Password policy enforcer

Active Directory Password Policy Enforcer

Passwords are the most common authentication method for gaining access to enterprise resources. So, it's not surprising that most of the cyberattacks are focused on compromising the passwords. Users do not realize the huge risk they pose to their personal data and the entire organization's data by not taking passwords seriously. They tend to lean towards easy-to-remember passwords over strong, secure ones. As a result, the responsibility of ensuring strong passwords within the organizations falls to IT admins.

Active Directory (AD) password policy

AD offers some customizable password settings to ensure strong passwords. These include:

  • Minimum password length
  • Maximum password age
  • Minimum password age
  • Password history enforcement
  • Password complexity requirements
  • Reversible encryption for storing passwords

While this is better than having no password policy, this is not enough to thwart the sophisticated cyberattacks engineered today. A more granular and flexible password policy that provides all the minute details is recommended and required to combat various password attacks.

Why do you need password policy enforcement?

  • Avoid common, easy-to-guess passwords.
  • Ensure passwords involved in previous breaches are not used.
  • Enforce sensible password complexity rules.
