Password Manager

Activate Password Manager enables users to register ‘secret’ questions and answers that can be used to verify their identity and allow them to reset their password without calling the service desk.

The product also allows passwords reset from the web interface to be 'flowed' through to external systems as required.   

According to Gartner, if a 10,000-employee company automated password-resetting alone, service desk calls could drop by one-third and the firm could save US$648,000 each year. According to Burton Group, studies show the management of passwords cost US$200 to US$300 per user, per year.
