Today we are announcing a new feature, called Trusted Browsers, which is designed to simplify the process of accessing items from your frequently used devices. With a Trusted Browser, you no longer need to rely on the sender providing a secure link in order to access new shared items. You’ll still need your username and password to access SendSafely, but once authenticated you’ll be able to access any item that anyone has shared with you.
We recently had a customer ask us for help integrating our Dropzone Widget into one of their website forms, which use Marketo Forms 2.0. One of their requirements was that they need uses to attach a file containing sensitive information when submitting the form. Our secure upload widget seemed like the perfect fit, and it turns out integrating with Marketo was pretty easy. We’ve decided to share the code here for other Marketo customers that may want to do a similar integration.
Earlier this month we released a new feature that lets you configure the timezone used for showing date and time values related to your SendSafely items. The default setting for your account can be set from the Edit Profile screen when logged into your SendSafely account.
If you’re on the road and log into SendSafely, you might notice that we will detect any change in your local timezone and ask you if you want to automatically update your SendSafely timezone settings to match the local time. If you choose Yes then your profile will be updated until your log back in from another timezone, at which point we’ll ask you again.
Starting today, you can use the Edit Profile screen to set a custom default expiration time (in days) for new sent items.
This new setting only controls the default value used when sending a new item. You’ll still have the same options you previously had for changing expiration settings on individual items, either from the Advanced Options section of theSend Items screen or from the Item Status page.
We are happy to announce that the SendSafely Zendesk App is now available in the Zendesk Marketplace. Our killer new app lets you add support for large file uploads and adds file-level encryption to your Zendesk Help Center.
If you are a Zendesk user, you’ve undoubtedly run into cases where customers need to attach large files to a support ticket. Unfortunately Zendesk file attachment limits cap out at 20MB, regardless of what plan you are on…until now. If this has been a pain point for you in the past, you are going to love our new app.
Each year, CIO Review Magazine assembles a panel including CIOs and CEOs of public companies, industry analysts, and members of the magazine’s editorial board in order to identify new companies that have achieved significant momentum in the marketplace. Over the course of several months, the team analyzed over 300 companies with a specific focus on the cyber security solutions sector. Through nominations and consultations with industry leaders, CIOReview editors chose the final list.
Over the past year, we’ve gotten requests from customers wanting an easy way to integrate SendSafely upload capability into their website so they can receive files from visitors. Today, we are happy to officially release two new integration widgets designed for just that: the SendSafely Dropzone Widget and a Secure Upload Widget for Zendesk.
Here at SendSafely we’ve been using ReCaptcha for a while now to protect unauthenticated portions of our website that may be susceptible to abuse by bots (the most notable of which is our Personal URL feature).
This month we upgraded all of our ReCaptchas to the new and improved “NoCaptcha ReCaptcha” API (officially known as ReCaptcha v2). Migrating existing ReCaptcha’s to the new v2 API was surprisingly easy. Unfortunately, our ReCaptcha code is not something we look at all that often, so we first needed to re-familiarized ourselves with the v1 implementation. As it turned out, we only needed to change a few lines of code to make our old code work with the new API. We thought we would post a summary of the steps needed to help those that haven’t made the switch but are thinking about it.
Here at SendSafely, we’ve advocated the use of Content Security Policy and have been running a fairly strict CSP in block mode for over a year now. With the release of Google Chrome version 40 this week, we wanted to highlight one important breaking change that resulted in the need for us to adapt our CSP to work with the new version of Chrome.
Last week we officially rolled out a new look and feel for SendSafely.com. Not only did we make significant changes to our marketing website, but we made some significant updates to the user interface for the SendSafely App and SendSafely Enterprise Platform.
