Security Enhancement

Released February 28th

Eptura Workplace has improved the security of our application by applying rate-limiting using Cloudfare against our new user sign up workflow which could be accessed by an individual with an active customer URL such as Rate-limiting blocks users, bots, or applications that are over-using or abusing a web property and can stop certain kinds of bot attacks.
