Pangea joins GitHub Copilot Extensions Partner Program

We are thrilled to join the @GitHub Copilot Partner Program and launch the Pangea extension for Github Copilot, which @Microsoft CEO @Satya Nadella announced at the #MicrosoftBuild 2024 Keynote.

Millions of developers use GitHub Copilot to build applications and now they can easily add pre-built, composable security features like auth, secure audit logging, and threat intel directly to their apps via the Pangea extension.

It’s exciting for us to support developers who need to build apps quickly and securely via the combined power of #AI assistance integrated with our #composablesecurity platform!

🆕 Product Updates

AuthZ GA 🎉

We’re excited to announce that the Pangea AuthZ service is now generally available. With #AuthZ, you can centralize your authorization policy and reuse it across all of your apps, users, and services through our API. Evolve your policy from role-based to relationship-based seamlessly without rebuilding your app.

We launched our AuthZ service on @Product Hunt today! Click this link for a special offer 📣

Postman Collections

With our new @Postman Collections, you can get set up with and explore our APIs in minutes. These are generated directly from our OpenAPI definitions to ensure they are always complete and accurate. Let us know what you think!

AuthN - Remember My Device

Multi-factor #authentication is a key security feature but temporarily allowing a user to bypass it can make a better experience. With Remember My Device, you can skip a secondary factor after successfully authenticating previously.

Secure Audit Log - Config Cloning

The multiple configuration feature in Secure Audit Log allows users to create and manage multiple configurations within a single project, offering enhanced customization and control over logging and auditing settings. We just added Config Cloning to make it easy to create a new configuration that has a lot in common with one you already have.

Secure Audit Log - Export Audit Logs

We’ve added a new export API that allows you to request a bulk export of the Secure Audit Log records for a given period of time. The call is asynchronous and can take hours to complete depending on the number of records requested. When the request is complete, the download_results API is used to download the exported logs.

Vault - CLI Utility

The pangea-cli command line utility has been getting some love from the engineering team. The latest release improves messages, fixes some minor bugs, and sets the stage for some exciting upcoming features. Install and use it today, and stay tuned for more to come.

How to: Passkeys Next.js

In this tutorial, we show you how to leverage Pangea AuthN’s hosted pages to be able to quickly configure #passkeys without building all the cryptographic mayhem from scratch. Just start with a fresh new @NextJs app and implement passkeys in a few steps.

How to: Passkeys Django

In this tutorial, we show you how to leverage Pangea AuthN’s hosted pages to be able to quickly configure #passkeys without building all the cryptographic mayhem from scratch. Just start with a fresh new #Django app and implement passkeys in a few steps.

Do Passkeys Solve the Deployability Issue?

Managing traditional security tokens like RSA Tokens and Yubikeys has been cumbersome and prone to loss, complicating deployment for administrators and usage for users. Scaling up with hard tokens becomes impractical, while alternatives like security questions pose weaker defenses. #Passkeys offer a promising solution, balancing usability and security effectively.
