Windows -> Start -> Administrative Tools -> Active Directory Users and Computers

All computers on the local network that have been joined to the local domain use the Active Directory User library. Instead of setting up user accounts on each computer, a central database is used to store logon names and passwords. (Generally) Kerberos is used to encrypt and exchange with handshake user logon name and password information. (Windows Professional required for workstations)

Jumpcloud

Install the jumpcloud client on all computers managed by the Jumpcloud database. (Generally) TLS1.1 is used for logon name and password information. First 10 users are free, then $7.50 per user per month.

15 users – 5*7.5*12*.75 = $ 1.875 per user per month paid annual

25 users – 15*7.5*12*.75 = $ 3.375 per user per month paid annual

50 users – $4.50 per user per month paid annual ($ 2,700 annual)
