Cloud4Wi offers a number of tools for administrators to maximize the security of their network deployments. Use of these tools provides optimal protection, visibility, and control over your access to the Cloud4Wi Platform. This page contains information about how to quickly and easily increase the security of your Cloud4Wi Accounts.
1. CREATION OF A PASSWORD
At the first access to the Cloud4Wi Platform, the System User is requested to change the password received via email or text message.
The new password has to be created according to the following criteria:
- It has to be at least 8 characters
- It has to include 1 uppercase, 1 lowercase, 1 number and 1 special character (@.,:;-_()=?'+#!).
After the password change, the Cloud4Wi Platform logouts the System User.
2. STORAGE OF A PASSWORD
The password is encrypted before it is stored on the Cloud4Wi Platform. An encrypted password cannot be reverse-engineered to reveal the real password.
3. RECOVERY OF A PASSWORD
A password can be recovered in two different ways:
- The System Admin can reset the password on behalf of another System User. The System User will receive the new password via email or text message.
- The System User can reset the password before logging in to the Cloud4Wi Platform.
4. LOCK SYSTEM USERS
The System Admin can lock or unlock the other System Users.
The Cloud4Wi Platform logs all System Users’ activities (e.g. login, add or edit entities), including the IP Address of the used device.
6. VERIFY SSL CERTIFICATES
The System User can access to the Cloud4Wi Platform only via https. This ensures that all communications between the System Users and Cloud4wi Platform are encrypted.
7. IDLE TIMEOUT
The Cloud4wi Platform has an idle timeout of 300 seconds. After 300 seconds of inactivity, the Cloud4Wi Platform logouts the System User.
