Blue Coat updated its authentication agent to version BCAAA 6.1. This update includes support for additional Blue Coat products, such as PacketShaper, as well as some performance and reliability enhancements. These latter enhancements rely on the newer APIs provided in Windows Server 2008 and later; these are the only Windows Server versions compatible with this version of BCAAA.
Blue Coat recommends that customers using Windows Server 2008 or later upgrade to BCAAA 6.x to take advantage of ongoing software enhancements and support. BCAAA 6.1 is compatible with SGOS 5.4, 5.5 and all currently available 6.x releases
The previous version of BCAAA, 5.5, which is compatible with Windows Server 2003, will continue to be supported through the end of Microsoft’s extended support for Windows Server 2003. BCAAA 5.5 is compatible with SGOS 5.4, 5.5, 6.1, 6.2, 6.3, 6.4 and 6.5 releases.
