People are still choosing poor passwords. According to SplashData, which compiles a yearly report on the worst passwords, the word “password” itself was only second to the even more egregious 123456 in 2013.
Although many people expect passwords in the enterprise to be better, they aren’t — not even the biggest names in tech have top-notch network security, as Sony may have taught everyone just a few months ago.
That’s why Thycotic, a provider of enterprise password management software to the global SMB and enterprise space, just released Secret Server 8.8, its flagship solution for account management. Secret Server 8.8 includes improved support for Secure Shell (SSH) keys, allowing customers with large Linux or UNIX environments or network equipment to more easily manage all of their organization’s secrets regardless of the platform each user is running. That’s a potential benefit for companies with extremely complex networking requirements.
