Practically all SSPR solutions support AD passwords and have a basic functionality which can satisfy many small or uncomplicated situations. This guide is not intended for this segment.
This guide is intended for organizations with some complexity which often also means many users. If you have a complex organization, you want the SSPR solution to be functionally rich and flexible. Flexible because complex organizations often improve with new technology and solutions, and you must be sure that your SSPR solution will adapt to your new situation.
As an example: Today you use Smartcard for MFA but have decided to go to OKTA authentication within the next 6-12 months. Your SSPR solution must then be able to support user verification with Smartcard and with OKTA at the same time. This requires a configurational flexibility, which is not present for many solutions.
In this guide you will find an overview of criteria sorted according to the generic importance.
Example: If you have SAP passwords in addition to AD passwords you MUST have SAP password reset or you will lose an important part of the business case!
