In this episode of the VMblog Expert Video Interview Series, we are joined by Darren Siegel, product specialist and Lead IT Engineer at Specops Software.

Watch this video interview as we learn more about Specops, a leading provider of password management and authentication solutions.  Specops protects business data by blocking weak passwords and securing user authentication.

One of the areas we dive into is the topic of password reuse amongst end-users. Siegel explains the security risk, and what organizations can do to help break the cycle. He also describes the tools to create a strong password policy in your Active Directory and how to block over 3 billion compromised passwords.
