[March 8, 2017] Announcing the release of Manager+Agents v13.0

Dear Signiant Customer,

Signiant is pleased to announce general availability of the Signiant Manager+Agents V13.0 software today. This release introduces ObjectMover Workflows, a new licensed feature that supports transfers to and from S3 compatible local (on premises) object storage. Signiant v13.0 Agents connect directly to S3-compatible local object storage, and have been validated with offerings from EMC, NetApp, Quantum and other major storage suppliers.

Security is always Signiant’s top priority, and with Signiant Manager+Agents v13.0, we have improved upon our transfer security by adding support for TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2. When Signiant v13.0 Agent initiates a transfer, security handshakes will negotiate to the highest common TLS version supported by both agents. SSL v3 and lower are no longer supported.

Below are a few more key features and enhancements included in this release:

o  Multiple new dashboard widgets including:
  • File View: search for a specific file and view all applicable transfer details
  • Transfer Volume: overview of the transfer activity for selected Agent
  • Bandwidth Utilization: bandwidth utilization for all transfers that are currently running on the selected Agent
  • Zoomable Agent Status: zoom in on a specific location to see agent status details
o  Support for de-duplicated file systems on Windows Agents
o  Allow publishing of job reports
o  Directory Services timeout option
o  Updates to user permissions for improved security
o  Support for the latest releases of Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari and Microsoft Edge

For further details on all new features and enhancements, and for customers upgrading from previous releases, please refer to the release notes.
