Centralized Self-Service Password Reset Tech Brief
The true success of a Self-Service Password Management solution is measured by user satisfaction and return on investment through reduced password-related help desk calls.
Password is a constant struggle, and many users are stuck in an endless loop of resetting forgotten passwords. On average, password resets can cost an enterprise up to $75 per incident and account for more than 30 percent of help desk calls. By allowing users to self-service their own account and password management needs, organizations can drastically reduce help desk calls, cut costs, and improve productivity.
Self-Service Password Reset (SSPR) is any process that allows users to reset a forgotten password through their own efforts, without the need to involve a third party (such as the local help desk). However, with expanding access scenarios, more advanced solutions are needed to increase usability and promote user adoption.
PortalGuard's SSPR solution is a complete, flexible option that provides users with access to self-service functionality across Windows and Mac desktops, as well as web-based portals. The three major components of self-service include password reset, password recovery, and account unlock.
