  • Reduce Help Desk Calls with Password Reset Server

    Any help desk or system administrator will tell you that their company spends much more time resetting end-user passwords then they should. Constant calls to the help desk for this simple yet urgent problem eat a lot IT’s time that could be spent working on other projects and support issues.

    To help alleviate this problem, Thycotic Software developed Password Reset Server. Password Reset Server is a self-service password reset tool for Active Directory end-users. It makes the password reset process very simple and straightforward, with a Windows login integration for in-network employees and a web portal for those off-site.

    Some of the main features of Password Reset Server include:

    Self-Service Password Resets

    End-users are put in charge of changing their own passwords. With secure identification, I.T. no longer has to be directly involved.

    Automatic Enrollment

    IT teams can bulk-enroll all employees. That way, users can simply log into the site and answer questions based on Active Directory attributes when they need to change their passwords.

    Multi-factor Questions

    Add security to ensure the correct person is resetting their password with multi-factor authentication, including verification via phone, email and SMS.

    By providing a secure method for end-users to reset their Active Directory passwords, Password Reset Server helps reduce support demands on help desk staff and allows them to focus on other tasks while giving end-users a quick and easy interface for changing their own passwords.
