KnowBe4, provider of the world’s largest security awareness training and simulated phishing platform, today announced that it has released a new tool called Breached Password Test (BPT) that searches nearly two billion records to identify passwords that are currently in use in a domain but have been exposed in a previous data breach.
The Breached Password Test is designed to help IT quickly isolate password security vulnerabilities and at the same time streamline the process of identifying high-risk passwords being re-used. The tool will examine passwords on accounts that are currently within any organization’s domain listed within their Active Directory.
The Breached Password Test (BPT) is easy to use and takes just a few minutes to run against an Active Directory list and see the results. Recently the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) officially recommended that user-provided passwords be checked against existing data breaches. With the BPT, IT admins can check their company’s domains and accounts as frequently as they like. With over seven million records lost or stolen every day, this can help an IT admin better manage password security within their organization."
