PET-imageFind out which users in your organization are putting you at risk.. before the bad guys do!

Are your users putting a big target on your organization’s back?

The bad guys are constantly coming out with new ways to hack into your network and steal your organization’s confidential information. Verizon's recent Data Breach Report showed that 81% of hacking-related breaches used either stolen or weak passwords. And, a new survey from Dark Reading shows 44% of organizations say users pose the greatest threat to data security!

KnowBe4’s new Password Exposure Test (PET) is a complimentary IT security tool that allows you to run an in-depth analysis of your organization’s hidden exposure risk associated with your users.

PET makes it easy for you to identify users with exposed emails publicly available on the web, and checks your Active Directory to see if they are using weak or compromised passwords that are part of a known data breach. PET then reports on any user accounts affected so you can take action immediately!

Here’s How the Password Exposure Test works:

  • Checks to see if any of your organization’s email addresses have been part of a data breach

  • Tests against 10 types of weak password related threats associated with user accounts

  • Checks against breached or weak passwords currently in use in your Active Directory

  • Reports on the accounts affected and does not show/report on actual passwords

  • Just download the install, run it, get results in minutes!

Identify which users may be putting your organization at risk before the bad guys do!
