(2015-08-05) MIM 2016 Has Hit The Market Shelves And Is Now Available

Posted by Jorge on 2015-08-05


Microsoft has released the successor of Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2 (FIM 2010 R2), Microsoft Identity Manager 2016 (MIM 2016).

MIM 2016 offers the same capabilities as FIM 2010 R2, with in addition:

  • Strong focus on hybrid identity (on premises and in the cloud)
  • Support for hybrid reporting from MIM included in Azure AD reports
  • In addition to Self-Service Password Reset, Self-Service Account Unlock is also supported
  • The Self Service Password Reset portal supports Azure multi-factor authentication (MFA) in the authentication gate
  • Privileged Identity Management controls and manages administrative access by providing temporary, task-based access to sensitive resources eliminating the carte blanche administrative access coveted by cyber attackers. In addition, Privileged Identity Management extracts and isolates administrative accounts from existing Active Directory forests.
  • Support in Certificate Management for REST API access
  • Certificate Management has support for multi-forest topologies, a Windows store app for virtual smartcard and certificate lifecycle management, updated events and troubleshooting capabilities
  • Support for:
    • Windows 8.1 with Internet Explorer 8 and higher
    • Windows Server 2012 R2
    • SQL 2014
    • Outlook 2013
    • System Center Service Manager 2012 and 2012 R2
  • The deprecated features are still deprecated, but are still available in MIM 2016 as mentioned by David Lundell
