SafeNet Authentication Service – Synchronization Agent Release v3.4.2

We’d like to inform you that a maintenance release of the SafeNet Authentication Service (SAS) Synchronization Agent is now generally available for download from the SafeNet Support Portal (DOW3968) (SafeNet Authentication Service Synchronization Agent, version 3.4.2). It will also be updated on the public SAS agent download page.

This release resolves a number of issues with the agent application and with synchronization from SQL user sources. The previous release v3.4.1 primarily addressed timeout and performance issues with exceptionally large Active Directories.

All customers who are not yet using Differential Synchronization (ie. using agent version v3.4 or later) are recommended to upgrade to this agent version. The benefits of Differential Synchronization include less network traffic, reduced sync time, and 20-minute LDAP scan intervals. This also reduces system load, helping to increase the reliability of sync services. For a detailed explanation of the Differential Synchronization feature, please refer to the SAS Sync Agent FAQ, which is included in (DOW3968).

Please refer to the CRN (included in DOW3968) for additional details which issues are resolved and upgrade information.
