Setting all your local administrator accounts to one common password is not a good IT security practice. If just one of your machines is compromised and the password discovered, every other machine with that same password can be taken over.
Lieberman RED – Rapid Enterprise Defense Systems Management includes features that make securing administrator passwords easy. RED Systems Management’s password generator creates truly random passwords at a user-defined level of length, complexity and Windows version compatibility. You can schedule the password randomizations to occur as frequently as your security policies require.
Password Generator Automatically Creates Secure Admin Passwords
The password generator provides precise control over the generated passwords. It can change the administrator passwords for Windows systems throughout your network without the need for scripting or other manual processes. Password changes are audited, and failed changes are automatically retried. The cryptographically complex passwords can be set for up to 127 characters, and are secured within the host system.
You’ll be protected against unauthorized users gaining peer-level access to your Windows systems, and the potential exposure of vital corporate data. You’ll also maintain compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), HIPAA, PCI-DSS and other regulatory mandates that require reasonable controls against the compromise of local administrator credentials.
