Reset passwords

Background / Value

Resetting  passwords is one of the most common tasks performed by help desks. 8MAN allows an easy and secure way of resetting passwords. All sensitive actions are documented in the log book. If an employee uses native tools to reset a password and illegally tries to access that user account, the incident is captured with AD Logga. Especially sensitive user accounts can be monitored with 8MATE AD Logga alerts.
