🚓 2 Factor Authentication

We are thrilled to announce a new security feature! To further protect your account and data, Brainboard now allows you to enable or disable Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) at your discretion.

2FA adds an extra layer of security to your account, ensuring that you're the only person who can access it, even if someone knows your password. It's a simple, effective way to prevent unauthorized access.

We strongly recommend enabling 2FA to keep your Brainboard account as secure as possible. After all, your peace of mind is our priority!

Stay safe and keep building amazing things with Brainboard! 🚀

⮐ ⮑ Drift Detection + new CI/CD engine

We're excited to announce that the CI/CD Engine has been improved with new features to improve infrastructure management for our users.

One of the most exciting new features is the drift detection capability, which allows engineers to stay on top of their infrastructure by notifying responsible parties in case of drift, scheduling workflows for better optimized timing, and maintaining order while another workflow is active.

Other new features include:

  • Multiple workflows: With Brainboard's CI/CD Engine redesign, you can now create multiple workflows, providing greater flexibility and customization options for designing and implementing projects.
  • CI/CD workflow templates: With Brainboard's CI/CD Engine, you can create workflow templates that you and your team can reuse to streamline your workflow and optimize your infrastructure management.
  • Scheduled workflows: Brainboard's CI/CD Engine allows you to schedule workflows to be launched at any desired time. This ensures that workflows are being executed at the best optimized timing for your infrastructure management needs.
  • Notifying on pipeline failure: Notifying someone when drift is detected on cloud infrastructure can help prevent issues such as security vulnerabilities, compliance violations, and performance problems. By detecting drift early and addressing it promptly, IT teams can investigate and remediate any issues before they cause substantial damage, ensuring that the infrastructure remains secure, reliable, and operating as expected.
These features provide greater flexibility and customization options for engineers when designing and implementing projects.

We understand the importance of ensuring infrastructure security and reliability, and these new features were designed with that in mind. We hope that our users will find them useful in streamlining their workflow and optimizing their infrastructure management.

🔐 Manage auth with Keycloak*

*Keycloak is an open-source identity and access management solution. It is designed to provide a centralized location for managing user authentication and authorization. Keycloak provides features such as Single Sign-On (SSO), user management, and access control for applications and services.
The feature being mentioned in the statement is the integration of Keycloak with Brainboard, a cloud management solution. With this integration, users of Brainboard have the ability to use Keycloak as the authentication system for their Brainboard account. This allows users to use their Keycloak credentials to log in to Brainboard, rather than having to create and manage separate login information.

By using Keycloak as the authentication system, Brainboard users can take advantage of Keycloak's advanced security features and user management capabilities. This can improve the security of the Brainboard platform and make it easier for users to manage access to their cloud resources.

In summary, the integration of Keycloak with Brainboard allows users to use Keycloak as the authentication system for their Brainboard account, which improves security and user management capabilities.
