Tools4ever, a global provider of identity governance and administration (IGA), has been included in the latest report released by Gartner. In this report, Gartner offers its observations and recommendations for the password management market and places Tools4ever and its Self Service Reset Password Management (SSRPM) and Password Synchronization Manager (PSM) solutions among other cross-platform companies. According to Gartner, the functions covered by password management are increasingly incorporated into IGA solutions. In addition to its password management solutions, Tools4ever also offers an intelligent IGA environment.
Passwords are still the most frequently used authentication mechanism in organizations today, and Gartner estimates that 40 percent of all helpdesk calls are password-related. Gartner’s report also states that password management tools are simple to implement and very quickly yield a positive ROI that can easily be expressed in solid figures by reducing password reset calls by up to 70 percent.
The combination of self-service password reset and password synchronization is incredibly strong, ensuring that users can reset their own Windows password any time they forget it. Combined with password synchronization, end users no longer have to remember the many different passwords required by the various target systems. Now all they need is one strong password.
“The fact that we were included as one of the solution providers in this report mean that Tools4ever continues to be recognized as a world-class leading provider of identity and access management systems, and that the company is becoming more well known in the sector,” said Dean Wiech, managing director of Tools4ever. “Our password management solutions include not only SSRPM and PSM, but also a Password Complexity Manager (PCM).
“These solutions have been used by small businesses and major multinationals for more than 10 years and our clients can confirm that a relatively minor investment in password management solutions easily translates into tangible results very quickly.”
