Password Synchronization Manager (PSM)
Synchronize Passwords from AD to UNIX, AS400, Mainframe
End-users often have to remember multiple usernames and passwords. For this reason, they often scribble passwords on a sticky note or write them down somewhere near their workstations. End-users tend to choose simple passwords or seldom change their passwords. This results in user inconvenience, compromised security, and a plethora of helpdesk calls.
Password Synchronization Manager (PSM) is password software that allows end-users to have the same password for any system or application (Single Password). When an end-user resets his/her password, PSM ensures that all the connected systems and applications receive the new password and apply it. End-users only need to remember the single password to gain access to the various systems and applications.
PSM is fully transparent to end-users. After they have changed their password, PSM ensures that they can log in directly to all the required systems and applications. This provides improved end-user productivity and minimizes the number of password-related helpdesk calls.
- Meeting Security Requirements: Password Synchronization Manager meets the most stringent security requirements. Passwords are exchanged among PSM components in encrypted form. All the data written to the log file is also encrypted. This means the actual password will never be visible in plain text.
- Integration of Password Management: PSM offers seamless integration with other password software solutions by Tools4ever, such as Password Complexity Manager (PCM). When a password is reset, it will take into account the complexity rules set using PCM, along with the specific complexity rules governing the application in question. For instance, if an application prohibits the use of certain characters, this can be regulated via PCM so using those characters is automatically denied when an end-user enters their new password.
- Unlinking: It is also possible not to synchronize the passwords of specific users and accounts within PSM, keeping them outside the synchronization process.
