RSA Announces SecurID® Authenticator 6.0.1 for Windows
SecurID® Authenticator 6.0.1 for Windows
The SecurID® Authenticator 6.0.1 for Windows is an all-new, modern, and intuitive authentication experience for Microsoft Windows users. It is a desktop application that combines the best of both classic SecurID OTP and modern, cloud-based MFA to better support mixed user populations and to facilitate migration from on-prem (e.g., Authentication Manager) to hybrid to cloud.
SecurID® Authenticator 6.0.1 for Windows replaces both the “RSA SecurID Software Token for Windows” app used by classic SecurID OTP users and the “RSA SecurID Authenticate for Windows” app used by cloud-based MFA users.
What existing RSA SecurID users can do
Existing users of the RSA SecurID Software Token or RSA SecurID Authenticate app can download the new SecurID® Authenticator 6.0.1 for Windows from the Microsoft Store.
RSA SecurID Token users (transparent icon)
The SecurID Authenticator 6.0.1 for Windows is not an automatic or forced update. End users will see no immediate change unless they choose to manually download and install the new software. On first launch of the new app, all credentials and data will be migrated automatically from the older app. After confirming successful migration of all credentials, users can safely uninstall the RSA SecurID Token app. No further action is required.
RSA SecurID Authenticate users (red icon)
Depending on the end user’s Microsoft Store settings, SecurID Authenticator 6.0.1 for Windows may be downloaded and installed automatically, in which case it will replace the older RSA SecurID Authenticate app. Users will notice a change in icon from the former red icon (RSA logo) to the new white icon (SecurID logo). On first launch of the new app, all credentials and data will be migrated automatically. No further action is required.
