At SmarterPay, we are continually updating our security features to make sure that your data is always kept safe. Over the next couple of months, we will be introducing a number of enhancements and new features to our existing security measures. The first of these updates will include changes to our password policy, account inactivity settings and IP whitelisting and is scheduled to be released on Saturday 31st October.
Enhanced Password Policy
User security has been strengthened with the introduction of mandatory character inclusion and minimum password length to ensure a higher level of password complexity. We have also added password expiry settings which will give users more flexibility for passwords to be regularly reset in line with their company policy.
Following the update above, existing all existing customers will need to reset their passwords on first log in.
You can read more about how to do it here.
Account Inactivity and IP Whitelisting
The new account inactivity settings allow administrators to disable user accounts automatically after a specified period of time, following the last successful login. This automated feature is particularly helpful in preventing unauthorised access through out-dated user accounts. You can read more about the account inactivity settings here.
The new IP Whitelisting or network access feature allows the restriction of access to SmarterPay Cloud from one or more IP addresses. This gives administrators the option of limiting user access to SmarterPay Cloud from your office network only. You can take a look at this new feature here.
