The undeniable IT expense from expired Active Directory passwords.

Changing Active Directory passwords periodically is crucial, as it prevents hackers from gaining access to network resources, even if they have stolen user credentials. Configuring password expiration to a set number of days, say 90, is a common practice among IT admins. However, users forget to change their soon-to-expire passwords and raise a password reset ticket because they:

  • Have Active Directory accounts only for VPN or Outlook Web Access, so they never log on interactively to see Windows notifications.
  • Do not notice the password expiration reminder in their Windows taskbar.
  • Use macOS or Linux workstations, so they don't receive Active Directory password expiration notifications.

What happens if you don't have a
password expiration notifier

The help desk is overwhelmed with password reset tickets. More password reset tickets also means higher costs being generated by the organization. The user's work is put on hold until the password is reset and the user can log in again. This can set off a chain reaction, affecting many other employees' work. When a password is reset by the help desk, it has to be given to the user in plain text. This can expose the user account to many security risks.

in a year for an organization with
500 employees, according to a study by Widmeyer.

Escape password expiry expenses

Notify users before their password expires, for free.

ADSelfService Plus' Password Expiration Notifier automatically sends password and account expiration reminders to users via SMS and email notifications. Also, as it's highly unlikely that users will respond to a one-time password change alert, ADSelfService Plus sends multiple notifications at specified intervals. For instance, admins can choose to send a password expiration alert 10 days before the password expires, then send a second reminder eight days before expiration, a third when it's five days from expiration, a fourth at three days, and a fifth and final reminder a day before the password expires.
