PLEASANTON, Calif. -- December 17, 2013

ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today announced the launch
of the ADSelfService Plus Android app, a free Android app for enterprises
running the company’s self-service password management solution, ADSelfService
Plus. The native Android app lets end users easily reset their passwords and
unlock their accounts using just their Android smartphones and tablets from
anywhere, anytime — without help desk assistance. The ADSelfService Plus
Android app is available on the Google Play store at http://ow.ly/rOLb4. The
company also recently announced that ADSelfService Plus now supports
self-service management of passwords across select cloud-based applications.

“With nearly 30 percent of all calls to the help desk being password related,
the cost and productivity loss associated with forgotten passwords and
locked-out accounts has become a huge burden on many organizations,” said
Manikandan Thangaraj, director of product development, ManageEngine. “With
ADSelfService Plus, end users can reset their passwords and regain lost access
on their own — all this from the convenience of their mobile devices.”

ADSelfService Plus for Android

The password reset process in the ADSelfService Plus Android app is highly
secure. Users must answer a set of challenge questions and/or complete the
SMS- or email-based PIN code verification before they can continue the reset
process. The answers to challenge questions and the user’s mobile number and
email ID are collected through a one-time enrollment process. Users can enroll
for password self-service using the app itself.

With the launch of this app, ADSelfService Plus is now available on both iOS
and Android platforms. ADSelfService Plus can also be accessed from other
mobile platforms such as Windows Phone and Blackberry as well as through its
mobile web app.

In addition to the Android app, ADSelfService Plus offers users self-service
password management for various cloud-based applications including Google
Apps, Office 365, Salesforce.com and Zoho. Password self-service support for
on-premise systems such as IBM iSeries (AS/400), HP UX, Oracle Database and
Oracle E-Business suite is already available.

ADSelfService Plus can be configured to synchronize Windows Active Directory
passwords with the aforementioned cloud-based applications and on-premise
systems. In turn, IT admins can enforce the domain password policy rules of
Windows Active Directory — or their own corporate password policy — in cloud
applications and non-Windows systems, thus standardizing the security
requirements of a password in a hybrid IT environment. Meanwhile, end users no
longer need to remember multiple passwords.

Pricing and Availability

The ADSelfService Plus Android app is available on the Google Play store at
http://ow.ly/rOLb4. In addition to a fully functional, 30-day evaluation
edition, ADSelfService Plus is available as a Free Edition, Standard Edition
and Professional Edition. Standard Edition prices start at $595 per year for
500 users. Professional Edition prices start at $995 per year for 500 users.
