Yes, we’re considering using smart cards or usb devices like Yubikey.
Do those enforce password complexity?
To answer suggestions in other replies, our developers are savvy enough, and we do have recurring training in place to stress the importance of good passwords. But we know also that some developers will choose the weakest password the system allows, making them the weakest link.
