How Enzoic for Active Directory Works to Secure Passwords
Active Directory Flow

For more information on Enzoic for Active Directory, please visit our Technical Documentation or Active Directory FAQ.

Enzoic’s simple plug-in uses a standard password filter object to create a new password policy that works anywhere that defers to Active Directory, including Azure AD and third-party password reset tools.

When a new password is being created, a partial hash is evaluated against Enzoic’s massive, continuously updated database. A list of candidate hashes is returned for a local comparison and no data is stored by Enzoic.

As a result, if a password becomes unsafe, Enzoic automates remediation with configurable actions that include requiring password reset on next login.

“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 in the newest version of Enzoic for Active Directory will enable us to block our company name, product names and some of the common words our employees may choose to use,” Said Peter Rios at Kingston Technology Company. “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.”

NIST Password Standards

The NIST recommendation is to screen for commonly used and compromised passwords to prevent people from selecting these easy to guess passwords.

Enzoic aids with NIST 800-63b requirements for real-time detection of unsafe passwords and eliminating the need for periodic password expiration. We continuously collect compromised passwords and aggregates cracking dictionaries to create a comprehensive blacklist of unsafe passwords.

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 and Dark Web. 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.

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.

The most recent version of Enzoic for Active Directory can meet all the NIST criteria. 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.
