Specops Password Policy has improved our Password security immeasurably.

The product has been really good. The support we receive is first glass and any issues are dealt with promptly.

Pros

When I started at Parkinson's UK there was a real issue with users selecting easy-to-guess passwords. SpecOps password policy gave us an easy way to fix this by allowing us to create length-based password ageing policies and custom password blacklists. At the time, there was very little else on the market that could do this.

Cons

There's not really much to dislike, to be honest. It's fairly simple.

We wanted a password management system that was more flexible than the built in AD password features. SpecOps has provided that flexibility. Also the breech password checking and reporting is a great feature and the main reason we brought the product

Pros

The product interface is very easy to use. The functions are logically grouped. The wizard like interface makes setting policies simple.
The checking of breeched passwords is a very important feature.

Cons

The help is inadequate. I'd like a much fuller explanation of the features and how to use them.

Fine grain password control

Reviewed on 28/6/2022

Pros

The ability to control user passwords so granularly. Also easy to install and use for majority of sysadmin.

Length based password control is also a fantastic incentive for staff. They benefit from longer password expiry, whereas we in IT can rest assured that the password is lovely and long.

Cons

Nothing to dislike really. The software is cheap, and does exactly what it set out to do.

LA meilleure sécurisation du SI !

La politique de sécurité du SI précédente ne permettait une expiration de mot de passe que d'un mois : Mot de passe de 14 caractères minimum (restriction Microsoft) avec 3 types de caractères différents. Avec Specops, nous pouvons augmenter l'expiration du mot de passe en fonction de sa complexité. Les utilisateurs peuvent choisir d'opter pour un mot de passe complexe ou une phrase secrète. Au cas où le mot de passe est présent dans les bases "breached password", impossibilité pour l'utilisateur de le choisir. Couplé à uReset, les outils Specops sont un plus en terme de sécurité du SI

Pros

Les possibilités suivantes :
- Expiration variable en fonction de la complexité du mot de passe
- Avertissement de l'utilisateur en cas d'utilisation de mot de passe divulgué sur le Net
- Phrase secrète (plusieurs mots d'un nombre de caractères minimum séparés par des espaces)
- Multiples politiques de mot de passe paramétrables

Cons

- Absence de la langue française dans la console d'administration.
