Lockout monitors failed Web Login attempts on your TSplus server. It logs attempts and automatically blocks the corresponding user after the authorized number of failed attempts has been reached.

You will easily see if an Address has been locked under the "Locked" column.
The next column indicates the numbers of consecutive failures for each user.

On the Web Portal, a message indicates the user that too many failed attempts were made:

Users can be quickly removed from this list, unblocked and whitelisted from the easy-to-use management console in the Web Tab of the AdminTool. Just click on the user you want to reset or unblock and then click on "Reset".

TSplus Advanced Security Integration with Lockout

If a failed login attempt has been detected on the Web Portal, TSplus Advanced Security will indicate the "Lockout Event", corresponding to a username on the Security Event Viewer:

TSplus Advanced Security BruteForce Defender

TSplus Advanced Security Bruteforce Defender covers the Client I.P. addresses aspect. Hence, it also works for RDP connections.

Failed Brute-Force connections attempts, are also visible on TSplus Advanced Security Event Log (private IP addresses are excluded to avoid blocking proxy):
