Sharesight product updates – December 2023

by Ben Clendon, Head of Product, Sharesight | Dec 6th 2023

An engineer dedicated to security joined the team this week. I’m particularly excited by this new role as it represents both the culmination of 18 months of work focusing on certain aspects of our security posture, while also setting us up to pursue a number of security-based initiatives I will discuss in depth in the coming months. With the changing security landscape, driven in particular by some of the large Australian security incidents in recent years, having internal staff dedicated to our security over and above our network of third party security consultants sets us up well moving forward.

While on the topic of security, I’d like to take the opportunity to mention that those of you with Xero connections will need to enable two factor authentication (2FA) within Sharesight in order to continue utilising your Xero integration. This change will be rolled out over the next few weeks. Although this is a requirement imposed on us by Xero, I’m in favour of 2FA myself as it is a simple way to add a great deal of additional protection to your Sharesight accounts. We will of course be communicating with all those directly affected.

Note: If you use Google to sign in and have the toggle ‘Only allow Google sign in’ under Account preferences set, then you do not require 2FA.
