Digital Alert Systems announced availability of Version 4.3 of its Emergency Alert System software running on its DASDEC-II or One-Net SE EAS devices.
“Version 4.3 is a major release that further expands the security measures already built into the Version 4 software, including the addition of support for single sign-on (SSO) systems such as TACACS+,” the company said in its announcement.
SSO lets a user log in with one ID and password to any of several related software systems. The company said this is the first EAS system to offer that capability, which it said will be of help particularly to enterprise customers that manage dozens or hundreds of EAS devices.
“Whereas previously EAS system administrators were required to maintain different names and passwords for each device, now with SSO they can manage users’ access uniformly and grant or deny access to select individuals with the same tools they use for the rest of the enterprise,” it said.

For users of DASEOC, the company’s system for emergency operations centers, V4.3 also improves connectivity and support for the new FEMA Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) Cloud Server changes.
DASDEC-II or One-Net SE customers running Versions 4.0, 4.1 or 4.2 can download the Version 4.3 upgrade at no charge. Registered customers will receive an email with credentials; customers not yet upgraded to Version 4 should contact the company.
