New features, enhancements, and other improvements

Trusted Endpoints blacklist functionality

  • Duo Administrators can now blacklist an endpoint that was previously reported as a “Trusted Endpoint.” This can be useful in cases where the endpoint is reported lost or stolen.
  • Blacklisting an endpoint will prevent it from gaining access to applications as long as there is an active Trusted Endpoints configuration for devices running the same OS as the endpoint.
  • This capability will initially apply to macOS, Windows, and iOS endpoints for which Duo utilizes a certificate to determine whether the endpoint is trustworthy or not.
  • Blacklisting can be configured via the endpoint’s detail page.

Individual user sync now available for Help Desk administrators

  • Duo Administrators with the Help Desk role can now perform directory syncing of individual users, even ones not yet in Duo, from the directory sync page (which is otherwise read-only for them).
    • They also continue to be able to perform individual user directory syncing from the user detail screen.
    • Help Desk admins can now see the “Directory Sync” menu item under “Users” in the navigational menu on the left side of the Duo Admin Panel.

Miscellaneous enhancements

  • Modified directions in the Duo Mobile activation step of the sign-up process to clarify that the UI element that needs to be tapped is either “Add Account” or “+”.
  • When an administrator’s authentication attempts are reset via the Duo Admin Panel, API, or self-remediation, an event is now logged in the Administrator Actions Report. This was implemented in a previous release but was mistakenly left out of the release notes until now.
