Choosing the right password manager platform is critical. We want you to have the best information possible to do so. This page compares our MyPass Cloud solution to a top-rated password manager platform.


There are many password manager options on the market. In this section we’re looking at how MyPass Cloud and ManageEngine ADSelfService Plus match up & how these services are aimed at two different markets. Both platforms provide multiple features such as self-service password reset, MFA logons, password configuration and more. However, the differences start to emerge when you look at the goal of each service as a whole. Being fit for purpose is important to us and we want you to know why MyPass Cloud is for you. So, let’s first start off discussing ManageEngine’s ADSelfService Plus.

ManageEngine ADSelfService Plus is perfect for customers looking for a compelling package providing a wide variety of different password features. Some of these features are discussed in more detail below, but that’s not the focus for now. An All-in-one password bundle is what makes ManageEngine a great service to small/medium companies with many password issues.

MyPass Cloud is perfect for medium to large sized companies that experience 2-3 big issues in the following areas; Governance, compliance & security. One of MyPass’ newly added features, Identity Verification Manager compliments these aspect so well, due to a big increase in vishing and phishing in recent years. It is also important to note that MyPass customers are primarily on-premise AD users and not cloud native users.

This page will help you understand the differences between MyPass Cloud and ManageEngine Self-Service PM , so you can choose the right platform for your needs.
