Have you ever wondered just how vulnerable your systems are because of the bad habits of a few end users? Moreover, have you ever desired a tool that can peer deep into your user base and pinpoint exactly who is putting your systems at risk? Now you can.
The good folks at KnowBe4 have developed a powerful complimentary tool capable of scanning and identifying users that have poor information security tendencies, such as using the same passwords over and over tied to an email address that has been compromised via a data breach, as well as using weak passwords that can be easily cracked.
The test only takes minutes to run providing you with a treasure trove of data from which to launch a crackdown on sloppy or careless users. Here’s the link to the app:
Requirements: Active Directory, Windows 7 or higher (32 or 64bit) NOTE: the analysis is done on the workstation you install PET on, no confidential data leaves your network, and actual passwords are never disclosed.
KnowBe4 is the world's largest integrated platform for security awareness training combined with simulated phishing attacks. They help tens of thousands of organizations to manage the ongoing problem of social engineering. Their mission: Train your employees to make smarter security decisions.
