In addition to over 100 known fixes, we have 3 significant new features now available:
1. Windows authentication directly into Office 365 for Microsoft Office applications such as Outlook, Word, and Lync.
This feature further enhances our Office 365 integration and gets CA SSO to do the last Office 365 use case that may
have prevented organizations for using SSO to do SSO into Office 365. (Did you know that inside of CA, when you launch
Outlook from your desktop, Outlook is authenticating into Office 365?) Now CA Single Sign-On enables this seamless
SSO completely eliminating the need for ADFS.
2. Ability to have a single IIs server that hosts multiple websites have different agent settings for each website.
This has been a long asked for feature from our accounts that use a single large IIs server to host multiple websites, it
reduces Cost of ownership for accounts using this configuration and reduces complexity.
3. Ability to turn off “Authorized” calls from the Web Agent to the policy server. Typically each request made to a web server results
in the web agent asking the policy server if the user is authorized to access the page. Some customers view this as extra “chattiness”
in the environment that adds overheard to the SSO solution. This is necessary if you are doing page level authorization to different
types of users, but for many applications our customers are writing policies that say “if you are authenticated you are allowed access”.
This feature will allow those applications that use such an authorization policy to remove the extra authorization calls.
