Benefits of Password Complexity

We’re sorry, your password must contain an uppercase letter, a number, a metaphor, a graffiti, a hieroglyph and the blood of a witch.

Yes, but why?

Password-cracking software uses one of three approaches: intelligent guessing, dictionary attacks, and brute-force automated attacks that try every possible combination of characters. Given enough time, the automated method can crack any password. The goal of requiring your password to be complex is to make the process of cracking your password as hard as possible to crack.

Tips to keep your password strong

[styled_list marker=”check”]

  • Your password should be at least 7 characters long
  • It should not contain your account name or company name.
  • It should not contain a dictionary word.
  • It should not be relatable to you ( pet name, car model, phone number, name )
  • Is significantly different from previous passwords. Passwords that are similar (Password1, Password1*, Password2 …) are not strong.

An example of a strong password is Ilovemom = !L0V3M0m.

Re-Architect

This methodology requires the most effort to implement but it results in the most optimised recurring cost and will provide the best scalability for apps. This involves re-adapting the code of applications and the heavy use of SAAS solutions in order to replace existing hosted applications.

Re-Platform

This method utilizes the power of  PAAS services, like transferring a database to an as-a-service model,  the use of containers for some apps or the use of network/security functions as a service. Greater scalability and lower cost of operation is achieved.

the migration of workloads from  to the cloud without changing the architecture. Machines get to keep their  OS and apps. This is the quickest and easy way to migrate, but since its  utilising IAAS, its is also the most expensive on the long term.
