What if you could get your employees to understand boring topics like Active Directory password expiration, password complexity and information security? Furthermore imagine demonstrating real and measurable efficiencies across the IT service and ITIL space. Achieving efficiency, security and real savings is possible but there are certain considerations and decisions to make.
End-user Identity Management is often associated with several inefficiencies, namely around help desk requests for password resets, and frankly most end users don’t see the tangible benefits associated with effectively managing those identities. When employees are asked about their biggest pain points, you probably wouldn’t be surprised to learn that “passwords” and “help desk” are mentioned often!
Automation is the key to making these processes successful. Implementing an effective end-user password management system puts both the automation of end-user password resets and security at the forefront and helps address countless inefficiencies, combined with a level of automation that significantly reduces the scope for human error induced incidents.
By attending this KuppingerCole webinar, you will understand:
