Specops introduces real-time password blacklisting
(Last updated on February 17, 2020)
Stockholm, Sweden – November 14, 2018. Specops Software announced today the release of Specops uReset 8.0. With this major release, organizations can benefit from a best of breed password reset solution that provides real-time password blacklist feedback during end-user password reset or change.
Specops uReset allows users to address the most common tasks related to password management, once they have confirmed their identity with dynamic multi-factor authentication (MFA). Compatibility with the Specops Password Blacklist service enables users to receive real-time feedback when a new password appears in the password blacklist. This removes user confusion when a password change fails.
“Password and end-user authentication is not only a vulnerability, but also a cost driver for any organization,” said Lori Österholm, CTO at Specops Software. “Specops uReset reduces password reset related calls to the helpdesk, enhances password security with MFA, and reduces end-user frustrations with real-time password blacklist validation.”
The solution supports more than 15 identity providers for MFA, including out-of-the-box support for various authenticator apps, and third-party authentication services. With the new release, IT departments can extend uReset MFA to achieve high-trust authentication in O365.
The latest release of Specops uReset also introduces Efos support for SITHS cards in Sweden and enhances language support with the addition of Japanese, Portuguese, and Simplified Chinese in the user interface. Failover capability is also added to ensure you are always up and running.
