ManageEngine ADSelfService Plus vs Microsoft Identity Manager

ManageEngine ADSelfService Plus and Microsoft Identity Manager (MIM) are two different software that serve this purpose. While the former is dedicated to this sole objective, the latter comes as a part of a larger identity management offering with self-service password reset as a component.

Key differentiators that set ADSelfService Plus apart:

Ease of use: Built-in features that work without scripting or exhaustive manual configurations.
Easier deployment: Easy to deploy in a matter of minutes, even in a large IT environment.
Enterprise single sign-on: One-click access to 100+ cloud applications, authenticated by the domain or third-party identity provider credentials.
Complementary self-service features: Employee Search and Organization Chart to further boost the self-service capabilities of users.
Mobile apps: Native mobile apps for Android and Apple devices, and mobile web app for other platforms.
Cached credentials update: Ability to update the local cached credentials in users' machine so that remote users can access their machines even if they forget the password.
Password Policy Enforcer: Enforce a custom password policy to ensure that your organization is secure.

The professional version starts at $ 1195 for 500 users.

Conclusion

From the above comparison matrix it is established that both softwares are equally efficient in reducing helpdesk tickets through self-service password reset and account unlock. However, ADSelfService Plus is comparatively more flexible and user friendly with its built-in enrollment facilitation and reminder capabilities. This works to the advantage of enterprises by enabling easy adoption, security, and control at the best value for money

Microsoft Identity Manager promises several capabilities, most of which can be done only with the help of external tools or through scripting capabilities of an administrator. Further this software is reliant on several supporting pre-requisites and has a complex licensing module making it difficult for an administrator to justify the ROI on deploying this software just to overcome password reset challenges. In case you require an identity management solution for user provisioning and governing access to resources, ManageEngine AD360 is a better bet. When in need of a secure self-service password management solution, ADSelfService Plus beats Microsoft Identity Manager hands down.
