ESB v17.10 Released

The latest version of the ESB platform, v17.10 is now available for immediate installation.

The most exciting feature in this release is the introduction of multi-factor authentication using one-time passcodes.

ESB uses the industry-standard algorithm for the generation of time-based one-time passcodes as defined in RFC6238.  This makes ESB fully compatible with a range of off-the-shelf hardware tokens, as well as virtual MFA devices such as smart phones.

As our customers place an increasing emphasis on data security, this latest enhancement to the ESB platform provides an excellent opportunity to harden your user authentication.

To learn more about this new feature, please contact your account manager.
