Hi
I have several USG1100, USG110 and one VPN100 device.

Is it possible (and how) to disable or rename the built-in Administrator account?
We'd like to get (a little bit) higher security, so that potential hackers also have to guess the username.

We already have created aditional admin accounts. But now we'd like to disable the default one.

Thanks in advance

    You could give it a super long password

    Yes, possible... However not the preferred way to go. But maybe the only one?
