This past week, our team released Secret Server 8.6, complete with a brand new look and feel and assortment of new features. Whether you’ve already upgraded or are planning to do so, here’s an overview of the highlights to check out:
The most obvious update in version 8.6 is our UI. The look of Secret Server has changed significantly, as has the process for customizing themes. We’ve made it simple to upload your company logo and provide an easy-to-use interface for customizing your color scheme. Stay tuned for a post next week that will include a how-to video for using the Theme Roller.
Remote Password Changing and Security settings can now be applied using a policy set at the folder level. Using Discovery Rules to auto-import Secrets that require Auto Change? Try using Secret Policy to automatically apply Auto Change to all Secrets imported to that target folder! This eliminates the step you had to take before to apply that setting using bulk operation.
Upon upgrading to 8.6, a personal folder will be added for each user enabled in Secret Server. These folders will only allow permissions to be assigned to that particular user, to allow for secure storage of personal work-related credentials.
Soft Token Two-Factor Authentication
In addition to RADIUS and email two-factor authentication to Secret Server, we now support soft tokens. This includes Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, or any other mobile/soft tokens utilizing TOTP RFC6238.
For all of our API users out there, we’ve added the ability to retrieve DoubleLocked Secrets and two additional methods, AssignUserToGroup and GetAllGroups. Performance was also improved for calls to SearchSecrets.
Find all of our new features, major and minor, as well as bug fixes in our Release Notes. Want more information on how to use these features? See our Secret Server User Guide and Knowledge Base for usage and troubleshooting tips.
