Q4 ‘20 Release: Improving Security & Enhancing the Developer & Administration Experience

January 25th, 2021   |     |  what's new, product & technology

Although 2020 is now in the rearview, COVID-19 continues to impact businesses and the global economy. No one can truly predict what the workforce will look like within the next year or two, but it’s safe to say that the need for simple, secure identity and access management will remain. In fact, a recent Forbes article notes that cybersecurity needs are more business-critical than ever before and predicts that worldwide security spending will reach over $174 billion in 2024.

OneLogin, a leader in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Access Management, continues to stay at the forefront of the IAM marketplace and our Q4 ‘20 Product Release highlights key features and functionalities including improved security, reporting enhancements, developer tools and several new provisioning connectors. Let’s take a look at the enhancements below.

Security

New Q4 2020 release spam protection

Are you running into issues with bots spamming your help system? We want to simplify Help desk frustrations, reduce costs and enhance efficiency, so we now offer an easy solution to prevent bots from overwhelming your Help system. The best thing about it? It’s an easy reCaptcha system that most users are familiar with!

This new spam protection adds additional security by simply requiring a user to complete a reCaptcha before submitting a ‘Help’ task on the login page.

Admins, ready to set this feature up now? The default setting for this feature is disabled, but it’s easy to turn on. After logging into your OneLogin administration portal, go to ‘Settings’, then ‘Branding’ and click on ‘Support’. There, you’ll see the checkbox to ‘Enable Spam Protection’. Click it and hit Save!

Administration

As more users are accessing systems remotely, admins need a way to look at what devices are being used across their user base. To enhance this capability, we have added a Device Table CSV export, making it a more powerful tool to display desktop and laptop endpoints, as well as provide rich contextual information of users’ endpoints. This tool will enable administrators to have a clear picture of device usage across the organization, improve device maintenance and compliance as well as identify potential security vulnerabilities.

To create the Device Table CSV report, from the admin portal click on ‘Devices’, then ‘Devices’ again and ‘Download CSV’. It’s that simple!

Developer

OneLogin is proud to support the developer ecosystem, making it simple to build identity access and functionality into your organization’s workflows. We continue to invest into our developer platform and in Q4 ‘20 released our Roles v2 API. This API lets you manage Roles, including Role Apps, Users, and Admins.

Previously, there was not an easy way to manage roles entirely via the API, as the Roles v1 only allowed to List or Get Roles, and Add or Remove roles of a single user. Now you can manage roles simply and securely with the Roles v1 API, enabling better API control and configuration support via our official Terraform provider.

Access our Developer page at developer.onelogin.com and find all of the tools, resources, docs, guides and support needed to start building today!
