Redesign and New Features

It's been a while since we last blogged, but rest assured we've been hard at work improving Tinfoil for you by leaps and bounds. Today, we're incredibly excited to launch a brand new, easier-to-use, much more powerful UI for our leading web application security scanner. In addition to the UI refresh, there are a slew of new features in this release.

We'll be writing about each of these new features in turn over the coming days, but feel free to log in and play around if you're the kind of person that doesn't want to wait. We've changed the way we do things a little bit, but we think it's going to be much more intuitive. We're excited, in particular, about the activity feed that gives you all the information about what's been happening with your sites' security at a single glance.

Setting up authentication for the sites you scan with us is a lot easier now, and we've added a few new authentication methods. We have some new addons we're excited about as well, including our API and Jira Integration.

Many of our customers also kept requesting the ability to add additional collaborators because they didn't need all the features of a higher plan, but had a slightly larger team - we've now incorporated the ability to add additional collaborators a-la-carte.

The website should be more performant, be more visually pleasing, be easier to navigate and, most importantly, make it simpler to find and fix vulnerabilities in your own websites. We think we've achieved that with this release, and we hope you'll think so too. :)

As always, please let us know what you think, and send any and all feedback our way. Look out here for new blog posts coming to describe each of our new features in greater depth, and we still have some things cranking in our labs that we're super excited about. 

Incidentally, you may have noticed we've moved our blogging platform as well, to be a little cleaner and make the posts easier to understand and parse. Let us know what you think! We'll be in our support chat, or you can email us, or you can find other ways to contact us on our contact page.
