What’s new in RSA SecurID® Access:  May 2019 Cloud Authentication Service Release.

Blog Post created by Nathan Furze Employee on May 20, 2019

Improved visibility into identity confidence scores, thresholds and categories

To help improve understanding of the identity confidence attribute scoring and behavior we have added new events (25001, 25002) to User Event Monitor Messages for the Cloud Authentication Service  that show the authentication event score, thresholds for high or low confidence and the relative scores for device, location and behavior categories.  Additional details can be found under “Reporting a User’s Identity Confidence Score,” here - Condition Attributes for Access Policies .

Important: Upcoming Cloud Authentication Service IP Address Changes

To align with Microsoft Azure Resource Manager deployment model changes, the Cloud Authentication Service and Cloud Administration Console IP addresses will be changing in August 2019. Your deployment must be able to connect to both new and old IP addresses in August 2019.


RSA recommends that you start planning with your organization now to make the necessary changes to connect to these new IP addresses. If you do not update your firewall rules with the new IP addresses, your identity routers will not be able to contact the Cloud Authentication Service and services will be disrupted. For details, see RSA SecurID Access Cloud Authentication Service IP Address Change – Schedule for US and EMEA Regions
