Self-Service Enterprise Password Reset & Synchronization
Password related calls bogging down your help desk? ReACT, a self-service password reset and synchronization solution for the entire enterprise, allows end users to reset their passwords to a permanent value in four simple steps – without calling the help desk!
What is ReACT?
THE PASSWORD PROBLEM
Modern business organizations consist of numerous types of end users touching dozens of enterprise-level apps, resulting in a seemingly endless amount of login credentials. When end users need to reset their passwords, relying on a classic help desk structure for support can create a devastating ripple effect throughout the organization as the calls pour in. Alternatively, a lack of end users contacting the help desk regarding password-related issues is not necessarily a sign that all is well. “123456” and “password” are the most hacked passwords year-after-year for a reason: passwords that are easy to guess or are written down may keep end users from contacting the help desk, but they will not keep your organization or its accounts secure.
The password problem is a situation you know all too well: an end user is locked out and must call the help desk to regain access, and the help desk is pulled off their task and must trust in validating the end user over the phone before both parties can resume their original workload for the day – and this is the best case scenario. What you may not know is, on average, passwords account for 40% or more of all help desk calls and 81% of confirmed data breaches. Mishandling password related issues causes a marked decrease in productivity and steep increase in costs while opening your organization to security vulnerabilities ranging from the exposure of unprotected passwords to the infringement of governance compliancies. ReACT, a self-service solution, alleviates these costly security and productivity gaps by allowing end users to securely solve their password-related issues without needing to contact the help desk.
REACT. SO YOUR HELP DESK DOESN’T HAVE TO.
ReACT™ is an enterprise-wide solution which eliminates password-related calls to the help desk by providing a self-service means for end users to reset their passwords, synchronize their passwords, and unlock their accounts 24x7x365. Placing access authority in the hands of end users may seem counterintuitive to an organization’s identity management protocol, but given the right tool, such as ReACT, this practice actually improves security standards. ReACT frees the help desk from password-related tasks and enables end users to solve their password-related problems, improving employee satisfaction, productivity output, and the company bottom line. ReACT automates the password reset and synchronization process, providing support for virtually all operating systems and applications within the enterprise without requiring drastic changes to your current environment. By ensuring proper user authentication, password management, and identity verification, this scalable solution eliminates downtime, security vulnerabilities, and other help desk worries, all while saving your organization thousands of dollars.

How it Works
PERMANENT SOLUTION TO ENTERPRISE LOGIN BARRIERS
To ensure successful adoption, end users can rapidly enroll themselves or the help desk can enforce automatic or forced enrollment. Resetting a password in ReACT is done in four simple steps: identification, authentication, system selection, and password creation. The password created in ReACT has a permanent value, so end users are able to quickly and efficiently overcome the standard login barriers and get back to work. ReACT can be accessed via any web-enabled device, making it ideal for the enterprise environment. End users can authenticate to ReACT using multiple methods, and, for an extra layer of security, ReACT can enforce a multi-factor authentication approach.
Built to make your life easier.
