We’re excited to announce a major update to LoginTC Managed, bringing several popular LoginTC Cloud features to our on-premises security solution.
This product update enhances the user experience while maintaining the highest level of security standards. LoginTC Managed offers the control of an on-premises security solution with the ease of set up and support of LoginTC.
This product update brings the following Cloud features to LoginTC Managed:
Read about all these new features below!
With the Remembered Devices policy, you can allow a Windows device to be remembered for a specified duration until the user signs out of their machine, reboots, logs in offline, or changes networks.
This allows for a more streamlined and efficient user experience, without compromising on security.
Remembered devices applies to console unlock logons, and can also apply to offline logins when Offline Authentication is enabled and configured.
Phishing-resistant 2FA has arrived! You can now use FIDO2 Security Keys for authentication in LoginTC Managed.
FIDO2 is available for:
Set up and deploy tokens easily in the LoginTC Managed Admin Panel.
The user alias feature allows administrators to add up to three usernames for one user, including administrator accounts.
User alias allows for better integration with legacy systems, and improves testing functionality for administrators, without needing to add any additional licenses.
Authentication logs were launched last year in LoginTC Cloud, and our administrators have made incredible use of them so far.
Authentication logs allow you to see all authentication attempts by your users right from the LoginTC Admin Panel. This helps you keep an eye on your organization and look out for any suspicious activity before it becomes a problem.
Authentication logs can also streamline help desk tasks by showing exactly why a user was denied authentication.
Regularly reviewing authentication logs can help you spot patterns, implement better cybersecurity practices and training for your end users, and create customized authentication policies based on your user’s past activity.
The geo-location policy allows administrators to enforce authentication policies based on the location of the user attempting to log in.
With the Geo-Location policy, administrators can control whether authentication attempts from particular locations have 2FA enforced, or are denied access entirely. Using available information about a user’s device IP address, this security feature helps administrators automatically control authentication requests that come from unusual locations.
Leverage this policy in LoginTC Managed to mitigate malicious actors attempting authentications from countries where your users aren’t located.
The Geo-velocity feature allows administrators to control authentication access based on the change of locations of the user’s access device from subsequent logins.
For example, if a user’s account has a login attempt at 9:00 am from an IP address in Sydney, Australia, and then 30 minutes later from an IP address in Madrid, Spain, you can set a geo-velocity policy to deny authentication to the second attempt.
This feature helps prevent social engineering attacks, where hackers try to force acceptance of fraudulent MFA requests by mimicking login patterns. The geo-velocity policy in combination with the geo-location policy adds a critical automated tool to help administrators keep their accounts secure.
The time of day policy allows administrators to control when users are able to log in to applications and services.
Administrators can choose which days and times access is allowed and set all other days and times to deny access to users. The policy can be applied at the organization, application, or group level.
Time of day policies can help prevent unauthorized access requests at times when your help desk or IT security teams are not around to monitor access.
We hope you’re as excited about these new features as we are! At LoginTC, we’re committed to providing the best possible authentication solution to our customers, and this product update is a testament to that commitment.
With the addition of these features, LoginTC Managed continues to grow into a rich and comprehensive solution that can meet all your on-premises MFA needs.
