Because USM Central manages important security functions for the connected deployments, the system requires that all users log in with a user name and a password.
Note: AlienVault recommends that users enable multi-factor authentication (MFA) for their account. MFA adds extra security because it requires multiple factors to authenticate a user, making it more difficult for an unauthorized person to gain access to the account.
Users can log into USM Central with access based on their assigned roles, as well as the connected USM Anywhere and USM Appliance deployments.
Users can access settings for their own account and log out of the system by clicking the User icon () in the upper-right corner of the USM Central UI.
