Qualys Cloud Platform Release 8.16 includes New Password Security Options

 

We’ve added several new password security options to enforce a strong password policy when logging into your Qualys subscription.

 

Go to Users > Setup > Security to set password requirements for all users in the subscription.

 

 

New Configurable Options

 

  • Password must contain at least one lowercase letter. 
  • Password must contain at least one uppercase letter. 
  • Password must contain at least one numeric character. 
  • Password must not contain 3 identical characters in a row. 

Good to Know

 

  • For existing subscriptions, the new password security options above are off by default.
  • For new subscriptions, the password security options above are on by default.

 

New Defaults

By default, you cannot reuse any of your last 13 passwords. This option will become configurable in a future release.

Qualys is also enforcing a special characters requirement, by default. This option too will become configurable in a future release.
