    Active Directory Lockout Concern

    Bob Haffner

      Hello all,

       

      We are evaluating Tableau and want to do Active Directory authentication.  Our config would have a Tableau Gateway server in our DMZ so our customers can hit it as well as internal people.  We are concerned about an AD box exposed like that.  Not necessarily from it being compromised, but rather someone with bad intentions playing guessing games with log in names and ultimately locking out a legitimate user's account.  Once a person's AD is locked out, they can't hit any network services or etc.  So its a bit of a pain. 

       

      Now, I realize this isn't a Tableau question per se, but I was wondering if anyone has dealt with this before.  Maybe Tableau can lockout before AD does?  Anything else come to mind?

       

      Thanks

      Bob
