We are very pleased to announce that we released Lucity 2018 this week. It is available for download from the Lucity Support Portal. Check out our release notes for a full list of changes. Here are some highlights:
We’ve made no secret about the fact that we consider our clients friends – and we love to hear that same sentiment coming from our clients. When an agency finds that LucityAM is the best solution for them, we want them to also recognize that the Lucity family (our staff, our clients, and our partners) is a BIG part of that solution. So we’d like to take a minute to welcome the following organizations to the Lucity family. We look forward to building solid, successful relationships with you as you begin your implementation journeys!
Last week at our Annual Conference & Training (ACT) we introduced the Lucity Legacy Award and recognized three recipients during our Plenary Session. We’re so excited about the opportunity to recognize some members of the Lucity family, and we wanted to share some highlights with you.
The Lucity Legacy Award was developed to shine a light on individuals or organizations within the Lucity family who continually demonstrate a desire to raise the bar. The recipients of the Lucity Legacy Award are leaving an impact on their organizations, their teams, or their communities and we are proud to acknowledge and celebrate these accomplishments. Award recipients will be recognized annually at our Annual Conference & Training, and a plaque of recognition will hang at Lucity Headquarters.
We are pleased to announce some important moves to best address Lucity’s growth to date, and realize our optimistic outlook. New titles and refined responsibilities have been assigned to the following key personnel. Continue reading
As previously announced, the Lucity Mobile 2.0 application for iOS will require SSL with TLS 1.2 starting next week. In addition, SSL must be configured to support (perfect) forward secrecy using the Elliptic Curve Diffie-Hellman (ECDHE) key exchange. This requires cipher suites installed on Windows Server to support this key exchange. The order of the cipher suites will also affect whether perfect forward secrecy is supported.
If you have any questions or need help figuring out whether your servers will support the new requirements, please contact Lucity Support.
Users of Lucity Mobile for iPad or iPhone with Lucity 2016 or Lucity 2016r2 will receive an update next week which requires TLS 1.2. These new requirements are necessary to meet new Apple requirements. There is no backdoor or work around. Lucity Mobile Server must be deployed with SSL and must support the TLS 1.2 protocol. We announced this in a previous blog post but want to put out another warning to make sure everyone is ready!
Microsoft Windows Server 2008r2 does not enable TLS 1.2 by default. If you have Lucity Mobile Server deployed on a Windows Server 2008r2, you must take manual steps to enable TLS 1.2 on these servers. This article contains some details about the steps to enable TLS 1.2 on Windows Server 2008r2.
Please see the post discussing the forward secrecy requirement as well. This is also a critical requirement for iOS clients.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact Lucity support.
