Active Directory Password Management Tool Needed


We're in the market for a password management utility that would function with Active Directory and LDAP that would allow a user to securely reset or change their password without helpdesk intervention, etc.   It would need to have some sort of mechanism for authentication - security questions, two-step verification, etc. - and various rules for setting new passwords.  We have our eye on one product but would like recommendations from anyone who has experience with a third-party utility that they've been satisfied with.  It would presumably need to be some sort of web-based interface.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I've used nervepoint in a previous environment which worked well.
Linux VM with web interface, allowed for self service, security questions and could even integrate into the Windows Logon (at least for windows 7 haven't checked if it does win10)

its now rebranded

Manage Engine is another, but i used/seen it used for Privilege escalation management rather than user password management but its a very good tool

These Anixis people are good, we use their password policy enforcer, but I guess their reset tool is as good:

Check the articles of Shaun Vermaak (EE-member). He coded one that you can use. Didn't test it, though.
