Block weak passwords
Need a comprehensive list of vulnerable passwords to prevent dictionary attacks? Our password policy tool gives you many options. You can use a password dictionary, a file containing commonly used and/or compromised passwords, to prevent users from creating passwords susceptible to dictionary attacks. During a password change in Active Directory, the password check rejects any passwords found in the dictionary. Create a custom dictionary containing potential passwords relevant to your organization, including company name, location, services, and relevant acronyms.
With the Breached Password Protection add-on, you can even block the use of more than 3 billion compromised passwords including those found on known breached lists as well as passwords being used in attacks happening right now.
Create compliant password policies
Simplify passwords for users and place the burden on authentication systems. It has never been easier to comply with regulatory password recommendations from NIST, CJIS, NCSC, ANSSI, CNIL, BSI, HITRUST, PCI and more. With compliance driven templates, and a reporting tool to ensure they match or exceed regulatory standards, Specops Password Policy makes compliance a breeze.Read More
Do you know how your existing password policies compare to best practices? For each password policy, you can drill down and see how the settings compare to various industry standards. Measuring your policies against industry recommendations can help safeguard your organization against common password-related attacks, including brute-force, rainbow table, and dictionary attacks.
Target password entropy
Specops Password Policy enforces password length and complexity while blocking common character types at the beginning/end of passwords, as well as consecutively repeated characters. To help users create stronger passwords they can actually remember, the solution also supports passphrases.Read More
Password attacks work because users are predictable. When asked to create a complex password, users follow familiar patterns. This means starting with a common word, followed by a number and/or special character. The length of the password is an effective defense. Passphrases, a combination of words that are meaningless together, are easier to remember and harder to crack.
