Modify the Contents of Emails
Easily modify the content of emails from the GUI or directly from the property file. Whenever your users take any action within Lepide Active Directory Self Service, such as changing or resetting a password, Administrators can now change the content of the emails that are sent out to that end user.
Change Passwords at Next Logon
Enable users to change their passwords at the next logon to help implement password policies and take some of the strain off the IT department. Admins can select or unselect this option via a check box within Lepide Active Directory Self Service.
Get a Bird’s Eye View of User Activity
Our web-based, intuitive dashboard helps you spot specific trends such as account lockouts, password resets, enrolment data, users not enrolled, overall activity over last seven days and user status. It’s an easy and visual way to keep tabs on your Active Directory identity management and to help spot potential abuse or issues.
Ensure the Security of Your IT Environment
We understand that allowing users to access and update their information in your Active Directory carries an element of risk. To address this, we provide you with the ability to lock down what the user can and can’t view/modify. We ensure they can only update the fields you specify. You can predefine within the solution whether the user has no access, read only or full control across any of the following Active Directory Attributes – general, contact and address. This solution also enables you to integrate your SSL certificate to ensure the entire process is secure and encrypted. It automatically redirects from HTTP to HTTPS when SSL security is enabled. We also provide session expiry to ensure only relevant, current requests are considered.
Authenticate Through Either OTP SMS or Challenge/Response
To help maintain identity integrity and identity management, we provide you with a few different methods of authentication, including the challenge response method where you can specify the number of pre-set questions and the number of characters in questions/answers to ensure maximum security. We also offer you strong authentication through OTP (one-time password), where the user is authenticated by an SMS or email verification process. You can easily define how you wish your users to authenticate through the main console. Read more
Specify Account Unlock Periods
As an administrator, you may want to specify a policy which automatically unlocks all locked accounts at a particular point in time or on a specific schedule. Our solution provides this capability which is easily configurable through the intuitive management console.
We Provide You with Bulk Enrolment
When you first deploy this solution, it’s likely you will want to go through a process of bulk enrolment. To achieve this, you will need to get all the relevant enrolment details into a CSV file with the challenge/response information to import into the solution. From there we will automatically update and notify all the users of their enrolment along with instructions for use.
Get Comprehensive Audit and Enrolment Reports
Rather than having to constantly check the console to make sure your users are behaving as they should, we ensure you get regular reports delivered straight to your inbox. These reports will show you details such as enrolment, self-service actions performed by users, password expiry and lockout details. Read more
Enable End Users to Authorize Co-Workers and Perform Self-Service Activities
Aside from allowing end users to perform self-service activities and update their Active Directory details, you can also allow them to delegate certain tasks to other authorized employees through our ‘Authorize co-worker’ feature. This allows the end user to specify account unlock and password reset tasks to others within the business. Users will also receive a notification whenever a password reset, or account unlock task is executed.
Allow Users to Reset Their 3rd Party Application Account Passwords
Lepide Active Directory Self Service not only allows end users to reset their AD account passwords, but also enables the synchronization of third party applications and the resetting of those particular passwords from the tool itself. Password synchronization is currently available for Office 365, IBM AS400 and Google Apps. Once administrators configure the account settings for these applications, users can reset their Office 365, IBM and/or Google Apps passwords by simply resetting their AD account password.
