We’re excited to let you know that your Galaxy applications just got more secure, thanks to Two-Factor Authentication on all Meteor Developer Accounts (MDA) and App Protection on Galaxy Hosting.
Here’s a very brief summary of what we’ve added:
App Protection on Galaxy Hosting is a new feature in our proxy server layer that sits in front of every request to your application. This means that all requests across servers are analyzed and measured against expected limits.
If a type of request is classified as abusive (we’re not going to go into the specifics as to how we determine this), we will stop sending these requests to your app, and we start to return HTTP 429 (Too Many Requests).
The benefits of Two-Factor Authentication are obvious to all. Now it’s available for all Meteor Developer Accounts, and therefore all applications deployed to Galaxy.
To enable Two-Factor Authentication on your Meteor Developer Account, please login, then click on Security on the left hand side, then “enable”
