Allow Active Directory, NT Directory, and SQL Membership users to change their password through SharePoint
Give your internal and external SharePoint users the power to change their SharePoint account passwords through SharePoint. No
need to build a separate Web application to complete a simple, but essential security task. With the Bamboo Password Change Web Part, users can
change their password on-demand and still comply with the defined password policy.
As SharePoint adoption within the company continues to grow, the audience
to whom SharePoint caters expands from a single department of internal employees to corporation-wide,
and even includes outside contractors. With any account, there are times when users need to change their password, whether their password is about to expire, they have forgotten it, or
just because they want to use a more familiar combination.
Unfortunately, SharePoint does not provide this capability out-of-the-box. Yes, it is true that your on-site employees can use their Windows machine connected to the domain to change
their password, but what about your external employees and contractors? That is where Password Change Web Part comes in. After a quick Wizard-based installation, simply add the Bamboo
Password Change Web Part to the page, and it is immediately ready to go!
Password Change Web Part is just part of a larger story, a true password management solution
called Password Management Toolkit. With a complete password management solution, corporations can add another essential
layer of security to their growing and often confidential SharePoint environments by allowing IT
administrators to enforce a full-fledged password policy, including routine password expiration
without the fear of overhead costs to maintain. With the Bamboo Password Management Toolkit,
you not only get Bamboo's top-selling administrator products: Password Change Web Part,
Password Expiration Web Part, Password Reset Web Part, and
User Account Setup Web Part at a 30% discount, but also Premium Annual Support, giving you additional
access to world-class Bamboo support and free major upgrades for all four included products.
