In a remote administration scenario, a user has permissions within an organization’s infrastructure. An adversary obtains a password and login credentials that grants him or her access to the server. Using those credentials, the adversary can then login to the server with the same accounts and permissions. This can be a huge security risk.
To secure remote administration from being stolen, we protect the credentials that give the remote administrator access to remote servers. They are protected with a static, one-time password that must be supplied by the remote user.
Network Security (NS) is used by Sophos Manager to monitor and control the Network Security features of the product installed on a network. If you manage a network with Sophos Manager, you can use NS to control its options in one central location; you can define which features to turn on and off. If you do not manage a network with Sophos Manager, for information, you can turn on and off NS features from the Settings menu.
Network Security requires a browser session. If you are not directly logged into the Network Security Settings screen, an Auto-Login URL is sent to your browser. You can use this Auto-Login URL to connect to Network Security, view NS state, etc. You are prompted for the Auto-Login URL when you attempt to access Network Security Settings. You will need to scroll down and enter a valid Auto-Login URL into the Network Security Settings screen. d2c66b5586
