Simplify NIST Password Guidelines with SpyCloud Active Directory Guardian
To help organizations mitigate the risk posed by users’ bad password habits, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) designed a set of password guidelines with human behavior in mind. While most of NIST’s password guidelines can be enforced directly within directory services like Active Directory, there’s a critical exception: banning “commonly-used, expected, or compromised” passwords. Unfortunately, new breaches happen constantly, which creates a challenge for organizations.
SpyCloud simplifies NIST password guidelines by enabling you to check your employee passwords against the largest database of stolen credentials in the world. With SpyCloud Active Directory Guardian, you can identify and reset breached Active Directory passwords automatically, dramatically reducing the time, cost, and resources required to align with NIST guidelines.
Read this solution brief to understand the benefits of using SpyCloud to align with NIST password guidelines:
- Reduce your team’s workload with “set it and forget it” automation
- Stay ahead of criminals with early access to breach data
- Protect your organization from Account Takeover (ATO) attacks
- Identify employee password reuse across work and personal accounts
- Ban common or expected passwords that can put your organization at risk
