Pre-Boot Network Authentication

Being an IT administrator can be very challanging, with many responsibilities ranging from making sure every employee has the proper working tools required to do their jobs to keeping corporate data safe. Some of the simplest tasks faced by IT Admins, such as password resets, can be very time consuming. In fact, IT Pros can spend as much as 20 minutes on a single employee password reset process. Depending on the size of the organization, that can add up over the course of a year.

Many organizations are now recognizing the benefits of Pre-Boot Network Authentication (PBNA) to help solve common IT headaches such as expensive and time consuming policies on employee password resets. Traditionally seen as a solution to only help enhance data security in an organization, IT Admins are now seeing the additional benefits of PBNA that were not explored before. Although a unique soluiton that is not offered by many data security vendors today, IT Admins who have experienced this solution in action have reported huge benefits not only on enhacing the security of their data but also on IT cost savings.

PBNA is able to alleviate a lot of IT Admin’s tasks by shortening the time required to for example, reset passwords through the use of Active Directory (AD).  , A support issue that use to take an average of 20 minutes can now be solved in as little as 5 minutes, without the IT Admin even having to leave their own desk.  This is a huge cost savings for IT departments as the process is now simplified, freeing up IT Admin’s time to perform other imporatn tasks.  It also increaes employee productivity as they do not have to waste time waiting for their password to be rest, allowing them to return to their jobs faster.  Click here for the Ponemon Study which details how much time empoyees and organizations lose as a result of forgotten passwords.
