I am looking for a free tool that I can run to check that passwords on all of my servers are secured and meet standards. Basically I want to make sure that the passwords are either not set or, clear, or bogus. I do not care to brute force or know the passwords I just want to check them to make sure they are good and secure. Thanks.

If you have windows Domain environment, you can force it using GPO. I don't think there is any such tool for free.

It is forced via gpo but we have some servers with local accounts and virtual hosting devices that we want to check.

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

Global policy will force it. I didn't understand use of local account. If machines are part of domain.

If you want to check whether a password is secure it means that you actually try to crack it. It is against the policy of this site to provide links to tools that allow you to do so, sorry.

You can do a Google search for Cain & Able  or John the Ripper.  

SANS uses both of those tools for their security courses.
