Password Complexity Manager (PCM)
enforce any complexity ruleThe stronger the password, the better the security. The standard abilities that Microsoft Active Directory offers to regulate the strength and complexity of passwords are often insufficient. With Password Complexity Manager (PCM) from Tools4ever, it is possible to enforce virtually any password complexity rule.
- Password Synchronization
- Native Integration with Windows
- Complexity per domain and OU
- All conceivable combinations available
- Notification and immediate feedback
PCM by Tools4ever is a user-friendly and complete alternative to the limitations inherent with Microsoft for setting and using password complexity.
Need more password policies for domain user accounts?
With the introduction of Windows Server 2008 R2, Microsoft added more options for regulating the complexity of passwords. The most notable expansion is the ability to set passwords at the organizational unit (OU) level with the introduction of Fine Grained Password Policies.
Fine Grained Password Policies can be difficult to configure since the complexity rules are valid at various levels (domain, user, groups and OU). The rules might also be complementary, or overwrite each other in accordance with specific priority. Among other things, Fine Grained Password Policies also lack the user-friendly notification for the end-user as to whether the newly chosen password fulfills the complexity rules or not.
PCM by Tools4ever is a user-friendly and complete alternative to the limitations inherent with Microsoft in setting and using password complexity. PCM offers a variety of options to achieve a user-friendly, consistent and reliable configuration. These options are:
- Management interface in which the complexity rules can be set easily by the administrator.
- Advanced simulation mode in which the configuration can be checked per user.
- Immediate feedback to the end-user if new password complies with the rules.
