IS Decisions has released UserLock 6.0, an application that limits concurrent logins, restricts access, monitors, alerts, and reports on session activity throughout the corporate Windows network.

UserLock 6.0's new features improve the protection of corporate Windows networks against insider threats by defining and enforcing connection time quotas, securing IIS sessions, and auditing local sessions.

Features and enhancements in UserLock 6.0 include:

Time quotas: UserLock 6.0 allows defining and enforcing daily, weekly, and monthly connection time quotas. This can be done per user, user group, organizational unit and session type. The consumed-time status can be checked by the network administrator in UserLock’s console and the time remaining is automatically displayed at login to the concerned users.

Protection of Internet Information Services (IIS) sessions: UserLock 6.0 allows defining and enforcing the number of maximum concurrent IIS sessions for a specific IIS application such as Outlook Web Access or an Intranet site.

Tighter integration with Active Directory: Every UserLock 6.0 restriction can be applied per user, user group, or organizational unit and the Active Directory tree can be directly displayed in the UserLock console.

Additional reports: UserLock 6.0 provides three new reports for RAS/VPN sessions (history, statistics, and a graphical report displaying the evolution of RAS/VPN sessions number). A fourth new graphical report also displays the evolution of the total opened sessions over a given period of time.

Sessions with local accounts: Local sessions are now audited and displayed in UserLock 6.0 console and can be remotely logged off.

In addition, UserLock 6.0's overall performance has been greatly improved (especially in very large environments). Synchronization with UserLock Backup server and with Active Directory is now more efficient.
