Password Policy Guardian
How do you enforce password policies
in Active Directory?


Namescape’s new Password Policy Guardian strengthens your network’s security with even tighter user authentication.

  • Enforces your password policies whenever a user changes their password
  • Configurable policies let you specify password filter rules far beyond the standard Microsoft password complexity settings
  • Provides the flexibility to apply your policies to locations, groups and individual users
  • Allows you to create and apply an unlimited number of password policies
  • View and test resultant policy settings for any individual user
  • Includes a restricted word list, and allows you to create your own dictionary by importing a delimited text file

The perfect combination – myPassword and Password Policy Guardian

When implemented with Namescape’s myPassword and rDirectory, users receive an immediate explanation of why a password does not meet the applicable complexity policies, so they can create strong passwords – every time - without Help Desk assistance.

Take a look at the Password Policy Guardian configuration options:

Settings tab – Specify an unlimited number of password policies.


Complexity tab - Rejects passwords that do not contain your distinct character sets.
