Logging on and portal security
 
Note 
To access the portal, visit https://admin.forcepoint.net/portal. (For tips on navigation the portal, see Navigating the cloud portal.)
The logon process uses cookies where possible. For the best user experience, we recommend that you accept cookies from the Security Portal. If your web browser is unable to, or is configured not to accept cookies from the portal, an additional screen appears during logon reminding you of the benefits of securing your session.
If the portal cannot use cookies to secure the session, it falls back to ensuring that all requests for the session come from the same IP address. This may cause problems for you if your company has several load-balanced web proxies, because the portal perceives requests coming from several sources as a security breach. Companies with a single web proxy or a cooperating web proxy farm should not be affected.
To avoid problems, we recommend enabling cookies on your web browsers.
Privacy statement
The portal uses 2 cookies during logon. The first is used to identify whether the user's web browser is willing to accept and store cookies for the portal; it contains no information. If the first cookie is successfully stored, a second cookie is stored containing temporary information about the session. No personal information is stored in either cookie, and both cookies are used only for the duration of the session.
Idle timeout
For security reasons, if you are logged on to your cloud service account and are inactive for a pre-defined period, you are automatically logged off. When you next attempt to perform an action, you are asked to log on again. Once you have done so, you are taken to the area of the portal that you requested. The inactivity timer is between 30 and 60 minutes.
Customizable landing page
By default, administrators logging onto the portal are taken to the Account > Licenses page. To change your landing page:
1.
2.
3.
Select Set Landing Page.
Note that some pages have been deliberately excluded from supporting this option.
