The AuthPoint Gateway is an on-premise, lightweight software that runs on Windows, that provides four main functionalities:
- User and group sync with Active Directory or any LDAP service
- User authentication with Active Directory or LDAP
- RADIUS server interface to firewalls and remote access gateways
- Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) proxy to WatchGuard Cloud (WGC)
The new version of the AuthPoint gateway has redesigned engines and advanced connection management to improve performance and availability. It’s compatible with Java Development Kits (JDK) and Amazon Corretto (log in to WatchGuard Cloud and view the AuthPoint Download section for supported versions).
Action for Partners and Customers: Install the New Version! Install new gateway to avoid connectivity or management issues due to using outdated gateways.
The AuthPoint Gateway is easy to install. It just requires a connection key that is inputted during the installation. All configuration is done through the Cloud and if you are upgrading from an older version, simply execute the installer.
