Introducing our Session Lockouts Feature — for a More Secure FTP

In mid-November, FTP Today launched a new session lockout feature that will create a more secure FTP hosting experience for our users. This new feature slows down and defeats cyber-attacks, and it’s also a key component to complying with certain cybersecurity regulations and standards. Sessions lockouts are available through three of FTP Today’s pricing plans: Premium, Ultimate and Dedicated Server. To start taking advantage of this new feature, sign into your administrator dashboard and click on the Account Lockout Policy tab on the left. Visiting this tab will give you the opportunity to configure session lockout settings by IP address and username. You can enable or disable the feature, set the number of login failures that will trigger a lockout, adjust the tracking window minutes, and change the number of lockout minutes. See below for more details on the benefits of session lockouts, as well as more information on taking advantage of and customizing session lockouts for your organization. As always, our team is here to help if you have any questions or would like to further discuss session lockouts.
