Extended Yubikey MFA Support
Yubikey support in XTAM has been extended to include MFA authentication when using both the RDP and SSH proxies through native clients. This extension compliments the existing Yubikey support in XTAM that is used for WEB authentication so that a user’s Yubikey can be used for additional access to privileged sessions.
Updated RDP Proxy Client Access to Support RDS Farms
Users can now connect to RDS farms using their native client access with XTAM’s RDP Proxy to establish secure remote sessions. RDS Farms allow for enterprises to deploy shared Windows resources in high availability configuration. Now XTAM users can connect safely and securely to these farms using their native RDP client of choice.
Create Your Own Custom SSH Proxy Banners
An often-requested feature from users is the ability to create a specific banner to display when authenticating with the SSH proxy. XTAM now supports this option to permit a System Administrator to display a custom, multi-lined SSH text banner up to several thousand characters long. Organizations can use this feature to display a message altering users to security information or any legal disclaimers prior to authentication.
Additional XTAM Extensions and Enhancements
Over the past 30 days we have made a number of additional enhancements to XTAM. These include:

  • Added a new Session Idle Activity Timeout parameter to terminate inactive session based on a lack of user activity events.
  • Introduced a new Record Type report to export all record types and their configuration to further meet Audit and Compliance requirements.
  • Added a new option to disable Clipboard Transfer for web sessions.
  • Updated support for Active-Active HA deployments to better manage automated operations like alert generation and job execution.
