  SAN RAMON, CA, Jan 16 (Marketwire) -- 
Avatier Corp., a leading identity and access risk management solutions
provider, takes a closer look at password reset software, and suggests
requiring more complicated passwords for the office is a double-edged
sword in "Making the Case for Password Reset Software: The 25 World's
Worst Passwords." 

    "Easily remembered passwords can also be the weakest, inviting hackers
and generally compromising the security of an organization's network,"
said Nelson Cicchitto, chairman and CEO, Avatier. "However, while they
will ensure a higher level of security, complicated passwords also
require greater help desk intervention, mostly associated with password
resets or unlocking accounts due to forgotten passwords."

    Solutions for enterprise password management that include self-service
password reset emerge as the best answer to this challenge, according to
Cicchitto, and, in practice, go way beyond simply lightening the workload
for help desk personnel. Indeed, additional benefits of this software
include improved security, consistently protected networks, increased
rapid ROI, reduced TCO and much, much more.
