FireDaemon Fusion 7 New Features
|Microsoft ceased delivering 32-bit native operating systems in 2020. Hence, FireDaemon Fusion 7 is now only offered as a 64-bit product.
|Hardware-based code signing
|All FireDaemon software products have been digitally signed for several years. Earlier installers and binaries were signing with SHA1 and SHA256 2048-bit digests. Fusion 7 implements hardware-based SHA256 4096-bit Extended Validation (EV) code signing. SHA1 has been dropped. This adheres to industry best practices and provides two levels of trust
|Hidden Licensing Information
|License information is hidden from regular users (i.e. non-administrators)
|FireDaemon Fusion 6 incorporated OpenSSL 1.1.1. We have replaced that with OpenSSL 3.1 which is the latest release.
|Passkey Passwordless Login
|FireDaemon Fusion 7 offers passwordless multi-factor authentication via Hanko Passkeys.
|The FireDaemon Fusion RESTful API has been updated. Check out the samples.
|We always shipped the most recent Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime inside the installer which was installed as a pre-requisite. This dependency has been removed and FireDaemon Fusion 7 now uses the Universal C++ Runtime which is pre-installed with the operating system and maintained via Windows Update. This results in the installer being significantly smaller.
|FireDaemon Fusion 6 and earlier installers were built using InstallShield. InstallShield does not support the detection and deployment of the Microsoft Visual Studio Runtime (MSVCRT) particularly well, forcing reboots in the event of earlier versions of the MSVCRT being present on your computer system. We have replaced the InstallShield MSI installer with an Advanced Installer MSI installer package that correctly handles MSVCRT deployments and upgrades.
|FireDaemon Pro Compatibility
|FireDaemon Fusion 7 is designed to work with FireDaemon Pro 5 only.
|Software Assurance and Priority Technical Support Subscription
|FireDaemon Fusion 6 offered two subscriptions to customers. A Software Assurance subscription and a Priority Technical Support subscription. This often caused confusion in regard to software upgrades and support entitlements. To resolve this we now have a single unified Software Assurance and Priority Technical Support subscription. It costs roughly the same as both previous subscriptions. We feel this will be easier to manage and simpler to understand from an upgrade entitlement, software procurement, and support perspective moving forward.
