Proactive Password Auditor is an excellent tool that makes security management easy for network administrators. It will help run an audit of account passwords to then take proper action. What it does is to expose insecure passwords, and the program also displays how secure a network would be under attack.
Additionally Proactive Password Auditor determines which passwords are weak and then ask them to be changed. It also elaborates a security policy to ensure the security of the network and this forces network users to change passwords regularly, and will audit again the network after every change.
A great feature this application has is that it can examine the security by attempting to break into the network. It performs tests by doing common attacks on the account passwords in an attempt to recover a password of a user account.
Furthermore it has compatibility with off-line recovery of account passwords by analyzing dump files saved by Elcomsoft System Recovery, local Registry or binary Registry files, and is the only way that a password can be obtained.
According to Elcomsoft this program is guaranteed and if you run a break attempt test it may take up to 30 days to retrieve a password. So it is a good choice that helps set the network security level to the best.
Proactive Password Auditor has support for Windows NT4, 2000, XP, Vista, Windows Server 2003, and Windows Server 2008, making it an excellent choice for windows based networks.
