VIP Enterprise Gateway 9.5 Release Notes

Description

 

These release notes accompany the delivery of Symantec VIP Enterprise Gateway 9.5
 
What’s New in VIP Enterprise Gateway 9.5
This release of VIP Enterprise Gateway supports the following new features:
 
·         VIP Enterprise Gateway supports authentication using VIP Access Push verification: When users sign in to your enterprise using their first-factor authentication, the VIP Service sends a VIP Access Push verification message to their registered mobile devices. The users can tap the Allow button on the verification message to perform second-factor authentication and complete their sign in. This ensures enhanced usability for users to perform second-factor authentication.
 
·         If the user has multiple registered mobile devices, the VIP Service sends the push verification message to all these devices. However, the user only needs to approve push verification once.
 
·         VIP Access Push is an alternative for security code. Users can always use a security code for second-factor authentication if VIP Access Push is unavailable.
