Group Feature Upgrade Brings enhanced Security to Edge Management Platform

11 August 2020 - Geneva, Switzerland

SixSq is proud to announce the introduction of the Switch Group feature, in response to user requests to improve the management at scale of apps, edge devices and container orchestration engine resources.

As users scale their deployments and the number of edge to cloud resources, they need to maintain a crystal clear understanding of the state of each resource, and their security context.

As a result, the SixSq team has replaced and improved the previous Act As group feature with a more comprehensive and unified Switch Group feature.

New feature gives improved security

By deploying the new Switch Group feature, users only see the resources belonging to that group, not the resources from their personal account or from other groups they are part of. For example, when managing different customers, a user simply has to switch to a group and only resources related to that group will be shown.

Furthermore, this new feature also simplifies and improves security. A user can no longer create a VPN credential after switching to a group. Creating a VPN credential is only available via a personal account. This credential then gives access to all NuvlaBoxes belonging to the personal account, as well as those belonging to groups the user is part of.
