Active Roles 7.3 supports hosting the database on Microsoft SQL Server 2017. Active Roles 7.3 Administrator Service can be configured by hosting the Active Roles Database in Microsoft SQL Server 2017 Database.
Active Roles version 7.3 supports integration with One Identity Starling services. The Starling Join feature in Active Roles now enables you to connect to One Identity Starling, the Software as a Service (SaaS) solution of One Identity. The Starling Join feature enables access to the Starling services through Active Roles thus allowing to benefit from the Starling services such as Two-factor Authentication and Identity Analytics and Risk Intelligence.
Since Active Roles manages confidential Active Directory user details in both on-premises and cloud based environments, it is appropriate and safer to have an additional security measure such as the two-factor authentication. Active Roles now supports One Identity's Starling Two-Factor Authentication service.
The Starling Two-factor authentication provides enhanced security by necessitating users to provide two forms of authentication to Active Roles, namely a user name and password combination along with a token response. The token response is collected through an SMS, Phone call, or push notification received on a physical device such as a mobile or any other device other than the browser.
