Get password reports

Analyze your domain password policies, and fine-grained password policies, to see if they enable users to create secure passwords. Generate reports to identify accounts with password vulnerabilities, including expired passwords, identical passwords, blank passwords, and more. In addition to these insights, Specops Password Auditor allows you to measure the effectiveness of your policies against a brute-force attack. For a complete list of the password reports, see the product overview.

Audit Active Directory accounts

With many breaches resulting from compromised passwords, accounts using leaked passwords are an entry point for attackers. Our password audit tool scans and checks passwords of the user accounts against a list of vulnerable passwords obtained from multiple data breach leaks. It also provides a full view of the administrator accounts in an organization’s domain, including stale/inactive admin accounts. From a single view, you can identify vulnerabilities that can assist you with your security plan.

Are your password policies enabling poor practice? Specops Password Auditor generates comparison reports of the password settings in your organization, with industry standards and compliance standards from NIST, PCI, Microsoft, and SANS.
