Summary:RSA announces the release of RSA MFA Agent 1.2 for Microsoft Windows.
Platforms:RSA MFA Agent for Microsoft Windows

RSA MFA Agent 1.2 for Microsoft Windows leverages the RSA SecurID Access Cloud Authentication Services to provide strong multifactor authentication to users signing into Windows, both online and offline. The MFA Agent provides multiple authentication options for users, along with features that improve user productivity and security during Windows sign-in. 


Key features in this release include the following:


  • More choices with expanded authentication methods including RSA SecurID Token, Device Biometrics, SMS Tokencode, Voice Tokencode and Emergency Tokencode (online only).
  • Enable users to manage the number of remaining offline days for uninterrupted offline access to their Windows computers.
  • Emergency access to Windows computers when users misplace or lose their authenticators (RSA SecurID Authenticate device or RSA SecurID hardware token).
  • Improved productivity by not requiring additional authentication each time users unlock their Windows computers.    
  • Simplified user experience when accessing remote Windows machines using RDP. Users are only required to enter a password one time.
  • Improved security by requiring additional authentication during the User Account Control process. 
  • Administrators can use the reserve password to access Windows computers when other authentication methods do not work.
  • Consistent branding with custom text and company logo options during the Windows sign-in process. 


Customers using MFA Agent 1.1 for Microsoft Windows should update to MFA Agent 1.2 for Microsoft Windows. With the release of version 1.2, version 1.1 will be removed from RSA Link. Customers interested in using RSA MFA Agent for Microsoft Windows should install version 1.2.
