Thank you for being part of this beta. The general availability date for Transparent User ID will be on the 16th of April 2019.
Transparent User ID Beta is for selected customers using Mimecast Web Security. See New Features for Mimecast Security Agent for more information.
Mimecast Security Agent Release Notes
- Agent Settings: Transparent User ID functionality removes the need for users to log into or interact with the security agent.
- Protected Devices: Windows devices now generate a unique ID via Windows Publisher, ensuring that duplicate entries aren't created. (Windows only)
Once all your Windows protected devices are updated with the latest ‘Device ID’, we'll offer a one-off purge service of your previous protected devices list. See New Features for Mimecast Security Agent for more information.
- 2-Factor Authentication: Users can now log into the MSA using their 2FA credentials. (Windows Only)
