Password Management enables the IT department to put the power of managing passwords in the hands of the end users.  End users rely less on the Helpdesk, leaving Helpdesk available for other problems.


Password Management software applications help users store and organize their passwords. Password Managers store passwords in an encrypted state, requiring the user to authenticate using a master password; ideally a strong password which grants the user access to their entire password store.  The Password Manager solution also offers the ability to reset their master password, when forgotten, using a variety of methods such as answering passphrase questions, SMS texting to a known device and password change instructions being sent to known e-mail accounts to name a few.
