Start Up Wizard

This will enable users and partners to be able to very quickly and easily get to the stage where they can see idenprotect in action.

More details are available in the Idenprotect Core Platform Quick Start Guide.

User Portal

The User Portal is now a fully-fledged SAML service that requires the user to authenticate via idenprotect before they can access its features.

As the access to the User Portal is now secured by idenprotect more features have been added to it.

For example, a user can manage their own devices, remove devices from their account they no longer use or request a new enrollment email if they have a new device.

Windows Off-Line Use Case

Version 3.11 adds an off-line use case to the idenprotect for Desktop product meaning that even if a Windows PC is offline the user can still use idenprotect to authenticate to the laptop in a secure and password-free way. This approach uses a one-time-passcode based on the OATH algorithms.

Log Viewer Performance

Version 3.11 comes with a much more responsive log viewer making it much quicker to navigate through idenprotect logs making it quicker and easier to analyse issues.
