Stop unauthorized activity at the logon

The Financial Services sector needs to protect data and resources from unauthorized access, intentional or otherwise. Logon security with UserLock is a simple and effective means of stopping the threat. Prevent the use of compromised accounts, block careless login behavior, and end malicious actions from both external attacks and the insider threat.

Two-Factor Authentication


Add an additional security step to verify the identity of your users and secure access to your network. With UserLock you can enable two-factor authentication easily on Windows logon, RDP, VPN, IIS, and SaaS connections.

Single Sign-On


Give users secure and frictionless access to Microsoft 365 and other cloud applications with SAML federated authentication for Microsoft Active Directory (AD) Identities. Organizations can retain AD as the authoritative identity provider, while extending it to work securely with the cloud.

Automated Access Controls


Customized policy-based restrictions help verify all users’ claimed identity. Define who can logon, how (e.g. RDP, local, Wi-Fi, VPN), from where, which machine/device, how often (number of concurrent sessions) and when.

Real Time Insight, Alerts & Response

Real Time

Administrators can track and remotely interact with any session, to lock the console, log off the user or even block them from further logons. Alerts can notify IT and users themselves, of inappropriate logon activity and failed attempts.

Centralized Reporting


Accurate information for forensics and regulatory compliance. Detailed auditing on who was connected, from which systems, at what time and for how long.

Protect critical financial data and information
assets from external attacks and the insider threat

Stop Credential-Based Attacks

Genuine but compromised employee logins are now rendered useless to malicious insiders or would-be external attackers.

Prevent Careless Login Behavior

Password sharing, shared workstations left unlocked or logging into multiple computers simultaneously is now eradicated.

Mitigate the Risk of Malicious Activity

Access to any data/resource is now always identifiable and attributed to one individual user. This accountability discourages an insider from acting maliciously and makes all users more careful with their actions.

How financial services benefit from deploying UserLock
