Paramus, NJ, Aug 22, 2007 - Netwrix Corporation today announced the release of Password Manager. The product gives end users the ability to securely manage their passwords and resolve account lockout incidents without contacting helpdesk personnel. Password Manager can help organizations to implement strong password policies in Active Directory environments and solve their major identity management problems.
"Password management is the most common IT support issue bringing most helpdesk workload in many organizations," said Michael Fimin, CEO, Netwrix Corporation. "Password complexity and expiration policy requirements lead to frequently forgotten passwords and account lockouts, increasing overall administrative burden. We designed Password Manager with all these problems in mind and I´m confident that our new solution will bring a lot of value to companies seeking password management automation to optimize their IT helpdesk costs."
Netwrix Password Manager simply and cost-effectively allows users to reset forgotten passwords, troubleshoot account lockouts and unlock their locked accounts manually, through a convenient web-based self-service portal and integration with standard Windows logon procedure. The product also includes the interface for helpdesk personnel for handling issues not covered by the self-service part.
"Proper password management is a big challenge for most mid-size and large organizations," said Julie Jackson of S&J Computing, an IT consulting company. "Netwrix Password Manager has a comprehensive set of features and covers all typical issues we had before. Our users have always been nervous with constantly locking accounts and forgotten passwords but now they are really happy with almost immediate resolutions."
The product uses the question-and-answer security system for user authentication. First, users enroll by creating their profile. Once the profile is established, users can manage their passwords and accounts manually by simply supplying the answers from profile. The product supports Windows 2000/2003 Active Directory domains and all Windows client operating systems. All account operations are logged for regulatory compliance and easy access by IT personnel interested in monitoring of password management activity.
Netwrix Password Manager is a part of a family of solutions which also includes Password Manager for Roaming Users, Account Lockout Examiner and others meeting customers´ Active Directory and identity management needs.
