Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $50,000 to USA, Canada, and International K-12 schools and institutions of higher education to implement a system that allows users to reset their password without the need for help desk intervention. Funding is intended for software licensing, hosting, support, and professional services costs associated with implementing a self-service password management solution.

Manual password reset is a very common problem in many Institutions. The amount of calls that the IT helpdesk receives can skyrocket not just shooting up helpdesk costs but also keeping them waiting for a long time until their passwords are manually reset.

Password Manager is a Self-Service Password Reset tool that lets end users recover their accounts and passwords without having to call the IT helpdesk. This not only cuts short the time they get access to the portal but, also helps save a lot of helpdesk costs. In addition to it, institutions could completely get rid of ‘default passwords’ by helping first-time users set up their accounts, passwords, and security questions on their own.

Benefits of a Self-Service Password Manager

To deliver uninterrupted access to essential applications without the dependency on the IT helpdesk, campuses automate password resets. It not only gives students instant access to their accounts through self-service password reset but also frees the IT helpdesk thereby delivering considerable IT cost savings.

The Self-Service Password Manager Grant functionality includes configuration against multiple directory servers, security questions, multi-factor password recover, password policy configuration, expiry notifications, and many other security features.
