Regulate password complexity
Take control of your password complexity rules
How complex is too complex… or too simple when it comes to password complexity rules?
Complex passwords provide a greater level of security for user data, but just how complex is too complex or too simple? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could regulate the levels of complexity rather than being forced to follow someone else’s policies? Password Complexity Manager (PCM) is a complete, user-friendly alternative to Microsoft’s Fine Grained Password Policies. PCM puts you in the driver’s seat with a flexible solution to create and manage the rules you choose to implement for password complexity.
Follow your own rules for regulating password complexity
The stronger the password, the greater the security. However, the Microsoft standard options for setting password complexity rules are often insufficient. PCM allows you to broaden the password complexity rules according to your unique security requirements. For instance, you can set different levels of complexity for various user groups, prohibit certain types of passwords, or prevent the use of sequences e.g. 1; 2; 3; Jan; Feb; Mar. It’s easy to configure and provides end users with an overview of complexity rules that have and have not been met during the password reset process.Read more show less
Minimize end user disruption while maximizing IT support team productivity. Sound too good to be true?
Complex passwords are great…for everyone except your over worked support team who get all of the emails and phone calls from end users whose pattern isn’t matching the rules for whatever reason or who’ve forgotten their new, complex passwords, right? It’s a given that when you introduce password complexity into your network, end users are going to have greater difficulty remembering, modifying, and entering these new, complex passwords. The good news is that PCM offers a customized interface to minimize disruption and maximize end user convenience for changing passwords. During the process, end users see a simple pop-up message displaying a step-by-step overview of complexity rules that have and have not been met as they go, so your end users know, for example, that an uppercase letter, number and symbol are required as they enter the data.
For even greater convenience, PCM can be integrated with Self Service Reset Password Manager (SSRPM) to allow end users to reset their own password if they happen to forget it so you can easily implement secure, complex passwords without causing added strain on your already taxed support teams.
Fully compliant, integrated password complexity management
PCM gives you the power to meet all HIPAA and SOX requirements.
Integration with the password reset screen provides end users with immediate feedback into the complexity rules that have and have not been met as they are creating their complex passwords.
