Since passwords are the primary authentication method in Active Directory, strong password policies are essential for securing access. Specops Password Policy, enforces password complexity rules defined by your organization.
A significant limitation with standard password functionality is that only a single complexity rule can be applied across the entire domain, affecting all user accounts in the same way independent of their security risk factor. Specops Password Policy overcomes this restriction by allowing you to specify multiple password policies based on rules you define. It is based on Group Policy technology, and can be configured in any number of group policies within the Active Directory.
