Set-up can be somewhat complicated but it has freed up account admins to perform other value-added work.

Valuable Features

This product allows end users to unlock their accounts, without having to wait for assistance from IT. The product can be made more secure by enabling two factor authentication.

Previous Solutions

No previous solution used.

Initial Setup

Set-up can be somewhat complicated depending on how secure you want the solution to be.

Implementation Team

In-house implementation.


Our IT helpdesk was fielding about 300 password resets/account unlocks per month prior to implementation.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

I’m not sure, I took over implementation, after purchase and initial installation was completed. Day to day cost would be keeping up with the two factor authentication SMS licenses. About $1 per SMS message sent to an end user.

Other Solutions Considered

We also looked at Microsoft Forefront.

Other Advice

It’s an excellent solution, with great security. It can be accessed via nearly any internet browser from nearly any type of device.
