High VPN Authentication Performance
The new AuthPoint Gateway now has a redesigned RADIUS component to support instances when a higher number of employees are using multi-factor authentication at the same time.
As businesses shifted to a remote environment, the volume of VPN connections increased dramatically, and which could cause some delays especially during peak hours where a larger-than-usual number of users try to connect into their networks (between 8:00-9:00 AM local time).
This improvement should provide a faster VPN authentication experience to all AuthPoint users at any time.
Support for Java 11 and AWS Corretto 11
Remember when we only supported Oracle Java 8 at an extra cost? The new AuthPoint Gateway now also supports both Java 11 and AWS Corretto 11, a free distribution version of OpenJDK 11, compatible with Java SE standard (learn more at https://aws.amazon.com/corretto/).
You don’t have to be an AWS customer to download it, so AuthPoint users can have the latest Java-compatible version at no extra cost.
