Cybersecurity Ventures predicts the world will spend more than $1 trillion on cybersecurity products and services over the next 5 years, from 2017 to 2021. But too many companies are investing into cyber defense solutions before doing the basics of testing the strength of their passwords and privileged account practices.
The engineers at Thycotic have developed an impressive suite of free IT security tools for organizations ranging from small businesses to Fortune 500 corporations.
Thycotic’s tools make it simple and easy for systems administrators and IT workers to identify password and privileged account weaknesses. It only takes a few minutes to get started with each tool.

Windows Endpoint Application Discovery Tool
Hackers are targeting applications on your endpoints.
Right now your users are running hundreds to thousands of applications that help with accessing emails, browsing the internet, running videos, listening to audio/music, and more.
But here’s the problem: hackers and cyber criminals know how to exploit vulnerabilities associated with some of these applications to easily access your core systems. Save hours of effort by discovering vulnerable applications and associated risks in minutes with the Windows Application Discovery Tool.
Windows Privileged Account Discovery Tool
When it comes to privileged account credentials, what you don’t know can hurt you.
That’s because privileged account passwords are a favorite target of hackers. Once accessed these privileged accounts give hackers the keys to your kingdom…and often you don’t even discover what they’ve done for weeks or months.
Privileged Account Discovery for Windows from Thycotic will save you hours of effort while making your organization much more secure from hackers targeting your privileged account credentials.
