Please add case sensitive local passwords to Solarwinds NPM. This would apply to any local users created within NPM such as Admin or Guest accounts. Since the local Admin account is an account that should never be disabled, it would be good to be able to provide case sensitive passwords to adhere to company policies and NIST complexity requirements. Currently in version 2019.4, if you enter a case sensitive password on a local NPM account, the case is ignored when entering the password into the web interface. This may help a bad actor within an organization to gain administrative access to the system to make changes that may be unauthorized. As always, strong passwords are required by increasing length. But case sensitive complexity is a good value add for security.
