Did you know 53% of people rely on their memory to manage passwords? (Yubicos and Ponemon Institute)
As our lives collectively expand online, we have gone from having a few passwords to managing upwards of 100 on current day. That’s 100 unique passwords to remember, if you’re using strong password habits. Password manager applications can save users from cyber threats and make accounts safer by recommending strong passwords. On NCAM, we are dispelling the misconceptions about password managers and showing others how these tools will keep them safe online.
Our OEMs’s provide best practices that conform to the industry standards by using auto-generated random alpha numeric passwords. They also create password policies that enforce users to create unique and complex passwords. Additionally, our OEM’s provide automation of password rotations and workflow creation to provide administrative assistance, using one-time-tokens that may be escalated outside the users’ normal daily tasks. The stored credentials are encrypted and managed by our solutions and are synced to the customers Active Directory servers’ policies. This provides a more granular control of user credentials (on-boarding, off-boarding, lock-outs, etc) and enforces less privileges for administrative tasks. Our OEM’s provide extended access polices beyond Active Directory native controls, enable user password-reset capabilities and serve users from multiple domains (Enterprise password management).
We partner with an extensive list of OEMs that help our Federal customers reach their agency-specific cybersecurity missions, including enabling password management. Among these are:
