[prMac.com] Santa Clara, California - BitsAbound Inc, an emerging leader in IT based mobile applications, has announced its latest offering, iCorpPass. iCorpPass - also known as "Windows Domain Password Change and Reminder", assist corporate users receive password expiry notifications as well as change the password directly from the comfort of the device.
IT Consumerization has brought numerous challenges to the IT Team in an organization, in terms of device management, security and other myriad issues to deal with. But at the same time, it has brought forth unique and disruptive innovations to tackle those same issues. We believe iCorpPass is one of those applications that can help millions of users and the thousands of IT departments secure and manage the most important aspect of their digital identities.
In a typical office with windows computers joined to an Active Directory domain, users received password notifications, and could change their corporate passwords directly from Windows computers. However, with the new IT consumerization wave, that includes cloud and web based applications, new devices running on different platforms and different form factors, users have become more mobile and agile. It has allowed them the freedom to perform the tasks from anywhere and anytime. The new work force is also more technology savvy and prefers self service over old traditional method of depending on IT for administrative tasks.
With iCorpPass, a user can directly login to the corporate domain from the personal iPhone,iPad or iPad Touch device. The app automatically calculates the password expiry date and set notifications on the device to remind 1,3 and 7 days before password expires. Now a user does not have to call HelpDesk to set password nor share their preferred passwords with them. They can change it on their own, securely and intimately from anywhere using their own personal devices. It is time for them to really dispose of that Active Directory Domain connected windows computer maintained just for password changes.
One the other hand, IT departments still invest huge time and resources to manage user's password reset and expiry. Remote workers and those who are on the move present even greater challenges. In some organizations, even users working within the corporate offices may not have the precise setup to receive notifications and options to change the password without IT intervention. We have seen IT departments manage Password reset kiosks running windows computers to help users change their passwords. A remote user working on VPN has to regularly sync the windows computers to maintain the ability to change passwords. IT Helpdesk members spend substantial time troubleshooting issues where users do not receive notifications nor can change passwords.
With the release of iCorpPass, we believe, this app would be a great tool for every organization that uses Active Directory as the central repository for user accounts and permissions. It would not only provide the freedom and ease that a modern users demands, but also help IT departments with their password reset and maintenance chores.
