Recast Software’s Privileged Access Management Products
Reason Categories for Privilege Elevation
As a Privilege Manager administrator, you can now require end users (and those generating activation codes for end users) to choose a reason for requesting temporary privilege elevation from a list of pre-set categories. This provides admins and security teams more clarity related to elevation requests and eliminates data entry inconsistencies or ambiguity related to free form data entry. The new pre-set list of reason categories includes Application Installation, OS Configuration Change, Device Installation, Security Concerns, and Troubleshooting, but you can also edit these categories or create custom categories for your own use cases. In addition, you can now sort, filter, and report on these categories within your Privilege Manager reports.
To learn how to configure reason categories for Target Groups, see Edit Client Settings.
Enhanced Reporting by Activation Type and Domain
Activation Type: The Agents page and Activation Codes reports now display an Activation Type that differentiates elevation by ‘activation code’ or ‘self-service’ for greater visibility into which elevations were completed by whom.
Domain: The Agents page, Activation Codes reports, and Retrieved Passwords reports now display Domain information for a specific agent. If you have multiple domains, this allows you to determine the domain in which the elevation took place. Agents can also be sorted by domain.
New Recast Builder Actions for Co-managed Work
To simplify co-managed work, the Resource ID or Collection ID builder actions will return the set of workloads within Configuration Manager and Intune, making it easier to identify which workloads are happening in which environment. With greater insight into IT management authority for devices and users, you can leverage this information to easily kick off another event within Intune.

Recast Agent Performance Improvements
Speed, performance, and reliability is always top of mind in our releases. We’ve significantly improved the speed at which the Agent service connects after an Agent restart, reducing restart load time by more than 80%.
