Avatier: Enterprise Password Management Software Can Help Deter Hackers

May 16, 2013

Latest Avatier blog suggests automated password reset capabilities may reduce the risk of breaches.

San Ramon, Calif. (PRWEB) May 16, 2013

Avatier Corp., a leader in risk-driven identity management software, recommends organizations look to password management software that incorporates automation to help prevent breaches in its blog, “Hack-Proof Your Network by Rethinking Enterprise Password Management.”

“Studies show that users historically use the same passwords to access a variety of accounts – for both personal and business, mobile and PC – which makes it easy for hackers to infiltrate any organization’s network,” said Nelson Cicchitto, chairman and CEO, Avatier. “The answer is to proactively manage this risk by using a password management system that can automatically track and control passwords on a granular level and modify and delete user accounts at will.”

Automation emerges as a key capability to help administrators act quickly in mitigating any malicious activity stemming from password breaches. For example, password management software that offers an automated password reset tool can provide the reset password Active Directory audit controls needed to prevent weak passwords. It can also help them push through critical policy revisions throughout the system, including the cloud, for extra fortification against risk. Given that nine out of 10 passwords are susceptible to breach and most users reuse their passwords for multiple accounts and networks, it’s important for every organization to have in place an enterprise password manager that incorporates automation.
