Government agencies, with their strict security requirements, often face difficulties in fully embracing DevSecOps practices. Balancing the need for rapid feature releases with robust security measures poses a challenge. Feature flags offer a promising solution in this context. By seamlessly integrating into DevOps and DevSecOps pipelines, they can empower government agencies to effectively manage feature releases while maintaining high levels of security.
Adding new features to existing applications used to mean that code pushed into production automatically updated the entire app. This raises security risks to the existing application, because a single bug could have catastrophic consequences. This risk can be reduced by implementing a secure feature management architecture that allows code updates with increased flexibility and the power to easily switch between versions.

What is 2FA?
2FA is a way of granting access to users only after presenting two separate pieces of evidence (factors). One of these factors is usually a password which the user should know and the other factor something they have or even something they are. This way you can be sure that only knowing your password won't be enough for an attacker to gain access to your account.
How does 2FA work in ConfigCat?
