ORLANDO, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 06/11/12 -- Microsoft TechEd North America - Specops Software, a global innovation leader in desktop management and password management software, today announced the launch of Specops Password Sync and the Specops Password Suite. Specops Password Sync is a new offering that enables users to create a unified password policy for all connected business systems, while Specops Password Suite, a finalist for the "Best of TechEd 2012" award, combines all of Specops' password products into one comprehensive package.
"Most users reset their passwords at regular intervals in accordance with Windows' password policy requirements. The password security requirements in other systems and cloud services may be less stringent and pose a potential risk by making it easier for hackers to access the information stored within them," said Thorbjörn Sjövold, CTO of Specops Software. "With Specops Password Sync, organizations can create one unified password policy which will minimize the risk associated with users writing down their passwords in order to remember them, and enhance overall security."
Specops Password Sync captures and synchronizes all changes to a user's password in Active Directory at the moment they occur, in accordance with synchronization rules defined in Group Policy by the Administrator. When combined with a strong password policy in Windows, or an enhanced password policy with Specops Password Policy, a unified password policy is created for all connected business systems.
Specops Password Suite is a complete package of all three Specops security offerings: Specops Password Policy, Specops Password Sync and Specops Password Reset. Within the suite, Specops has added new functionality to help organizations to become compliant with the National Institute of Science and Technology's (NIST) password guidelines.
"By launching Specops Password Sync and offering the full suite, we have made it possible to increase password security while at the same time reducing the cost of password management, both within an organization's own data center and the cloud-based systems where these functions are currently non-native," continued Sjövold.
Specops Password Suite offers a comprehensive solution for password management in all Windows environments by including:
