I work in a regulated industry where the default password complexity requirements provided with Windows
don't meet our regulatory requirements. I've been using Anixis Password Policy Enforcer for several
years to build complex password requirements on Windows Active Directory domains, and it includes
excluding dictionary lists.
Limiting factor: It doesn't work for local accounts or stand-alone systems, only AD domain accounts.
