Microsoft nowadays offers a free Local Admin Password Solution to randomize the passwords on computers and save them to Active Directory. So why am I still selling my Adminizer and even more important why do people still keep buying it?
Here’s a short list of why:
- Adminizer not only randomizes your local passwords but makes them onetime as well. LAPS only randomizes the passwords. Half the security and no way to give temporary access.
- Adminizer works without Active Directory so Workgroups, BYOD, CYOD, Azure AD joined Windows 10 etc. are easy to manage as well. LAPS requires AD.
- Adminizer works totally offline. LAPS will not change the password of a computer if it can’t reach AD or GPO’s don’t work for some reason.
Of course you should test both so here are the required links:
Hi Sami, great tool. Is it possible to use it enterprise wide like: find all local accounts, randomize passwords and store them in a safe way?ReplyDelete
I am just curious because I tend to work with systems like secretserver from Thycotic, but I'll give Adminizer a try :-)
Thanks for sharing!
Both tools, LAPS and my Adminizer, only take care of one local account.
