It is has been fantastic from our initial and on-going conversations with the Account Manager and with their Technical department. They respond quickly and make themselves readily available for consultations and on-call meetings.

Pros

I love the fact that Password Auditor can compare up to date hashes with those already stored on a customers Active Directory. A number of reports including an executive summary can be easily created.

The product has a plethora of features including:

- Checks for known weak passwords
- Identifies password vulnerabilities such as compromised passwords and those users too
- Checks which users haven’t changed their passwords since a certain date
- Identifies where passwords are not required
- Identifies expired passwords
- Identifies existing password policies
- Displays password policy usage
- Clearly highlights password policy compliance
- Will only read information from Active Directory
- Does not store Active Directory Data nor does it allow changes to company’s AD

Cons

There really was nothing to dislike. Everything in terms of our communication with them has been positive.

The specops Has been great and their service is good and the password are one of the biggest day to day things which all admin dread having to reset specially after long weekend or after users gets back from vacation and forgets all the time ,

Pros

Cons

I have to say I have had any issues so far and I’m pretty luck not have had any major issues

Specops Password Auditor provides a quick an easy method to get a view of how your organization is complying with company password policy. The drill downs allow me to view the information that is most important.

Pros

The scan is very quick and easy to read the results. Provides me a quick way to see how we are doing at complying with our password policy.

Cons

Would like to view the consoles remotely via web browser.

Specops Password Auditor helps me a lot to keep my network safer, and fix possible vulnerabilities such as weak passwords, stale users...

Pros

Specops Password Auditor is a must. Just deploy on your domain controller and download the database (it will take some time and create many files, so choose an empty directory as destination). Then the program will check all the domain user/administrators status, I mean not only if the password can be easily breached, but also if there are identical passwords, no password set, aged passwords, users that have no activity for a long time... and then you can download the lists in excel format or create a pdf. I highly recommend this program, you should run it regularly.

Cons

The download of the database can take several minutes and create a lot of files

It was easy to install, configure and use the product and the vendor provided good documentation - very positive experience.

Pros

This is probably one of the best freeware tools available to review password policies,, compare and benchmark with others as well be able to audit the administration of password policy. It also helps generate reports that show weak passwords that are vulnerable as well as expired passwords and enhance password security.

Cons

The tool fulfills its functionality and hence there is really nothing that I really would like to call out as missing or poorly done. The one suggestion that I have though is to include underlying details to the summary information on the dashboard.
