RSA® Authentication Manager 8.7
Supports Migration from RSA Authentication Agent 7.4.x for Windows to RSA MFA Agent 2.2
RSA Authentication Manager 8.7 SP1 now supports Windows Password Integration (WPI) in conjunction with RSA MFA Agent 2.2 for Microsoft Windows. Organizations that currently still use RSA Authentication Agent 7.4.x for Windows because of its WPI support can now migrate to RSA MFA Agent 2.2 for Windows. When the WPI feature is enabled and RSA MFA Agent 2.2 for Windows is deployed, it provides a passwordless experience to users.
Proxy and High Availability Support for Epic Hyperdrive Agent
Authentication Manager, from version 8.7 SP1 onwards, supports Proxy and High Availability (HA) for Epic Hyperdrive Agent.
SUSE Operating System Upgrade
Authentication Manager OS is upgraded to SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 SP3.
Oracle WebLogic Server Upgrade
To provide customers with a fully supported WebLogic server, AM 8.7 SP1 is packaged with the Oracle WebLogic Server 184.108.40.206.0.
Other Technology Updates
Authentication Manager 8.7 SP1 includes upgrades to Postgres 14.2 and Bsafe 6.2.5.
