Filters

  1. To limit access to your Resource depending on a user’s country, add a Geographic Filter.
  2. To limit access to your Resource depending on the login time, add a Time Filter.
  3. Then assign the Filter to the Resource that you wish to apply it to.
The number of Filters that you may add depends on the Service Plan you select.

1. How to Add a Geographic Filter

This feature allows you to open access to the Resource only from certain countries. If someone tries to log in from a forbidden country, then they will not have access to the account, if from allowed, then the system will ask for a one-time password. You can also deny access only from selected countries.

  1. Log into your account in Protectimus SAAS Service or On-Premise Platform and go to Filters – Geo Filters.

2. How to Add a Time Filter

This feature allows granting access to a Resource only at a certain time; for example, only during business hours.

It’s perfect for corporate environments: even if a User leaves their Token at work, nobody can access the User’s account in their off-hours.
