Self-Service Password Recovery for Microsoft SharePoint with PortalGuard

PortalGuard for SharePoint allows end-users to reset their Active Directory password without having to call the help desk. This feature is one of many that allows you to achieve true business value with your customer-facing (extranet) SharePoint site. PortalGuard’s integration with Microsoft SharePoint increases the security of your data and helps save your organization both time and money by reducing the number of help-desk calls. If users forget their SharePoint passwords, however, they may not want or need to create a new one. In this case, PortalGuard’s self-service password recovery makes more sense.

Self-service password recovery is another feature available within PortalGuard’s SharePoint integration. Depending on the situation, self-service password reset may not satisfy the needs of certain end users. Password Recovery allows users to recover or see their current password upon successfully completing their identity via their enrolled challenge answers or knowledge-based one-time passcode. The same identity verification is carried out during a self-service password reset.

Microsoft SharePoint is a very useful tool that is used by businesses and organizations worldwide as a place to store, organize, share, and access information from almost any device. The functionality of this cloud-based service combined with the enhanced security and usability attributes associated with PortalGuard makes recovering a SharePoint password easier than ever for end users.
