- REST-based agent that addresses security and compliance needs with strong crypto algorithms that support FIPS 140-2.Uninterrupted access to boost productivity with offline emergency access.
- Enable users to do more with self-service features such as offline days management, customization of MFA Agent interfaces, and quick access to help links.
- Empower administrators with new configuration and control settings to better manage load-balancing and fail-over mechanisms, user access with challenge groups, and password order changes.
