Air Force Implements Anixis PPE

According to FCW the Air Force Air Combat Command is going to implement the Anixis Password Policy Enforcer. I’m a big fan of Anixis Password Policy Enforcer and recommend its us in AD environments for more granular password security requirements.
With native password enforcement in Microsoft, you basically have one option, on or off. You cant make the requirements granular. They must apply to all. With third party software such as Anixis, you can apply password policy to an OU, security group or individual account. The password complexity options are greater as well. If you use client software, you can provide an accurate error message telling the user why their password was rejected. Natively Windows can only recite the full policy which does not help the user select a better password.
