Microsoft SQL Server

MS SQL - Active Directory integration

Microsoft SQL Server, a relational database management system, is used for storing and retrieving data as requested by other applications. Having separate login credentials for users' MS SQL and Active Directory (AD) accounts leads to password fatigue. ADSelfService Plus' Real-time Password Synchronizer ensures effective password management by synchronizing the password changes made to users' AD accounts with their MS SQL Server accounts and other connected applications.

What is password fatigue?

Password fatigue (also called password chaos or identity chaos) occurs when users have multiple identities across a variety of enterprise applications and IT systems. To complicate matters further, each password is subject to different set of password policies, password expiration dates, and have access at different security levels.

How to sync MS SQL server database passwords with AD via ADSelfService Plus

  • A user resets or changes their AD domain password through ADSelfService Plus or any native method. 

    Important: For native password changes from the Ctrl+Alt+Del screen or the ADUC console, the new password is synchronized across the connected platforms using a password sync agent.

  • ADSelfService Plus searches for the user’s MS SQL Server account using the user ID of that user's domain account or other mapped attributes.
  • If the user has connected Office 365G Suite, or any other IT system with their AD domain account, the new password will be  automatically synchronized with those accounts as well. 

Improving security with stringent authentication factors

Before users are allowed to synchronize their password via ADSelfService Plus, they are required to prove their identity through any of these authentication methods to ensure security.

  1. Security questions and answers
  2. Email verification
  3. SMS verification
  4. Google Authenticator
  5. Duo Security
  6. RSA SecurID
  7. RADIUS authentication
  1. Push notification authentication
  2. Fingerprint authentication
  3. QR code-based authentication
  4. Microsoft Authenticator
  5. Time-based one-time passcodes (TOTPs)
  6. AD-based secret questions
  7. YubiKey device

Self-service password reset for users' MS SQL Server account

ADSelfService Plus enables users to synchronize their new MS SQL password with a specific set of accounts or all their connected accounts. What if users forget that one AD domain password? ADSelfService Plus’ self-service password reset enables users to reset forgotten passwords without help desk assistance.

Comply with regulations via the custom password policy enforcer

ADSelfService Plus vets all password changes against the default Windows AD password policy settings. It also offers advanced password policy settings, enables admins to create a custom password policy that complies with HIPAACJISPCI DSS, and NIST, and ensures that this policy meets the password policy requirements of other connected applications. When admins layer the Real-time Password Synchronizer with a strong password policy, they extend the custom password complexity rules to users' connected on-premises and cloud applications.
