Launch of the EPAS Password Quality Enforcer

EPAS Enforcer is a password quality enforcement component, provided as a licensed feature of EPAS. EPAS Enforcer for A/D integrates as an LSA filter on the Windows Active Directory domain controllers and ensures that passwords meet defined security requirements when set or changed, in line with a centralized policy mandated by the risk category of the information they protect. The new password is tested against the EPAS evaluation criteria and is accepted or rejected, depending on the defined security requirements. This means that formerly permitted passwords like “Password123” or “Secret!” are not accepted any longer by the computer.
