RSA Authentication Manager is a software program developed by RSA Security Inc. The most common release is 6.1.2, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The setup package generally installs about 40 files and is usually about 101.32 MB (106,238,464 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows Server 2003. While about 71% of users of RSA Authentication Manager come from the United States, it is also popular in Netherlands and Poland.
