Password reset software ready for BYOD
Tools4ever’s password reset software ready for BYOD
Tools4ever, a market leader in Identity & Access Management (IdM/IAM), has made its Self Service Reset Password Management (SSRPM) solution suitable for Bring Your Own Device. With the latest version of SSRPM, employees can now use the service on mobile systems i.e; laptops, tablets, and smartphones, so that end users can easily reset their Windows passwords anywhere, anytime. Once the end user has answered a set of questions correctly, the user may then reset his or her own password.
Additionally, CAPTCHA functionality has now been added to the web interface. CAPTCHA requires users to enter randomly generated letters and numbers shown in order, to verify they are human. This functionality can now easily be enabled or disabled by the system administrator. In the latest version it is also now possible to add SSRPM profiles on the basis of security groups. Previously, profiles were only assignable at the domain or Organisational Unit (OU) level. This feature has been developed specifically for organisations which do not wish to modify their OU structure. Additionally, the software has been translated into Chinese.
"We are seeing that more and more workplaces are adopting a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy" comments Robert Doswell, Managing Director of Tools4ever, Ltd. "As such we are updating all of our Identity & Access Management software so it is suitable for mobile systems and working from home. For example, last year we introduced offline support in SSRPM, allowing those end users without a connection to the corporate network to reset their password. This is the next stage in that process."
Self Service Reset Password Management from Tools4ever is extremely user-friendly. If end users have forgotten their username and/or password but still want to log in, they can click the extra 'Forgot My Password' button SSRPM offers. SSRPM then launches the self-service password reset wizard and presents a number of questions the user previously enrolled with. After the questions have been answered, SSRPM then logs the end user in automatically. More information about Self Service Reset Password Management (SSRPM)
