Do you have users who use UNIX, Linux, and macOS machines connected to your AD domain? ADSelfService Plus, an integrated Active Directory self-service password management and single sign-on solution, helps enable self-service password reset and multi-factor authentication (MFA) for these systems:

  1. Endpoint MFA: Adds an extra layer of security to user accounts by enabling YubiKey, biometric, Google Authenticator, and other strong authentication methods for local and remote desktop logons to Windows, Linux, and Mac endpoints.
  2. Self-service password management: Allow users to reset passwords and unlock accounts right from the login screen of their Windows, Linux, and Mac machines.
  3. Custom password policy enforcer: Prevents users from setting weak and breached passwords for their accounts through an advanced password policy that bans dictionary words, keyboard sequence and supports Have I Been Pwned? Integration.
  4. Password expiration notifier: Automate password change reminders with alerts sent to users via email, SMS, or push notifications so they can change their passwords before they expire.

Simplify password management with ADSelfService Plus.
