August News

It’s been a busy August so far here at Tailscale. Earlier this month, we were at Black Hat Las Vegas, and enjoyed seeing all the attendees & customers who stopped by to say “hi” and learn what’s new. Check out some snaps from the event below. In product related news, we introduced user and group provisioning for Azure AD to help admins manage onboarding and offboarding of team members. We also launched Tailnet lock, which helps with node management on your tailnet. We’ve got more product updates as well as some community contributions to share this month. Let’s jump in:

Sync Azure AD users and groups to Tailscale

When you use Tailscale with Azure AD, your users login and authenticate with your existing identity provider (IdP), which means that if you remove a user from Azure AD, they’ll no longer be able to log into Tailscale.

Introducing Machine Explorer, now in Tailscale’s VS Code extension

Tailscale for VS Code just got a major upgrade, bringing you the ability to explore, edit, and transfer the files on any of the nodes in your tailnet that you can reach through Tailscale SSH
