ManageEngine ADSelfService Plus vs IBM IAM solutions

ManageEngine ADSelfService Plus is an integrated self-service password management and single sign-on solution. It offers self-service password reset and account unlock, endpoint multi-factor authentication, single sign-on to enterprise applications, Active Directory-based multi-platform password synchronization, password expiration notification, and password policy enforcer. It also provides Android and iOS mobile apps that facilitate self-service for end users anywhere, at any time. ADSelfService Plus helps reduce IT expenses associated with help desk calls, improves the security of user accounts and spares end-users the frustration due to computer downtime.

IBM’s IAM solution portfolio includes several separate modules that take care of authentication and identity management.

This document draws a comparison between the self-service password management
and SSO capabilities of both the products.

Conclusion

As is evident from the above table, both ManageEngine ADSelfService Plus and IBM offer comprehensive self-service password management capabilities through their solutions. Let us look at the key differences between both solutions.

  • The first major difference is that IBM offers password management, multi-factor authentication and single-sign on capabilities in different modules whereas ManageEngine ADSelfService Plus offers a single, comprehensive solution to self-service password management, multi-factor authentication, and single-sign on.
  • ADSelfService Plus's custom Password Policy Enforcer feature goes above and beyond the existing AD password policy settings and offers many other password complexity rules that allow admins to ensure the creation of strong and complex passwords by controlling the characters used in the password, preventing character or password repetition, and banning the use of certain words and phrases
  • ADSelfService Plus supports up to 15 different authentication methods for multi-factor authentication.
  • ADSelfService Plus offers the directory self-update feature that allows users to update their AD profile information (attribute values) like address, mobile number, Social Security Number, etc.
  • Besides the ADSelfService Plus web portal, the ADSelfService Plus mobile app can also be used for self-service actions like password reset and account unlock.
