UKCloud Portal security settings
The UKCloud Portal provides various settings to enable you to provide additional security to your accounts.
A green tick next to a section indicates that particular security setting has been enabled.
Password expiration - Set passwords to expire after a specified number of days. This ensures that users change their passwords frequently.
Google Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) - Add an extra level of authentication whereby users provide a security code from an authenticator app (such as Google Authenticator or Authy) as well as their password to confirm their identity.
Portal access restriction by IP address - Restrict access so that users can only log in to the Portal from specific IP addresses.
VMware Cloud Director access restriction by IP address - Restrict access so that users can only access VMware Cloud Director from specific IP addresses.
