    Two-factor authentication

    Agencies can now use their email as a secondary validation source for two-factor authentication. We recently spoke to agencies with Drupal 7 websites about two-factor authentication. We found 65 per cent of customers were aware of two-factor authentication. Customers appreciated the opportunity to find out more. When we engage with agencies with Drupal 8 websites in the coming weeks we aim to ensure they also have the information to implement two-factor authentication to protect their websites. More information about two-factor authentication.

    Quarterly Reviews of websites subscription

    We will review website usage plans on a quarterly basis. This will enable us to be more proactive in ensuring you are on the appropriate subscription level.
