Brute-Force Attacks Defense

The Brute-Force attack Defender enables you to protect your public server from hackers, network scanners and brute-force robots that try to guess your Administrator login and password. Using current logins and password dictionaries, they will automatically try to login to your server hundreds to thousands times every minute. Learn more about this feature on this page.

On the Web Portal

Brute-force attacks on the Web Portal are blocked when users enter wrong credentials.
After 10 attempts during a period of 10 minutes, the Web Portal will prohibit the user to logon for 20 minutes:
