Password Reset, Unblock, (De-)Activate Accounts

A classic in IT operations

It happens almost daily – users have forgotten their password on vacation or have logged in incorrectly too often, so that the user account has been locked. You also have to activate or deactivate ad hoc user accounts again or unlock them just for a period of time. All the smallest tasks that take up your time and are naturally ideal for delegation.

Done at the touch of a button

It would be a great relief for you as an administrator if the help desk or the departments could manage the passwords and user accounts themselves. Activating/deactivating user accounts would also be a task for the help desk.

Available for Microsoft Active Directory and Azure Active Directory

“We never expected that it would be possible to install, configure, familiarize ourselves with and directly implement two use cases in such a complex topic within two hours. This impressed us quite a lot and made the decision easy for us, as we have already realized the first benefits directly.”
