New Single Sign-On and Product Navigator streamline switching between products.
We’re dedicated to making improvements that continue to simplify things for you. Today, we’re announcing two upcoming features that will help with just that: Single-Sign-On (SSO) and the new Product Navigator.
With SSO, you’ll be able to log in once to gain access to your MAX Remote Management Dashboard, LOGICcards and MAX Risk Intelligence, with more products to be integrated soon. SSO is built on the leading industry standard for cross-platform authentication, and all Dashboard logins will go over HTTPS using the new protocol.
The new Navigator bar introduces a dropdown menu to let you switch between MAX products from within a single interface for a more seamless experience. Here’s a screenshot to show you how the Navigator looks in the Dashboard:
For clients with custom branding, the new features come with one change which is important for you to note: your logo in the upper left corner of the dashboard will have a new maximum size of 40 pixels high, and it will appear on a white background. We’ll automatically re-size any larger logos, but you are welcome to send us a new one if you want. Note that logos used in Client Reports are not affected by this update and stay at their current size.
Here’s how the Dashboard looks for those with custom branding:
We’ll be releasing the new Navigator and Single-Sign-On out over the next few weeks in a phased rollout across the Dashboard territories.
Please contact your account manager if you’d like to provide us with an updated logo to better suit the new size or white background of the Navigator.
New RC Agent
In addition to the new Navigator, we also have an RC Agent update going out (v10.3.3). The new agent adds support for ‘Arcserve UDP v6’ to the Backup Check and ‘Kaspersky Endpoint Security v10’ to the Antivirus Check. It also improves how the system handles a reboot requirement in the event a machine needs to restart in order to complete a .NET upgrade – if this is the case, the reboot is suppressed and the user will be notified through the Dashboard instead.
Staging Release Notes…
The full staging release notes are below. Note that staging release notes are subject to change, final release notes will go out with the release.
