- Specops Password Management products receive 5 out of 5 product review rating and Gold award from WindowSecurity.com
- Both Specops uReset and Specops Password Policy are proven to excel in ease of use and capability depth
WindowSecurity.com recently published product reviews for Specops Password Policy and Specops uReset, Group Policy based password management products that natively integrate with Windows Active Directory to seamlessly address password security and usability challenges.
Richard Hicks, Enterprise Security, MVP tested both solutions to rate them in the following areas: ease of installation, interface intuitiveness, capability depth and documentation clarity and effectiveness. Based on testing results, both products were awarded a Gold award receiving a 5 out of 5 rating.
“Password security should be looked at holistically,” says Marcus Kaber, CEO of Specops Software. “Addressing weak passwords with a robust password policy solution should be a central part of an organization’s IT security strategy. However you need to provide end users a secure way to manage their password resets themselves.”
Specops Password Policy addresses password complexity requirements. Richard Hicks wrote in the review: “Specops Password Policy is an essential tool that can be leveraged by organizations large and small to greatly improve their overall security posture by granularly enforcing password policies across the enterprise.”
Specops uReset, is a Web-based self-service password reset tool that addresses weak authentication. Richard Hicks wrote: “Specops uReset enforces strong, multifactor authentication to ensure that users are indeed who they claim to be when requesting password resets.”
“The WindowSecurity.com Gold awards for two of our password management products is further proof of our core value at Specops Software,” Kaber says. We believe in creating simple, yet powerful, solutions that seamlessly work together with existing assets in order to make the day-to-day lives easier for IT pros and the end users they serve.“
Group Policy based products ensure that there is little to no learning curve when getting started. Both Specops Password Policy and Specops uReset are praised in the reviews for simple installation and ease of use when configuring password complexity requirements or multiple third-party identity providers.
