Control Panel - Security Options

Course overview

Use the Security Options applet in the Control Panel to configure your system security. 

Manage the security options to:

  • Lock and disable user accounts after a number of unsuccessful login attempts. This can prevent fraudulent access to iSAMS. See Account Disable & Lock Options.
  • Set password requirements for user accounts, such as a minimum password length.
  • Lock and timeout user accounts after a set period of inactivity. This limits the exposure of your system's data to active users only.

Security features can also be configured for your system as well as user accounts. You can change the security features of your system to:

  • Limit cookie sharing across your domain. Specify the domain that the cookie applies to and select areas of iSAMS that can share the cookie.
  • Allow and force users to connect to iSAMS through a secure connection.
  • Change your system administrator's contact details.
