    Hi Jeff,

    I checked in with one of our Sonar experts and here is his insight:

    The "Brute Force Login Attacks" model aims to detect attempts to access account via brute force attacks.

    It is a model based alert, so there is no specific threshold of failed logins. The models learns the failed login behavior or each user on a particular server and assigns a statistical score ( z-score ) to the failed login attempts. In other words, it detects statistical jumps or anomalies in the failed login attempts for each user.

    The alerting scores are configurable, but the defaults is  a z-score of 3, the industry standard for Outlier activity.More information in the online documentation:

    I hope this helps!
