Can MDE be integrated with active directory


I would like to know if MDE can be integrated with Active Directory i.e. currently the policy is set to enable SSO, ensure encryption password matches the windows password.

Now the use case is; a user comes into the office and forgets his encryption password(the encryption password was same as the windows logon password). If the IT Admin resets the windows password, then is it possible for the encryption password to be reset as well to the new password which the IT Admin just set it to? Please note while the IT Admin resets the windows account password, the client machine is in the PreBoot Screen.

Re: Can MDE be integrated with active directory

Hi @Jmec ,

Thank you for writing in here.

The answer is No! MDE cannot sync the password which was reset in AD in the MDE PBA login screen.


Kindly let us know if you have further questions in here.


Thank you.
