Findings: ROI from password management can be expressed in solid figures

Tools4ever, a market leader in Identity Governance & Administration (IGA), has been highlighted in a recent report released by Gartner . In this report, Gartner offers their observations and recommendations for the Password Management market. Gartner places Tools4ever and their Self Service Reset Password Management (SSRPM) and Password Synchronisation Manager (PSM) solutions with other cross-platform companies. According to Gartner, the functions covered by password management are increasingly incorporated into Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) solutions. In addition to its password management solutions, Tools4ever also offers an intelligent IGA environment.

Passwords are still the most frequently used authentication mechanism in organisations and Gartner estimates that 40% of all service desk calls are password related. Gartner's report states that password management tools are simple to implement and very quick to yield a positive ROI which can easily be expressed in tangible figures; reducing password reset calls by up to 70%.

The combination of self-service password reset and password synchronisation provides an incredibly strong form of authentication. Self-service password reset software ensures that users can reset their own Windows password any time they forget it. Combined with password synchronisation, end users no longer have to remember a host of different passwords required by the various systems/applications used on a day to day basis. Now all they need is one strong password.

Robert Doswell, Managing Director of Tools4ever, Ltd comments: "The fact that we were included as one of the solution providers in this report assures me that we are headed in the right direction and that Tools4ever is taking on a higher profile. Our password management solutions include not only SSRPM and PSM, but also a Password Complexity Manager (PCM). These solutions have been used by small businesses as well as major multinationals within a variety of industries for over ten years. Our clients confirm that a relatively minor investment in password management solutions can really get quick and effective results."
