The importance of using strong passwords for users’ end-point systems is critical to ensure the very survival of your organization as they could be easy gateways to access your organization’s mission critical data. Using strong passwords more of than not slows down, and even defeats the various attacks on users’ systems. For this very reason, IT administrators all around the globe continue to impress upon users the need for a strong password that contains a healthy mix of upper and lower case letters, numbers, and special characters, based on their organization’s unique demands and protocols. More often than not, users resort to passwords that are simple and easy to remember, without considering the implications it might have on the organization. It is not possible for administrators to manually verify the strength of the password of each user in the domain.
The ideal solution to this problem is to use a tool that can scan the entire domain and identify users whose passwords are vulnerable, and can easily be cracked by hackers.
