Local User Password Information

Dear JDisc Users,

we have extended our Security Add-On to collect information about local users and their password information. The issue with local users is that they are difficult to control. For users who are part of a Windows domain, it is pretty simple to configure policies to change the password on a regular basis. But for local users, this is more difficult and developers and admins often forget to change their passwords.

Therefore, we are collecting information about the password age, whether a password expires or not, the expiration date, and some other settings for local users on Windows, MAC OS X, and Linux.

Below, you find a typical demo machine where the password age is more than 2000 days :-). And the selected account is configured to expire in December 2021.

We hope that this feature is useful for your IT operations…

Did you know that we are also using Slack channels to communicate with our users? For instance, we have a channel to provide feedback and ask questions about the new WEB UI.

Best regards,
