A few months ago, I had the opportunity to play with Zoom Apps. Before I dug in, I assumed Zoom would give an app a little information about an active or scheduled meeting, a little more on the user profile, let you manipulate a meeting, and call it a platform. Frankly, I couldn’t have been more wrong.
The ESP32 and ESP8266 microcontrollers are powerful. Using their built-in features, these microcontrollers can wirelessly operate robotics, motors, or sensors from simple web applications. Luckily, putting them online securely is easier than ever with ngrok.
The last month has been busy at ngrok! We’re tremendously proud to announce we’ve raised $50M in funding to grow ngrok’s API-first ingress as a service platform for developers. We’ve also focused on improving security with Dashboard SSO and Identity-Aware Ingress, developer experience with new documentation, and contribute to the community with webhook security and an open source firewall toolset for go
Today, ngrok is growing faster than ever. To meet that increasing demand, we’re thrilled to announce our first-ever fundraising round of $50 million. We’ve raised this round to scale ngrok’s business across the board and to dramatically increase our investment in delivering new products for ngrok developers.
Today, we are adding additional visibility for users logging into your application through our edge. Now you can see your application users in the ngrok dashboard and view their identity details. In this blog, I'll explain why this feature is a huge win for security and how you can take advantage of it today.
Webhooks are the foundation of modern API development. They enable us to react to changes in our systems, an incoming text message, a successful payment, or that latest pull request no matter our stack. While webhooks are universal in concept, they are unstandardized API contracts with few organizations paying attention to their design, security controls, and overall operational experience.
This month, we focused in two areas you asked for (a lot) and filled in some other bits and bytes to give you a hand: productivity features to launch your tunnels quickly with style and security features so you use ngrok in your org with IT and security approval.
While ngrok has made it easy to launch your fantastic new app online in one line, bad actors have also used this capability to launch their own attacks. Blocking and eliminating this malicious behavior is key to what we do and we've taken another step to protect users without breaking legitimate applications.
Launching the ngrok security and trust portal is another step to towards transparency in how we approach the security of the ngrok service, our shared security model, how we handle data, and the steps we take to protect it.
Last week, we fixed a multi-tenancy bug in the ngrok dashboard’s caching layer that unintentionally leaked data between a small subset of ngrok accounts when they viewed the ngrok dashboard. This bug affected less than 5% of ngrok’s active users. We have contacted all accounts affected by the bug directly via email with instructions for remediation.
How to run ngrok with Slack webhook authentication? How to use GitHub OAuth? How to serve files? This cheat sheet shows the main commands! Print it and hang it on your wall or download it and keep it on hand.
Learn how to use ngrok Cloud Edge middleware to address app requirements – such as observability, load balancing, compression, and security – fast and without the burden of running and maintaining a middleware infrastructure.
ngrok Secure Tunnels provides a simple to enable remote access to systems. With one command— i.e. `ngrok http 80` — you can share your apps, APIs, and systems with the world, without complex network configuration, reliability issues, and NAT. However, with power comes great responsibility so let's add OAuth 2.0
From the earliest webhooks at Twilio to every major SaaS platform, webhooks have become a defacto standard in web development. But before we can use them well, we have to use them correctly. Let's look at what that takes.
I love the phrase "Happier with Zapier" because I can get rid of those menial, repetitive tasks like updating spreadsheets but Zapier only works with cloud-based systems. Or does it? Check out what we can automate by adding ngrok and a remote API.
