Security SettingsOverview

The SmartEncrypt Management Console offers a number of security settings to further enhance access control to encrypted files. These include:
  1. Password policy - control password length, complexity and expiry.
  2. Client login settings - automatically lock accounts that have been inactive, or after a specified number failed login attempts.
  3. Offline Access - enable users to create a time-sensitive PIN on the desktop client, allowing them to log in to the SmartEncrypt client without an active internet connection. 
  4. SSO via Azure AD - enable users to sign in to the desktop client using their Azure AD credentials.
  5. Two-factor Authentication - require users to further prove their identity using a One-Time Password (OTP) during the login process.
  6. Geo and IP restrictions - restrict client login by white or black-listing geographical regions or specific IP addresses.
The following video provides a brief overview of each of the available security settings, more detail for each setting can be found via the individual knowledge base articles listed below
