RSA, The Security Division of EMC, announces the release of RSA Adaptive Authentication (Hosted) 10 in the User Acceptance Testing (UAT) environment on September 18, 2011.

  For EMEA data center customers, the production installation of RSA Adaptive Authentication (Hosted) 10 will take place on October 23, 2011. For US data center customers, the production installation of RSA Adaptive Authentication (Hosted) 10 will take place on October 30, 2011.

  RSA Adaptive Authentication (Hosted) 10 offers Policy Manager enhancements, which include user interface enhancements, new sensors, and new List Editor options that enable organizations to more easily and flexibly define policy rules. This version also offers automatic channel detection, which automatically detects whether a user is accessing your application via a mobile browser or regular web browser to optimize risk calculations. Only organizations that sign up for Mobile Protection will be able to define rules in Policy Manager and filter open cases in Case Management for transactions originating from a mobile device.

  Note:  The detection of transactions per channel may reduce the number of cases created from channel-specific rules. For example, before the implementation of this functionality, a rule creating cases for all web transactions with a score higher than 900 (0.25% of the transactions) would create 25 cases when there was an average of 10000 transactions per day. With the new functionality, more transactions will probably be analyzed as resulting from a mobile browser. As a result, less transactions will be analyzed as resulting from a web browser, and for this reason, there will also be less cases. Based on the previous example, in the case of 2000 mobile transactions, only 8000 are web, and 0.25% of the 8000 transactions will be challenged. This will result in the creation of 20 cases.

  In addition, there may be a small variation in the number of cases created for mobile transactions sent with the channel indicator web during the first week following the release of Adaptive Authentication (Hosted) 10. The system will learn and stabilize within one week.

  Adaptive Authentication (Hosted) 10 also includes end-to-end out-of-band SMS authentication as an additional step-up authentication method, as well as call forwarding detection for out-of-band phone authentication. Both features provide another layer of security to online transactions and help protect against Trojan attacks and other threats.
