Patch Manager Plus web client is the patch management interface for various patching activities like deploying patches, installing/ uninstalling software applications, testing patches before deployment, and so on. If a disloyal person gets access to this interface, he/she can perform any undesirable activities using Patch Manager Plus. Moreover, with the increase in software applications, each with their own authentication and password complexity levels, it becomes very difficult to remember all the passwords.
Patch Manager Plus addresses this problem with Active Directory Authentication. If you have a Windows domain setup, you can make the Active Directory's password policy work for you. You can make the users login to Patch Manager Plus using their domain logon name and password. This will greatly minimize the risk of making others using your password to access Patch Manager Plus Web interface.
