We made extensive security improvements across the board wherever we do password validation (there's actually quite a lot of them!). So deployments will be more adequately protected against brute force attacks. A more public release including this functionality will be coming early 2014. Thanks for helping us keep PingFederate more secure.
We let the winner select their favorite headphones from Amazon.com. Brian chose the excellent Audio Technica ATH-M50x Professional Headphones.
If you have an idea to share, post it to our Ideas forum. You might be the winner next time.
