Enforce Stronger Password Security Policies

Strengthen Enterprise Password Security with SpyCloud

Enterprise security leaders cannot rely on employees to practice good password hygiene, nor can they depend on partial solutions that discover only a handful of password exposures too late to do much about them. Leaders must combine password policy best practices with technology custom-built to detect compromised employee accounts early in the attack timeline to proactively prevent account takeover.

With SpyCloud, you can protect employees’ accounts despite their bad password hygiene. SpyCloud helps enterprises enforce password security and prevent account takeover by checking employee credentials against the largest repository of recovered breach assets in the world, enabling security teams to detect and reset exposed passwords proactively.

Enforce Password Security Policies Automatically

Security leaders often establish password security policies but have no way to enforce them. With SpyCloud, you can align enforce good behavior with automated password resets for weak or compromised passwords.

With Active Directory Guardian, you can automatically compare your employees’ Active Directory passwords to stolen credentials in the SpyCloud database or passwords you choose to ban using scheduled scans. If a match is found, the system will lock the account and force the employee to reset their password.

Align with NIST Password Security Guidelines

A password policy best practice is to follow the latest NIST password guidelines, which call for enterprises to check for “commonly-used, expected, or compromised” passwords that make account takeover easy for criminals.

Security leaders can enforce NIST guidelines using the built-in controls in SpyCloud Active Directory Guardian to prevent users from creating passwords NIST considers weak or compromised, as well as to identify and reset newly-compromised passwords as they are exposed in fresh breaches. Active Directory Guardian checks AD passwords against billions of recovered credentials in the SpyCloud database to help security teams prevent risky passwords that would be impossible to detect otherwise, such as compromised passwords an employee has previously used in combination with their personal email address.
