DBIR once again makes the case for two-factor authentication

The 2014 Verizon DBIR once again points to the need for two-factor authentication, just like last year.  Hackers continue to use lost, stolen or weak credentials in attacks - three-quarters of all attacks. Imagine implementing a control that impacted 3/4ths of all attacks?  Would that be beneficial.  You bet.

Can I re-enable users after a certain amount of time?

Yes, you can.  On the WiKIDAdmin interface, go to Configuration > Set Parameters > Create a New Parameter.  Call it "reEnableHours" and set the number of hours you would like.  Disabled users will automatically be re-enabled after that time.  Be careful though, you do not want to automatically re-enable two-factor authentication for a user that has been disabled for a valid reason.
