User Security

  • Session timeout: Specify the period of inactivity after which a User will be required to sign in again.
  • Number of incorrect sign-in attempts allowed (before lock out): The number of times an individual User (i.e. with a specific username) can attempt to sign in with an incorrect password before he is locked out. Only a User with "Can Edit User Properties" rights can unlock a locked-out User.
  • Number of concurrent sessions allowed per User: Maximum number of simultaneous sessions allowed per User.
  • User password expires: Number of days that passwords are valid. You can also set passwords to never expire.
  • User password minimum length: The minimum number of characters required in a password.
  • User password requires both letters and numbers: Letters (a-z, A-Z) as well as numbers (0-9) must be used as part of the password.
  • User password requires both upper and lower case characters: Upper and lower case characters must be used.
  • User password requires non-alphanumeric characters: Passwords must include non-alphanumeric characters.
For greater security, enforce stringent password requirements: minimum 8 characters, include both numbers and letters, use upper and lower case, include non-alphanumeric characters, and expire regularly.

A note about being signed in as two Users at once: Remember that Firefox sets session cookies on a per-process basis, and not on a per-window basis. This means that if for some reason you want to be signed in as two Users at the same time, you will either have to use two different browsers (if one of them is Firefox), or sign in from two separate computers.

If a User gets locked out for a particular reason (too many failed sign-in attempts, for example), and no User remains with the sufficient rights to unlock that account, please contact Trend Micro for assistance.
