Enable self-service password managementContact Us
Specops uReset enables end users to address common tasks related to password management including forgotten passwords, locked out Active Directory accounts, password resets, and changes. The solution goes beyond the traditional identity verification methods, and revolutionizes self-service with flexible authentication prior to resets. With a powerful multi-factor authentication engine, uReset ensures that users always have a secure way to reset their password, from any location, device, or browser.
Enrolling with uReset is simple. Guide users to their enrollment using configurable reminders and notifications. To guarantee adoption, use the pre-enrollment options to register users before roll out. If you are using uReset with any of the other Specops Authentication products, you can extend user enrollments to secure service desk assisted password resets, and encryption key recovery. Additionally, if you are using Specops uReset with Specops Password Policy (with Breached Password Protection validation) users will not be allowed to select a weak password during the password creation process.

How does it work?
uReset is natively integrated with Active Directory. Configuration of the system is done using Group Policy, without introducing added complexity to your environment. This means that no external database is required to store password related information. User data is stored directly in Group Policy user objects, minimizing security risk while ensuring inherent real-time password provisioning. uReset consists of the following components and does not require any additional resources in your environment. The authentication backend, web, and identity services are hosted in the cloud. You will only need to install the Gatekeeper component.
What does it look like?
uReset enhances login security by extending multi-factor authentication to self-service password reset. There are 15+ identity services available to ensure that you can select the best options for your users. However, since not all identity services are equally secure, we allow administrators to assign each identity service a trust value, based on their perceived level of security. The trust assignment is managed via stars, as shown below.
Why customers choose Specops?
“It’s very simple to use, I would say. You just have a link on the first page of your computer, click that one, open the authenticator in your phone, get a code, put it in, and then you write a new password, and then you’re up and running again.”
Thomas Lundvall, Manager R&D Sweden Mechanics at Cargotec https://specopssoft.com/our-case-studies/cargotec-boosts-productivity-with-specops-ureset/
“But most importantly the system has proven to be super end user friendly, especially around authentication with all the options such as Twitter, Facebook and Fingerprint authentication to name a few. Our users get it, it’s quick, and secure.”
