What is a password audit?
A password audit is conducted to test the strength of user passwords in your organisation. Whilst corporate policy plays a part in strengthening user passwords, such as enforcing password parameters, many users still end up with insecure passwords. An example is using a base word and ending up with a password that is easy to crack, for example Password123!. Password security is a paramount step in Breach Preparedness and a password audit plays an important role in network security.

How does a password audit work?
Our password audit can be conducted as a stand-alone service or as part of a broader audit such as Penetration Testing where we will test your network security and then seek to crack user passwords. In a stand-alone password audit your organisation will grant our team network access then they will extract the hashes from your systems and use the password audit tool to crack them. In most cases where password security is an issue, we are able to crack over 90% of passwords within one day. Once the audit is complete you will receive a report with the results of the audit and recommendations for your organisation such as password security tips.
