When speaking with customers about their security goals, they usually tell us they know what they know but there are still some concerns about users and their password practices.
This is a valid concern. Passwords set by humans tend to be the most vulnerable to password related attacks. Although IT Admins enforce password policy through Active Directory, users can still use big passwords to meet their password policy.
In this scenario, you can take advantage of our Active Directory Weak Password Finder. It’s a quick scan that connects with Active Directory to retrieve a password table and analyze the passwords against failure types.
These types can include common dictionary, passwords used against multiple accounts, or passwords encrypted using reversible encryption, or a legacy algorithm.
Once the scan is complete you can take this report and work on the vulnerabilities pinpointed with their respective teammates, and perform the necessary security updates to minimize the risk of potential password related attacks.
If you haven’t done so, check out our Weak Password Finder:
