In case you hadn't heard, we will be upgrading our platform (Centrify Identity Service and Centrify Privilege Service) to version 17.3 this weekend (Sunday, March 26th). The complete list of new features is available in the release notes, but as always I will tell you about my favorites here:
Admins will notice right away that the dashboards now include a loading indicator bar (you will see a green bar at the top of the dashboard indicating the progress of the data being presented). In addition, we've made the following changes to the included dashboards:
- The Security Dashboard now only reflects denied access events (logins, access to apps or infrastructure, and self-service).
- The successful access events from that dashboard now appear in a new dashboard called "User Logins".
- The "User Activity" dashboard has been renamed to "User Login Map" to better reflect what that dashboard provides.
Windows 10 MDM (Preview)
As you know, Centrify Identity Service includes a fully-featured Enterprise Mobility Management solution. For years, we have differentiated our product in the IDaaS market by including rich mobile device management capabilities for Android, iOS and Mac. With 17.3, we have a preview feature, which can be enabled by contacting Support, that extends these capabilities to Windows 10 devices. Remember, the Windows 10 OS is the same across all supported devices (desktops, laptops, tablets, Surface and mobile)! The feature is enabled via policy, which when enabled allows users to enroll their Windows 10 PCs!
Device enrollment is agentless and once done, users will be able locate, lock, wipe and reset the passwords for those devices through the User Portal. In addition, enrolled devices will get a ZSO certificate from Centrify enabling easy and secure access to applications without passwords!
We hope you enjoy these new features and look forward to hearing your feedback!
