Announcing new security and usability enhancements to Comotion Dash. Data protection is at the top of everyone's mind at the moment, and rightfully so. Increased threat levels from a number of sources, and increased legal requirements (in South Africa, Europe and America) mean that companies need to think about data protection now more than ever. To that end, Comotion is bringing the following security enhancements to Comotion Dash.
Multifactor authentication adds an extra layer of security when logging on to your Comotion account. You will be prompted to download an app to your phone that will provide a one time pin for every time you log in. If you would like assistance in setting this up, please contact your Comotion representative. Note that this will be enabled on all accounts from Friday 17th May 2019, so ensure you allow for some extra time on Friday to log in.
IP Address Limitation
IP Address limitation ensures that you can only get into your Dash account from certain IP addresses. This will generally be from your office IP address. It is highly recommended to make use of this feature as it ensures that only users from your locations can access the system. To enable this, send your IP addresses to your Comotion representative who will be able to set it up for you.
Large Query Support
Previously large queries would cause the frontend of Dash to fail. We have improved support for large queries via the sql-lab. Large queries can be run - although it may take some time to download the results. Downloads are limited to 50 000 lines. Should you want to gain access to the full dataset of a particular query, get in touch with your Comotion representative.
