Access Control Management to Windows Server Network

UserLock sets and enforces enhanced logon controls and restrictions for all authenticated users. This customized user access policy helps stop inappropriate user access to a Windows network and the resources contained within.

Enhanced Security Controls

The prevention of concurrent logins, contextual access restrictions and real-time monitoring and alerts of all access events are crucial measures in protecting a Windows network but have proven cumbersome (and even impossible) to achieve through native features alone.

Granular Access Restrictions

UserLock sets restrictions that consider each session type (including Wi-Fi, VPN and IIS session control) allowing IT to monitor and respond to any suspicious behavior on PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone.

Centralized Access Control

Restrictions can also be set by user, user group or organizational unit (OU). Setting restrictions for an entire group saves considerable time and helps IT implement effective login controls that can’t be achieved in native Windows functionality.

Temporary Access Controls

Authorize and manage temporary user access controls securely. Temporary changes to user access restrictions can be set for a defined period of time and automatically deactivated once this period is exceeded, without having to edit or remove existing rules. No access modifications are left beyond their immediate need.

Secure authenticated users logon and protect your network

In today’s enterprise it is often authenticated users (or those with whom they share their login) who are considered to be one of the biggest network security risks. Whether dealing with unintentional, careless or malicious activity, all authenticated users access must be better controlled to help prevent security breaches from this insider threat.

User Logons are the first line of access – and defense - in protecting a Windows based network. Whilst native Windows Active Directory provides basic network logon security – checking credentials supplied match user profiles - it’s vital to build on this with further protection to what all authenticated users can do.

UserLock provides a necessary security function that allows IT to automatically control the ‘When’, ‘Where’ and ‘How long’ users access resources on a Windows network and respond to any suspicious behaviour on PC, laptop or tablet.

Why a User Access Control Policy is crucial for your Organization’s Security

Without an appropriate and enforced user access control policy, users are able to login at any time, from any system or device and from several systems simultaneously. What’s more they can stay logged in for as long as they want and share their credentials with their colleagues or even outsiders without any danger of consequences with regard to their own access.

To efficiently mitigate insider threats and reduce the attack surface of a Microsoft Windows network, all user access must be set, controlled and enforced.

What’s more, by controlling user logins and ensuring that access to critical assets is attributed to individual employees, UserLock helps organizations to enforce policies and procedures consistently to address violations that do occur.
