Audit local account lockout and password policies

XIA Configuration can now document the local account policies similar to what you would see in the Local Security Policy MMC.

This includes both the effective password policy and account lockout policy for a given machine. These settings can be configured locally or through a domain based group policy object (GPO).

This can be useful in tracking security vulnerabilities on network servers.

Information includes

  • Enforce password history
  • Maximum password age
  • Minimum password age
  • Minimum password length
  • Account lockout duration
  • Account lockout threshold
  • Account lockout reset duration

For more information see the Windows machine agent capability on the XIA Configuration web site
