Included in the new release are enhanced security features allowing management and control of all access devices. Users can restrict features on a per-user basis thanks to built-in multi-phase authentication management tools and enhanced feature-management capabilities.

The new tool has the ability to support single or multiple administrators, and lets businesses define multiple administrator roles and privilege levels to different administrators within an account.

Businesses can also completely customize account billing by using the advanced group-based billing feature.

Other features include a powerful multi-select user interface optimized for larger enterprises and an import/export account creation that allows quick account creation and setup from a single Excel spreadsheet.
