Fresh Exposed Password Data

Enzoic indexes newly compromised passwords on a daily basis so your organization is immediately protected. Our data is sourced from the public Internet, Dark Web and private sources. It is updated continuously by proprietary automated processes and human threat intelligence.


End Forced Password Reset

By continuously monitoring for compromised credentials, organizations can stop enforcing periodic password resets, meaning that users only need to change their password if it is compromised. This reduces IT help desk costs and improves security because users will choose better passwords if they don’t have to change them frequently.

Continuous Password Monitoring

Enzoic for Active Directory allows for real-time blocking of unsafe passwords at set-up and then automatically provides continuous monitoring of those same passwords to ensure they don’t become vulnerable later. This is essential because a password that was safe yesterday, may not be safe today.

How Enzoic Secures Active Directory Passwords

Using a standard password filter object, Enzoic allows you to create a “set and forget” AD password policy to detect password vulnerability in Active Directory, as well as hybrid Azure AD environments, and third-party Active Directory password reset tools.

When a new password is being created, a partial hash is evaluated against Enzoic’s database to check to see if the password has been seen in a data breach, is easy to guess, is commonly used, or matches your configuration settings that may make the password vulnerable to your specific environment.

Then daily monitoring against Enzoic’s continuously updated database detects if a good password becomes unsafe. Enzoic automates remediation with a variety of configurable actions that include requiring an Active Directory password reset.


Active Directory Flow

Get started simply by downloading and running the installation wizard on each domain controller.

Initial installation and configuration typically takes 15 minutes or less, though this may vary depending on the complexity of your environment.

We selected Enzoic for Active Directory because it automates compliance with the NIST password guidelines and it can be installed in just a few minutes. It includes continuous exposed password filtering and if bad passwords are found, remediation is automated so it does not create any additional work for our IT team. The custom local dictionary enables us to block our company name, product names and some of the common words our employees may choose to use. The experience is seamless for our users. It only impacts the users that are using bad or exposed passwords, all other accounts are protected without any additional friction.

Stay a Step Ahead with AD Password Protection


Breaches happen virtually every day. To head off hackers, a dynamic solution that addresses NIST guidelines and cross-references passwords against a continuously updated database is critical.

Microsoft Azure AD Password Protection may prevent simple password weaknesses, but misses attacks including: brute force, advanced persistent threats, and credential stuffing.

Enzoic's dynamic solution provides protection at the password layer. It draws on our proprietary database of multiple billions of unique exposed passwords and our dynamic list that is updated multiple times daily. Our approach ensures that passwords are cross-referenced against data from the most recent breaches and easily addressing NIST's real-time detection requirements.

Using 2FA and MFA Effectively


As credential theft continues to rise, what can be done to ensure password security?

The more layers of authentication, the more difficult it is for someone to access an account that’s not their own. However, 2FA and MFA have limitations: user friction, device compatibility, and cost.

Harden the password layer.

Employ the Active Directory policy of checking passwords against a blacklist of compromised credentials.

Enzoic helps organizations can strengthen passwords without impacting the user experience.

Modern Identity and Access Management (IAM)


Passwords are the weakest link in enterprise security because they rely on fallible human memory and practices.

More than 60% of survey respondents indicated their organization had experienced a security breach in the last year. The most frequent breaches involved passwords being compromised and malware attacks.

Satisfy enterprise security requirements and minimize the impact on end-user productivity by enabling user authorizations for enterprise applications, data, and IT services.

Improve security with Enzoic’s on-going password check against a continually updated list of compromised passwords.

Automation Can Help Save The IT Team Time and Energy

The goal of Enzoic for Active Directory is to allow IT to set it up and then just let it run. When an existing password becomes vulnerable, the remediation steps are automated instead of manual intervention.

Enzoic for Active Directory can meet all the NIST password policy guidelines. It serves as a comprehensive, automated password blacklist that filters for weak, commonly-used, expected, and compromised passwords.

Organizations have unique needs, so automated responses can be customized when compromised or weak passwords are found. The organization can select the appropriate automated action and the timeline for that action. Alerts can also be sent to the user, the help desk and/or an admin.
