With so many different types of security software available for purchase, it is hard to determine what is and is not a necessity for the health of a company’s network. The basics like an antivirus and a firewall are always top of the list for a company, but have you ever thought to look at a password filter?
Using a firewall and not a password filter is like locking the front door of your home and not locking the back door. You are still leaving a point of entry open for a criminal. If a company wants to make sure their entire network is secure, then the IT Administrator should start with the first point of entry… securing passwords.
