ManageEngine ADSelfService Plus vs One Identity Password Manager
ManageEngine ADSelfService Plus is an integrated Active Directory (AD) self-service password management and single sign-on solution. This solution helps domain users perform self-service password reset and account unlock, and self-update of personal details (e.g., contact numbers and photos) in AD. ADSelfService Plus also provides AD-based single sign-on (SSO) for 100+ enterprise applications such as Office 365, Salesforce, and G Suite and secures access to network resources by enabling two-factor authentication for Windows logons.
One Identity Password Manager is a simple self-service solution that enables end users to reset forgotten passwords and unlock their accounts. On integration with One Identity Hybrid Subscription, One Identity Password Manager provides a myriad of cloud-delivered features and services. Also, Starling two-factor authentication provides a wide range of second factors to protect administrative and end-user access in Password Manager.
While ADSelfService Plus empowers users with AD-related self-service capabilities as well as help them maintain one identity over several applications, One Identity Password Manager functions predominantly as a simple password reset tool.
Highlights of ADSelfService Plus:
- Protects critical resources against potential threats with an additional layer of security to every remote and local Windows login.
- Help implement strong password policy that includes dictionary rule, pattern checker, and many other advanced options for all enterprise applications.
- Provides access to self-service portal right from the Windows and Mac login prompts.

- Both ManageEngine ADSelfService Plus and One Identity Password Manager are equally capable in allowing users to reset forgotten passwords without IT intervention. However, ADSelfService Plus is also inclined towards securing password management with TFA and password policy enforcer. One Identity Password Manager primarily focuses on self-service actions and requires integration with several other One Identity products to deal with security relevant actions such as MFA and enforcing custom password policy.
- If you are looking for a solution to ease the burden on your IT team by eliminating password-related help desk calls as well as make your workforce more productive, ADSelfService Plus is your best choice!
