Two factor authentication is an expensive but effective way to increase security, particularly if your management won't go for more secure passwords. However, I question whether your management would go for the expense of implementing a system like SecurID, which is also more cumbersome as you need a password and a personal device to do anything on your system, when they are frowning on simply remembering a longer password for a shorter amount of time. Two factor is great, and when coupled with strong passwords it's wonderful, but the most efficient use of time and money would be to lobby harder for strong passwords. Have you tried going the passphrase route, i.e., writing a sentence as a password and typing it in exactly like one would enter it into a word processor?
