Two-factor Authentication options in Watchman Monitoring

Last updated:

Two-factor authentication is available to all users of Watchman Monitoring. Additionally, Administrators of a subscription can require that their employees and fellow Administrators use Two-factor Authentication as well.

To configure Two-factor Authentication (2FA or TFA) for a user, see Setting up Two-factor Authentication.

Companies can enforce Two-factor Authentication

As an administrator of a company, you can require that your users with Employee Administrator level permission must also perform Two-factor Authentication to access the Watchman Monitoring Dashboard.

Enable Two-factor Authentication for an Administrator

Settings > Security
Company Wide Security Two-factor Authentication

Once an administrator of an account has successfully configured Two-factor Authentication for their user account, the option to enforce Two-factor Authentication for the Company is enabled.

An Administrator must have Two-factor Authentication enabled to enable Company-wide Two-factor Authentication.

End Users or Client Users are rarely added, their access is read-only, and to ease support issues for our subscribers, end users will not be forced to use Two-factor Authentication. End users may, however, elect to enable Two-factor Authentication regardless of the company-wide policy.

Two-factor Authentication Enforcement

Two-factor Authentication Required

When Two-factor Enforcement is required for the entire account, Users who have not yet enabled Two-factor Authentication will be prompted to do so upon their next login.
