IBM Endpoint Manager (BigFix) 9.1 Changes

Major Changes

  • Enhanced Security - Increase the cryptographic strength and communication protocol for the IEM Platform. This functionality allows the environment to disable SHA-1 signatures in favor of SHA-256, adds support for TLS 1.2, and increases the root certificate key strength from 1024 to 4096 bits. NOTE: This feature will result in the loss of management of any agents or relays with version less than 9.1, including Proxy Agents.
  • Common Criteria Certification - Meet the security certification by expanding the server audit logging functionality and adding configuration to the Console and Web Reports. These features include allowing the configuration of login banners and supporting an inactivity timeout.
