File Transfer

File Transfer Nudge

New ‘nudge’ button that allows a sender of a transfer to send a reminder email to a recipient to download their transfer.

File Shares

Create New File Share From Admin Area

An Admin can now create a file share directly from the admin area.

Manage Users From Admin Area

An Admin can manage the file share users directly from the admin area without having to give themselves permission to view the content of a file share.

New User Invite Options

When managing user access to a file share there are now two options:

Add – Shows existing user accounts in the tenancy
Invite – Allows you to add anyone

User Authentication

Two-Factor Authentication (SMS and Email)

Added Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) – SMS and Email.  MFA (Multi-Factor Authentication) adds an extra layer of security to our Login access option.

Banned Password List

Added password banned lists to prevent the top 100, 1000 or 10000 passwords being used.  This enhancement attempts to stop users using known predictable passwords.

App Passwords

App passwords allow you to grant access to an application or use the MFT RESTful API without having to use your primary login details. It also allows you to easily remove access to a third party app without having to change your password and restricts the access of the app to client requests only.
