- Enable self-password resets and self-account unlocks.
- Use advanced authenticators to verify user identities.
- Secure Windows, macOS, and Linux logons with two-factor authentication.
- Improve user account security with password policy enforcer.
- and more. If your organization is looking to empower users with self-service, then a dedicated self-service password management solution such as ADSelfService Plus would be the sensible option. It is affordable, bundled with a wide range of features, and will make for a happier workforce!
