It is possible to set and enforce specific security policies at the Enterprise level in zkipster.

What are the advantages of setting Custom Security Policies?

There are many advantages to controlling your own custom policies:

1. Improve Security: Align user access management with the requirements of your organisation and retain full control over changes.

2. Achieves Compliance: Allows your organisation to achieve the necessary compliance requirements to mitigate audit findings and avoiding potential fines.

3. Stronger passwords: Your internal IT team can set the password policy that is satisfactory to your organisation.

4. No repeated passwords: Your organisation can restrict password fatigue and limit the amount of time passwords are reused.

5. Company managed Multi-factor authentication: Multi-factor authentication, or MFA, refers to the use of more than one identity factor to authenticate a user. For example, in addition to entering a username and password, a user needs to receive an SMS to their smartphone. MFA is much more secure than relying on a password alone.

How to set up Custom Security Policies in zkipster?

In the Account Settings, in the Security tab, you can set up password policies, password attempt limits and managed multi-factor authentication (MFA).

Password Policies

Password restrictions in zkipster can be specified as follows:

  • Minimum Length - None, 4 to 12 characters

  • Password Complexity - None, Low - alpha only, Medium - alpha & numerics, High - alpha, numeric and special characters

  • Password Expiration - Never, 1 to 12 months

  • Password Retention - Disabled, 1 to 12 passwords

You can also set up a block to multiple failed login attempts, to minimize the risk of malicious hacking of passwords.

Failed Login Attempts in zkipster can be specified as follows:

  • Never, 3, 4, 5, 10, 15, 20

On the Security tab, you'll also find where to set up managed multi-factor authentication (MFA).
