Microsoft reckons 0.5 per cent of Azure Active Directory accounts as used by Office 365 are compromised every month.

"Enzoic for AD is a tool that integrates into Active Directory and enforces additional password rules to prevent users from using compromised credentials," the product's page says. "Unlike products that only check passwords after they are saved, thus requiring subsequent reset by the user, Enzoic validates the password at the time it is being selected. Passwords are then continuously monitored to detect if they become compromised - with automated remediation and alerts. It helps organizations with NIST Password Guideline compliance in Active Directory."
