New Azure Active Directory sync functionality deployed

New features, enhancements, and other improvements

Duo Device Health Application policy can now require select security agents

  • Duo Beyond customers may now require select security agents to be running on endpoints that undergo a Device Health check via a Device Health Application policy.
  • This can be accomplished using the new “Block access if an endpoint security agent is not running” option in the Device Health Application Policy.
  • The security agents that may be required are as follows:

Admin Panel enhancements

  • Azure Directory Sync
    • An “Import Notes” checkbox has been added to Azure Active Directory sync’s “Synced Attributes” section.
    • If an Azure Active Directory’s scheduled syncs have been paused due to an Azure authorization error, they will resume automatically after a Duo administrator performs a successful reauthorization. Previously, a manual sync was also required to resume the scheduled syncs.
  • Active Directory Sync
    • A sub-navigation bar has been added to the left side of Active Directory Sync pages to allow easier navigation to certain settings.
    • The currently-viewed section of an Active Directory sync page is bolded and marked in the sub-navigation bar to aid in navigating the page.
    • A “Status” section has been added to Active Directory sync pages that provides visibility into any connection issues.
    • Manual syncs are now run “in the background” of an Active Directory sync page. Navigating away from the page no longer interrupts the manual sync.
  • Any editable title (such as a Directory Sync name) can now be saved by pressing “Enter” instead of having to click the “Save” button.
  • Any errors that occur on a field within the Admin Panel will now have a red error icon before the error message for visibility.
  • Users Page and Groups Page
    • Input fields on these pages now display as read-only input fields instead of static text for Duo administrators with read-only permissions (Help Desk, Read-only, Billing, Application Manager roles).

New and updated applications

Duo Mobile for iOS 3.33.0 released

  • Support for upcoming improvements to the restore workflow for Duo-protected accounts.

Barracuda Web Application Firewall added as a Duo Access Gateway service provider

Bug fixes

  • Fixed a bug where the push button could appear twice in the Duo Administrator login workflow.
  • The Admin API will now return a 400 error instead of a 500 error in certain situations when an account create or delete fails via the adminapi.
