We know a thing or two about testing securely, and we know that testing behind a firewall is crucial for many of our users. That's why we're excited to announce that we just released Sauce Connect 4, a brand spanking new version of our secure tunneling app. Sauce Connect creates a secure tunnel between your firewalled app and the Sauce cloud, enabling you to run your tests on Sauce while keeping your data secured. Data transmitted with Sauce Connect is encrypted through industry-standard TLS. So what's new with v4? To start off, we rewrote the entire app from the ground up to make it simpler and better performing, especially under high loads. That means your tests run faster than ever, even if you're running large numbers of tests. And it's more reliable than ever. The rewrite gives SC broader support for a wider range of web standards. Sauce Connect 4 also supports working entirely through a proxy, if that's what you're into. And of course we squashed some bugs.
We'll be holding an online workshop on Tuesday Mar. 11th, 11AM PST about testing behind a firewall, where we'll cover best practices and strategies for testing apps behind a firewall and discuss everything you need to know about Sauce Connect.
