The RSA SecurID Access August release includes the following updates and improvements to the Cloud Authentication Service:


  • New customers will be able to get up and running more quickly using three pre-configured access policies that they can either use as is, or clone and customize, saving time and effort when configuring the system.
  • You will be able to generate and download a user report that displays your users’ Enable and Disabled status. This information improves visibility into your user population.
  • When you configure strong authentication to access the Cloud Administration Console, RSA SecurID Access will prevent you from unintentionally locking yourself out by evaluating the access policy and verifying if it allows you to access the console. For example, the policy might exclude you based on identity source or contextual conditions. If you are excluded for any reason, you will be prevented from configuring this feature until you modify the policy or select a different policy.
  • The Cloud Authentication Service is now hosted on Microsoft Azure Australia Central, a protected-level Azure instance within the Canberra Data Center. This new hosting option enables compliance with Australian and New Zealand Privacy Legislation. The data centers are designed for Australian government and critical infrastructure sectors.

See the Release Notes for additional information about this release.
