Enabling Captcha Globally

CAPTCHA (Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart) is functionality used in some portals during user authentication. When enabled, the CAPTCHA field appears when completing the self-registration page, creating a career site profile, or when retrieving a forgotten username or password. The CAPTCHA field also displays when using “Refer by Email” in the Career Center and on career sites.

Prior to this enhancement, Cornerstone's CAPTCHA functionality was not supported in regions that are unsupported by google.com. As a result, if an organization had users based in a region that is unsupported by google.com, they often disabled CAPTCHA functionality for their portal.

With this enhancement, when CAPTCHA functionality is enabled in a portal, "www.recaptcha.net" is automatically used in regions where "www.google.com" is not accessible, allowing for all users globally to utilize CAPTCHA based validation.

How Does this Enhancement Benefit My Organization?

This enhancement provides the ability to enable CAPTCHA for the entire organization, even in regions that don’t support Google.

Use Cases

Mien is an administrator of a Cornerstone portal in which users are distributed globally, including Brazil, China, and Germany. She would like to enable CAPTCHA for her entire user base to improve authentication security. With this enhancement, Mien is able to enable CAPTCHA for the entire portal and successfully leverage CAPTCHA for login authentication for all users.

Implementation

This functionality is automatically enabled for organizations that currently have CAPTCHA enabled.
