Why does my VGS Control account log out frequently?

VGS Control accounts should time out after 24 hours. If you're losing access faster than that:

  • Check that your cookies and cache are not being automatically cleared
  • Try turning off any browser extensions on our page
  • If the problem can not be resolved, contact your VGS Control account representative

Is the VGS Control integration safe?

  • VGS Control creates a role with read-only access to the entire account. They store your credentials in the same vault that holds consumer card information for large financial institutions and the safety of that information is guaranteed.
  • The integration provides more visibility, resulting in more automation and monitoring. If the integration is disconnected, those pieces of evidence (for auditing purposes) are removed from the VGS platform. The reduced visibility would not impact your ability to use VGS Control. 
  • VGS Control lets you customize the policies in cloud platforms however you’d like. In the event you’re audited, if automation and monitoring is not built-in for some tech systems, it just means you may have to gather some evidence manually.
