Providing a secure biometric backed method for password reset which does not require staff intervention, reduces pressure on the IT department and removes any stigma attached to forgetting a password.
Password Manager eliminates the burden of requesting replacement passwords or PINs. Any user who is registered in BioStore’s IDManager via biometrics, smart card or PIN, and who forgets a password, can approach one of the Password Manager devices.
Remove IT staff involvement for password reset or recovery
BioStore’s Password Manager allocates an easily memorable word, displaying it on the screen and requiring the user to augment this with a PIN of their choosing. The resulting temporary password allows the user to log onto the network, at which point they will be required to reset their password. Secure password policies are always upheld.
Each device has a biometric reader, card scanner and keypad built in so that the user can identify themselves using their BioStore credentials.
Strategic placement of a few Password Manager devices removes the need for additional card or biometric readers on every machine.
As staff have already been enrolled, BioStore’s central identity management solution ensures the integrity of staff data.
Each Password Manager device is connected to BioStore’s IDManager via the network, and can be installed at any location where a network connection is available.

“The Password Managers are one of the best purchases I’ve made and have reduced technician workload significantly. I have had nothing but positive feedback from the rest of the school about them.”
