Numetric allows Administrators to customize three areas of security: Sign-ins, Lockouts, and Alerts.

Sign-ins

The Sign-in settings allows Administrators to define key settings related to the sign-in interval for users. There are three sign-in settings that can be customized.

The first allows Administrators to define the total amount of time a user can remain active, and still be logged in to the platform. Administrators can select from a minimum of 1 minute, up to 7,300 days. If a user has remained inactive for more time than is defined in this setting, they will be automatically logged out.

The second Sign-in setting relates to how frequently a user is required to sign in. Administrators can select from a minimum of 1 minute (not recommended), up to 7,300 days. After the specified time period has passed, a user will be automatically logged out.

The last Sign-in setting relates to how frequently a user is required to change their password. Administrators can select from a minimum of 1 minute (not recommended), up to 7,300 days. After the specified time period has passed, a user will be prompted to update their password when they log in to the application.

Lockout

The Lockout settings allows Administrators to define key settings related to automatically locking out (disabling) user accounts. There are two Lockout settings that can be customized.

The first Lockout setting allows Administrators to define a period of inactivity, after which an account will be locked out (locked out accounts will require administrators to unlock the account before they can login).

Administrators can select from a minimum of 1 minute of inactivity (not recommended), up to 7,300 days of inactivity. After the specified time period has passed, a users account will be locked - preventing them from logging in. An administrator will need to unlock an account in order for the user to log in to the system.

The second Lockout setting allows Administrators to define the maximum number of failed login attempts before an account is locked down. A failed login attempt occurs when a password is entered incorrectly.

Administrators can define the number of consecutive failed attempts, and the time interval, with a minimum of 1 minute, and a maximum of 7,300 days.

Alerts

The Alerts setting allows an Administrator to subscribe to selected user events. When selected, the Administrator will receive email alerts each time a user account is created, modified, disabled, or deleted within the organization.
