Both ManageEngine ADSelfService Plus and Lepide AD Self-Service provide features to clamp down on password-related help desk calls.

However, ADSelfService Plus offers a lot more features and supports multiple platforms when compared with Lepide AD Self-Service. Enterprise SSO, password sync to multiple platforms, cached credentials update, employee search, and 2FA for Windows logons are some of the important features missing in Lepide AD Self-Service.

Moreover, ADSelfService Plus supports fourteen different authentication methods for verifying users’ identities. It also supports integration with help desk tools and other applications. All of these critical features are not present in Lepide AD Self-Service.

From the above comparison table, it is pretty clear that ADSelfService Plus is a vastly superior solution than Lepide AD Self-Service.
