Progress Unveils Sitefinity 10

May 09, 2017


Progress announced the release of Progress Sitefinity 10, the latest edition of its web content management system, popular for its ease-of-use and rapid time to delivery. With the release, Progress delivers new user authentication and security capabilities making social authentication on websites a capability available to any organization.

Enabling visitors to log into websites using their existing social and email IDs including Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Twitter, Github, and LinkedIn has been proven to increase website registrations and conversions. With the Sitefinity 10 content management system (CMS), Progress says it has radically simplified the authentication process. With out-of-the-box capabilities for third-party authentication for major social and email accounts, Progress now makes it easy for any organization to use social logins to drive the success of their digital marketing initiatives.

Progress has also added significant new security capabilities to the Sitefinity 10 CMS, with a standards-based implementation layered on top of OpenID Connect and IdentityServer3, making enterprise-grade identity management and security accessible to small and large organizations alike. IT administrators can rely on Active Directory Federated Services (ADFS) or LDAP to automatically authorize website users by mapping active directory roles to Sitefinity content management roles. In addition, Progress Sitefinity 10 CMS is the first solution to empower digital marketers to work with Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) images, without the inherent security concerns associated with embedded malware.

Additional features new in the Sitefinity 10 CMS include:

  • Sitefinity Site Shield: Website managers can invite stakeholders to secure websites that are under development, without having to grant back-end permissions. 
  • Export / Import Site Data: Developers can streamline the development of new websites by creating starter kits and moving website components, together with their data, from one Sitefinity CMS instance to another.
  • CDN Support Improvements: Businesses can now serve the latest content to their visitors by implementing a cache-control header strategy with full control over the cache settings for site images and pages delivered by their CDN.
  • Azure Cloud Support Improvements: Progress Sitefinity 10 CMS enables developers to take advantage of the latest Azure SDK to deploy Sitefinity websites in the cloud.

Progress Sitefinity 10 CMS is available immediately.
