🆕 Product Updates

AuthZ Beta

Authorization is one of the most powerful but underused tools in most apps. With our new AuthZ Beta, you can start with simple Role-based Access Control (RBAC), introduce relationships between resources, and build into a full Relationship-based Access Control (ReBAC) or stop anywhere along that path. Get started now and let us know what you think.

Secure Share Beta

Secure Share API offers secure file sharing with encryption via Vault keys and password-protected files, allowing document organization, authenticated share-links, and restrictions on file types and sizes. It’s also integrated with File Scan to block malware. Check out the Beta today.

File Scan on GCP

The File Scan service is now generally available on organizations provisioned on GCP. This service allows a user to upload file objects and execute a malware scan using either Crowdstrike or ReversingLabs as the provider. File scanning is different from File Intel in that scanning uses static analysis engines against the file object to determine the intent and capabilities of that file object, whereas File Intel can only tell you the reputation of a previously known file.

Sanitize Beta

The Sanitize API helps you handle documents safely without worrying about whether they are malicious, contain dangerous URLs or harmful embedded content, or contain exploitable file format irregularities. Integrating with Redact to ease your mind about PII disclosure and compliance with regulatory standards such as HIPAA. Integrate with Secure Share for easier storage, organization, and secure document sharing. Try the Beta now!

Add "Login with Passkeys" to your React.js app in < 2 mins

Passkeys, passkeys, passkeys! Everyone's talking about them. With Amazon rolling out passkeys last year and Google encouraging users to make them the default authentication method, it raises the question: How do I add them to my app?

SAML Explained: The Foundation of Secure Authentication

As businesses and organizations expand their online presence, the need for robust authentication mechanisms becomes more crucial.

Secure by Design: An introduction for developers

Secure by Design is a set of principles and approaches, rapidly gaining public interest, promoted by a large international coalition of respected government agencies. This puts security at the forefront through practices such as applying security at every stage of the SDLC. There are large benefits to this for software developing organizations, developers, and users. This article introduces Secure by Design and describes its importance.

Creating and Running Secure by Design Software

Explore Secure by Design software development, emphasizing early and continuous security integration in the SDLC. Highlights include best practices from NIST's SSDF and OWASP's ASVS, focusing on secure coding and development lifecycle security, to foster resilient and trustworthy software.

The Developer’s Case for Secure by Design

In today’s ever-evolving threat landscape, where cyberattacks are becoming more sophisticated, there is a crucial aspect to consider: security. This article outlines the tangible benefits of Secure by Design for app developers (e.g., reduced security risks, lower costs, improved efficiency, boosted customer trust, increased opportunities), discusses the benefits of earlier security, and briefly outlines today’s app threat landscape.
