Discover how to solve the need for security without burdening the worker with oppressive requirements.


Organizations need to protect their data and restrict access to enterprise resources to authorized users.

This paper reviews the challenge of password management and security, discusses the paradox of strong password policies, evaluates several possible solutions, and recommends a password management solution that is cost effective and easy to implement.
