Tailscale August Newsletter
👉 We’d love to hear your thoughts on Tailscale. Filling out this feedback form helps us build a better product for you and other users.
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:

From the community
Second time Tailscale has been featured on the NASDAQ tower, with thanks to Redpoint featuring us in their InfraRed Report.
Great article here from Brian Moses about offsite backups.
From the team
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.
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
Tailnet lock lets you verify that nodes can only be added to your tailnet when those nodes are signed by trusted nodes in your tailnet, which you manage.
Check out the story behind our release of tclip, an open source tool for sharing snippets of text with other folks on your tailnet.
This article discusses how Mercari, a Japan-based e-commerce marketplace, was able to cut the number of user-related VPN issues from 1-2 per day with their old VPN to almost zero in the months since they started using Tailscale, freeing up significant bandwidth for more important priorities.
