Houston, TX (PRWEB) January 27, 2016
cPanel, Inc. is thrilled to release cPanel & WHM software version 54, which is now available in the RELEASE tier.
In a departure from the usual version number, the company has dropped “11” from cPanel & WHM releases. This change provides increased clarity for its partners and users while more accurately reflecting the product’s progression.
cPanel has expanded its authentication system to include OpenID Connect for better integration across Manage2 accounts and cPanel & WHM servers. Hosting providers can also sign directly into cPanel & WHM via their preferred, compliant authentication service.
Perfectly linked and logged in
WHMCS is one click away with tighter integration functionality in the WHM interface. Not to mention, with single sign-on, hosting providers are automatically logged into the WHMCS billing system. WHMCS is also an OpenID Connect-compliant authentication service. That means customers can log into cPanel & WHM via a WHMCS button on cPanel's login interface.
Two times the protection
With the latest release of cPanel & WHM, cPanel is ramping up customers' ability to secure their accounts and servers. Hosting providers can rest easy knowing that two-factor authentication, through Google Authenticator, adds an extra layer of protection when logging on to cPanel & WHM interfaces.
“In combination, these features give our customers the flexibility they need to fill in the gaps and provide a complete experience for their customers," said Ken Power, cPanel Director of Product Development. "A single login to access all cPanel & WHM services lowers costs and the maintenance burden for hosting providers, while two-factor authentication provides peace of mind that they are protected from the malicious hacking now part of the modern internet.”
