In case you hadn't heard, we will be upgrading our platform (Centrify Identity Service and Centrify Privilege Service) to version 16.11 this weekend (Saturday, November 19th). The complete list of new features is available in the release notes, but as always I will tell you about my favorites here:
If you've been following Centrify over the past year, you've surely heard us talk about our MFA Everywhere initiative. This has been the Centrify rallying cry for the past several months, as we've been encouraging our customers to protect their apps and infrastructure by using multi-factor authentication wherever possible. This is an area where we continue to invest to further extend our ability to protect the enterprise. To this end, we are happy to announce that with 16.11, we now support MFA for Windows login.
This is an add-on feature available through a new endpoint license. Please contact your account team for more information.
Form-Filling Extended Beta
You may recall that we introduced a beta feature for form-filling when 16.9 was released. Again, this enables users to go directly to a username / password application (instead of the user portal) to get signed in automatically to the application. In 16.9, we made this feature available for Firefox only. Now, the beta is available for IE and Chrome, too! Better still, the beta software is directly available for you to download from the "Downloads" menu in the Admin Portal.
You will also notice that we officially changed the name of our administrative portal from Cloud Manager to Admin Portal. We did this to have a more consistent user experience across deployment models (the Privilege Service is available for on-premises deployments, so we dropped the term Cloud from our admin portal and from our Connectors).
Notifications Menu for Mobile
Finally, we've updated our mobile app to include a notifications center. In the mobile app you will see a new bell icon, if you have a notifications that require an action (e.g. approve an authentication request, or confirm you've enrolled another mobile device) the bell will contain an indicator that you have actions to take.
We hope you enjoy these new features and look forward to hearing your feedback!
