine.com/products/self-service-password/download.html.
