With each release, new features, enhancements, or resolved issues are added to the product.

The following platform enhancements are included in Security Center 5.7 SR2:

Security enhancements

Passive authentication with ADFS
With passive authentication (also known as web-based authentication), users can now authenticate themselves through a single sign-on (SSO) web page provided by an ADFS server. This allows system administrators to customize the logon experience and to integrate security features such as multifactor authentication (MFA), independently and outside of Security Center.

For more information, see What is claims-based authentication?.

New status indicator during logon
The connection status to the Security Center Directory is now clearly indicated.

If the Directory certificate is compromised, it is immediately indicated to the user.

Clicking the padlock icon displays more information and suggested actions.

For more information, see Logging on to Security Center through Config Tool.

Map enhancements

Indicate input bypassed state and alarm states on maps
Inputs associated to intrusion detection areas now have their state explicitly indicated on maps. The Bypass state is indicated with an 'X' superimposed on the input icon. The Active alarm state is indicated with a red dot superimposed on the lower left corner of the input icon.

DMP enhancements

Reset sensors from Security Center
From the DMP extension, users can now reset the state of 24-hour wireless inputs to match the input states on the intrusion panel, instead of having to reset the sensors from the keypad.

Honeywell enhancements

Honeywell intrusion panel extension
The Honeywell intrusion panel extension is available in Security Center 5.7 SR2, and will replace the Honeywell Galaxy Dimension control panel add-on in a future release.
