Excellent Password Auditor Software

It is has been fantastic from our initial and on-going conversations with the Account Manager and with their Technical department. They respond quickly and make themselves readily available for consultations and on-call meetings.

PROS

I love the fact that Password Auditor can compare up to date hashes with those already stored on a customers Active Directory. A number of reports including an executive summary can be easily created. The product has a plethora of features including: - Checks for known weak passwords - Identifies password vulnerabilities such as compromised passwords and those users too - Checks which users haven’t changed their passwords since a certain date - Identifies where passwords are not required - Identifies expired passwords - Identifies existing password policies - Displays password policy usage - Clearly highlights password policy compliance - Will only read information from Active Directory - Does not store Active Directory Data nor does it allow changes to company’s AD

CONS

There really was nothing to dislike. Everything in terms of our communication with them has been positive.

Reason for choosing Specops Password Auditor

Specops ticked all the boxes and met all our criteria. The Password Auditor was free and there was no compulsion to purchase further products. The service was exemplary and continues to be.

easy to use freeware tool

It was easy to install, configure and use the product and the vendor provided good documentation - very positive experience.

PROS

This is probably one of the best freeware tools available to review password policies,, compare and benchmark with others as well be able to audit the administration of password policy. It also helps generate reports that show weak passwords that are vulnerable as well as expired passwords and enhance password security.

CONS

The tool fulfills its functionality and hence there is really nothing that I really would like to call out as missing or poorly done. The one suggestion that I have though is to include underlying details to the summary information on the dashboard.

Reason for choosing Specops Password Auditor

It was a freeware tool that was serving the purpose of administering password policy whilee providing good reporting capability.

Simple and straight forward

Would recommend to any org trying to block users from using inappropriate passwords.

PROS

Documentation was good. Updates are dynamic, so no need to babysit the app. Really like that you can create custom black lists to prevent users from using words that AD or Google allow.

CONS

Nothing, it works as expected. We had to get some clarity on policies to meet our needs, but that was a simple email with support.
