How to protect your business with secure passwords

Secure Password Rules

Strengthen Security with Intelligent Password Creation Rules

Passwords are the keys that protect your digital fortress, but weak or easily guessable passwords can leave your business vulnerable to cyber threats. At Benchmark, we provide expert guidance and cutting-edge solutions to help you establish intelligent password creation rules that fortify your defenses and ensure robust security for your organization.

Here’s how our password creation rules can enhance your security posture:

Complexity and Length

Define and enforce strong password complexity rules. By requiring a combination of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and special characters, to ensure that your passwords are more resistant to brute-force attacks. Additionally, we promote longer passwords to create an added layer of defense against password cracking techniques.

Password History and Reuse Prevention

Implement password history tracking to prevent users from reusing old passwords. By disallowing the reuse of recently used passwords, we ensure that compromised credentials cannot be easily exploited.

Contextual Password Rules

Employ contextual password rules to enhance security further. By disallowing common password patterns, dictionary words, and personal information, we prevent the creation of easily guessable passwords. Our intelligent rules adapt to evolving threats, continuously enhancing your defense against password-related attacks.

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

Encourage the use of MFA as an additional layer of security. By implementing MFA alongside password creation rules, we provide an extra level of protection, requiring users to provide additional verification, such as a fingerprint, token, or SMS code, to access their accounts.

Regular Password Updates

Establish password change intervals based on industry best practices and your organization’s specific needs. Regular password updates minimize the risk of unauthorized access resulting from compromised credentials, keeping your accounts secure.
