SAN RAMON, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/16/13 -- Avatier Corp., a leading identity and access risk management solutions provider, takes a closer look at password reset software, and suggests requiring more complicated passwords for the office is a double-edged sword in "Making the Case for Password Reset Software: The 25 World's Worst Passwords."
"Easily remembered passwords can also be the weakest, inviting hackers and generally compromising the security of an organization's network," said Nelson Cicchitto, chairman and CEO, Avatier. "However, while they will ensure a higher level of security, complicated passwords also require greater help desk intervention, mostly associated with password resets or unlocking accounts due to forgotten passwords."
Solutions for enterprise password management that include self-service password reset emerge as the best answer to this challenge, according to Cicchitto, and, in practice, go way beyond simply lightening the workload for help desk personnel. Indeed, additional benefits of this software include improved security, consistently protected networks, increased rapid ROI, reduced TCO and much, much more.
