Automate Password Reset

Automate password resets with ADSelfService Plus

IT administrators in any organization agree that resetting passwords is tedious and time-consuming. Productivity is reduced because users aren't able to login, access necessary resources, or continue their work. They're also likely to get frustrated waiting for IT admins to reset their passwords. ManageEngine ADSelfService Plus, with its automated password management capability, is the ideal solution to help IT admins overcome productivity challenges.

ADSelfService Plus enables IT admins to automatically reset employee passwords and unlock accounts. It ensures users receive prompt attention to their password reset requests. Scheduled automatic password reset or account unlock also enables smooth and efficient password policy enforcement with minimal help desk calls.

Scheduled password reset

ADSelfService Plus scans the entire domain and generates reports on account lockouts, expired user passwords, and soon-to-expire user passwords automatically at the desired intervals. IT admins can configure ADSelfService Plus to automatically reset passwords or unlock user accounts, making it a powerful automated password reset and account unlock tool.

Generating secure passwords during automated password reset

With this automated password reset tool, IT admins can configure automatic password resets to comply with configured password policies. ADSelfService Service Plus' password policy enforcer feature helps enforce stringent policy requirements, such as restriction over consecutive repetition of the same character, dictionary words, patterns, and palindromes. When the automatic password resets are set to comply with these password requirements, the passwords generated will be immune to credential-based attacks.

Simplify end-user password management with a self-service tool

Besides automated password resets, ADSelfService Plus allows users to reset forgotten passwords on their own, without needing IT help desk assistance. Users are required to enroll in ADSelfService Plus before they can utilize the self-service password reset and account unlock features. IT admins can require users to enroll when they log in to their machine through a persistent pop-up reminder on their desktop or notify them via push notifications or email. IT admins can also leverage the users' existing Active Directory information for enrollment or import enrollment data from CSV files or an external database.

ADSelfService Plus supports various authentication methods, such as YubiKey, biometrics, Google Authenticator, push notification, and custom time-based one-time password apps, to verify users' identities and ensure security during a password reset.

Once users authenticate themselves, they can reset their passwords or unlock their accounts on their own. IT admins can keep track of actions performed by users in ADSelfService Plus through its built-in reports.
