User password security

Protecting your organization from cybercriminals is fundamental to your IT security and starts with strengthening the weakest link – passwords. We protect your critical data by identifying weak passwords and securing user authentication to spot risks at scale. Our Specops password security solutions are fully integrated with Active Directory, ensuring all sensitive data is protected within your secure network perimeter.

The weak password report 2022

Passwords are vulnerable to attack and pose a big threat to your overall cyber hygiene. What specifically makes them vulnerable? Our Weak Password Whitepaper examines both the human and the tech aspects of why weak passwords can have a negative impact on your organization’s network. 

Download our whitepaper for the latest trends and insights into just how vulnerable passwords truly are and how you can reduce risk of data breach. 

Secure user passwords at speed and scale

Your employees are likely using compromised passwords within your organization, leaving you open to cyber attacks. Identify and block compromised passwords in use with your organization with ease for complete visibility of risk, compliance and data protection. 

Security controls are key when evaluating a self-service password reset tool. When a user can’t remember their password, they must establish their identity with authentication to protect your business against data theft. 


Stop the ripple effect of weak passwords in your organization by blocking vulnerable passwords at source. Active Directory checks for breached passwords commonly used by hackers so you can stay one step ahead.  

Reduce risk of compromised passwords

Password auditing

Comprehensive password security is more important than ever. Our password audit tool scans your Active Directory and identifies password-related vulnerabilities. The collected information generates multiple interactive reports containing user and password policy information. Specops Password Auditor is a read-only program, and available for FREE download. 

Password policy and compliance

Get serious about password security. Enforce compliance requirements, block compromised passwords, and help users create stronger passwords in Active Directory with dynamic, informative client feedback. Specops Password Policy extends the functionality of Group Policy, and simplifies the management of fine-grained password policies. The solution can target any GPO level, group, user, or computer with dictionary and passphrase settings.

Self-service password management

Our enterprise self-service password reset software allows organizations to eliminate password reset calls to the IT service desk. The solution enables users to securely reset their Active Directory passwords, from anywhere, using any device. End-users can initiate the password reset process from any browser, their mobile device, or right from the Windows logon screen on their workstations. With security features like multi-factor authentication, and geo-blocking, our password reset solution is consistent with the high level of security you expect. Available on-premises, or as a hybrid solution. 

Secure user verification

Password reset tickets at the service desk are a great vulnerability for hackers to exploit. In the absence of a self-service password reset solution to direct users to, it is up to the service desk agent to verify that the caller is the owner of the account before issuing a new password. Secure Service Desk is a tool that enables organizations to enforce secure user verification at the service desk. Use the tool to reduce your social engineering vulnerability, and support your greater IT security infrastructure.   

Quickly reset insecure passwords after ransomware attack

When a group of hackers used weak passwords to carry out a ransomware attack on the municipality of Kalix in Sweden, the municipality worked with IT consultants and security experts to complete system upgrades.
