One of the disadvantages of programs designed to restore lost or forgotten passcodes is the rather slow-moving pace at which they work, especially when it comes to complex passwords. The limitations may not be on the software side only, but also because hardware resources are in turn at a smaller scale.
There are, nonetheless, some solutions that can circumvent such constraints and decrease he waiting time dramatically. Once such tool is the one named Elcomsoft Distributed Password Recovery, a powerful utility that will put to work not only your PC, but also those of your LAN peers or of anyone connected to the local network or the Internet and who is willing to share their resources.
The success of such a password decryption or discovery task is ensured if you take into consideration the fact that instead of having a single workstation struggling to get the job done in hours, days or even more, with this application up to 10,000 computers can join forces to achieve the same goal.
With Elcomsoft Distributed Password Recovery, you can monitor the progress of the job and check out what each enlisted agent is doing from a centralized interface. In order to have the burden evenly distributed and for a more efficient use of the resources of each system involved, you can use the built-in scheduler feature and set the process priority individually.
Alerts and notification messages can also be activated, so in case an important event occurs and you are working on something else, the program can send, on its own, an e-mail to keep you posted. The supported methods for decrypting and getting back the needed data consist of dictionary, mask and length attacks.
Elcomsoft Distributed Password Recovery manages to put up a strong performance and through an innovative approach it allows anyone to profit from an advanced technology, even if could do with a more refined look and some extra customization features.
