ManageEngine ADSelfService Plus vs Microsoft Azure AD Password Management

The prime objective of Self-Service Password Reset software is to allow end-users who have forgotten their passwords or have been locked-out of their accounts, to securely reset their own passwords and unlock their accounts without help desk intervention. ManageEngine ADSelfService Plus and Microsoft Azure AD Password Management are two different software products that provide self-service password management. While the former packs in an array of compatible self-service features and plenty of canned reports at an affordable price, the latter lacks some nifty features and costs a lot more.

The cloud-based Microsoft Azure AD Password Management has certain limitations owing to its cloudbased infrastructure. Limitations like the lack of a login agent for password reset, the need for implementing an Active Directory Federation Service (ADFS) to link your local AD with the cloud-based Azure AD and inability to reset passwords of remote users make it a complex product to set up and implement.

The following are some noteworthy advantages of ADSelfService Plus over Azure AD Password Management:

  • ADSelfService Plus synchronizes AD password changes in real-time across multiple cloud based and on-premise applications while Azure AD Password Management tool does not support that functionality
  • ADSelfService Plus allows users to self-update their personal information, search for their colleague's information, and subscribe and unsubscribe to distribution groups. Azure AD Password Management tool does not offer any of the above said functionalities.
  • ADSelfService Plus provides a login agent for password reset. Azure AD Password Management tool does not provide a login agent for password reset and requires users to access the portal from a shared system.
  • ADSelfService Plus provides native Android and iPhone applications for password management on the move. Azure AD Password Management tool does not provide native mobile tools for Android and iPhones.

Conclusion

  • While both ManageEngine ADSelfService Plus and Azure AD Password Management empower users to reset passwords on their own without the assistance of the IT helpdesk, Azure AD Password Management remains single dimensional by supporting password management only from web browsers. ADSelfService Plus on the other hand provides login agents for Windows and Mac devices, native Android and iPhone apps for password management on the go and many other features that make password management simpler for both users and administrators alike. Additionally,
  • ADSelfService Plus offers extra self-service features like ‘Mail Group Subscription’, ‘Multi-Platform Password Synchronizer’, ‘Cached Credentials Update’, ‘Self-Update of personal information’ and ‘Employee Search’.
  • Overall, ADSelfService Plus will give you a better return on investment by ensuring that password reset calls are a thing of the past in your organization
