Passware Kit Accelerates Distributed Password Cracking

Passware, Inc., a provider of password recovery, decryption, and electronic evidence discovery software for corporations and law enforcement organizations, has announced Passware Kit 10, the first commercially available software to accelerate distributed password recovery using both graphics processing units (GPUs) and Tableau TACC1441 hardware…Passware Kit 10 now uses the computing power of multiple computers to achieve superior performance thanks to distributed password recovery, which divides the password recovery process among multiple computers running Passware Kit Agents. Law enforcement and government agencies, institutions, corporations and private investigators can now dramatically reduce the time-consuming process of cracking strong passwords by leveraging the power of hardware-accelerated distributed password recovery.

“Once considered a lengthy process, recovering a strong password is made much easier because of Passware Kit’s ability to connect multiple computers to one password recovery process,” said Dmitry Sumin, president of Passware, Inc. “Distributing the process among many computers dramatically improves its speed. The added support of different hardware accelerators, like Tableau TACC and nVidia GPU graphic cards, allows companies with a network of workstations to leverage the computing power of all this hardware to recover the password efficiently and effectively.”

The Distributed Password Recovery can be applied to over 40 different file types, including ones with strong encryption, such as MS Office do*****ents, Zip and RAR archives, and TrueCrypt containers.

Passware Kit 10 is now available from Passware and a network of resellers in the U.S., Europe and Asia. The manufacturer’s suggested price starts at $795. The software comes with one year of free updates.
