New: Enable MFA and access management for all RemoteApp applications

UserLock is now compatible with all RemoteApp applications (before this, only RemoteApp applications with a desktop were supported). You can protect RemoteApp sessions with all of UserLock’s access management capabilities as well as MFA using all available MFA methods: push notifications, OTP codes and USB keys.

MFA for RemoteApp allows you to reduce lateral movement by allowing you to control which apps users can access via Remote App.

Note: You need to enroll users in MFA before you can apply MFA to RemoteApp sessions. If you have remote users, follow these instructions to enroll remote users in MFA.

New: Configure MFA by session type

You now configure MFA by session type, including:

  • Workstation
  • Server
  • IIS
  • VPN
  • SaaS

When you enable MFA, you’ll see two edit modes available for modifying the MFA settings. In each case, make sure you’ve read the documentation for the use case on each type of session to ensure MFA will be prompted.

  • All session types at once: By selecting this option, you can apply the same policy for all session types that are protected by UserLock.
  • By session type: Select this option to apply different MFA policies for each session type.

For example, you can create different policies for local Server sessions and IIS sessions connecting from outside the network.

New: Configure MFA frequency for every n minutes/hours/days

You now have more granularity to choose how often you want to prompt for MFA. You can prompt users for MFA after a specific time period defined by minutes, hours, or days.

This means that, for each session type, you have new options to select how often you want to prompt the user with MFA (see current options for UserLock 12.0 here):

  • After a given time: prompt users with MFA at their next logon after a specific time period defined by minutes, hours, or days (the option to choose minutes or hours is new in UserLock 12.1).
  • After a given time since the last logon from each IP address: Same as the above, except the amount of time will be counted from the last connection to that IP address, not the last connection.
  • Not configured: MFA will not be prompted unless another policy is applied through another protected account.

New: Configuration wizard

With UserLock 12.1, a new configuration wizard guides you step-by-step to configure the following features:

  • UserLock server: server type, protected zone, etc.
  • UserLock Web App
  • MFA for IIS applications
  • UserLock Anywhere

Improved: View notification history for UserLock Push

Now users can view the notification history in the UserLock Push app. This allows users to show admins what IP address notifications are coming from, to more easily spot suspicious behavior. It also builds end-user awareness (and responsibility).

This update concerns only Push notifications. OTP accounts do not have history.
