Server-to-Server Password Synchronizer provides cross-platform password synchronization. It ensures that when a password is changed in one domain the change is automatically replicated throughout the enterprise, preventing users from losing access to critical systems.
When managing passwords in large Windows environments, core accounts must remain available across domains, at all times. Once a password is changed in one domain or system, the update must be automatically replicated to other domains and systems on the network. Otherwise, users can be locked out of accounts and lose access to critical systems.
With Server-to-Server Password Synchronizer you can keep your organization's passwords in sync between any combination of Windows NT/2000/XP/Server 2003/Vista/Server2008, as well as IBM OS/2 and LAN Server. It contacts client systems holding account credentials, determines which credentials are out of date, and updates them automatically.
Other key features include:
Supports Hosts that are Not Domain Joined
Synchronize account passwords across multiple systems that are not in the same domain, in domains that are not trusted, or hosts that aren’t domain joined at all. This makes the product ideal for special role machines, such as kiosks, and machines located in DMZs.
Definable Password Update Strategies
All the hosts that are included in password synchronization can be a read-only target, a write-only target or a read-write target. This allows fine control over where password updates can be initialized. For example, machines placed in a DMZ can be set to read-only, so no password changes can be propagated from them.
Automatic Account Creation
Create new user accounts on a host in a synchronization group to match the passwords that are being synchronized. Using Server-to-Server Password Synchronizer, you can create new accounts on one machine and have them automatically replicated on several other machines. This is ideal for systems such as kiosks that may be spread around your environment.
