Stax Streamlines DNS Configuration for Customers, and Other Highlights from July

This month we released features to cater to enterprises with more advanced requirements, and to further secure our platform to comply with industry standards.

DNS Resolution for Advanced Networking Needs

Customers can now use our Networks feature to more easily connect on-premises infrastructure with AWS resources, allowing for more complex networking configurations. This is part of an ongoing effort to cater to those with more advanced networking needs.

An enhancement to our Networks feature, this is an out-of-the-box solution that streamlines the process of configuring DNS, an essential step in all networking projects. The feature makes use of Amazon Route 53’s Private Hosted Zones, allowing customers to retain their existing on-premises servers while taking advantage of Amazon Route 53.

Learn more about how the DNS Resolution feature works over in our documentation.

Identity Service Enhancements for Security and Reliability

We’ve also applied hardening and configuration updates to the Stax Identity Service, improving security and reliability for customers. This is part of our commitment to achieve compliance with enterprise-grade security standards.

We have implemented a Web Application Firewall (WAF) to protect the Identity service, leveraging AWS WAF, and token session times have been reduced from 30 minutes to 15 minutes.

For more details about how we use the WAF, check out the Docs.

Those were the highlights from July, but remember to check out our Changelog for more.
