IJsselstein, 26 September 2014 - Motiv has implemented a large number of improvements in Motiv mSafe, the platform for the fast, simple and above all extremely secure exchange of files. The files can now be divided into categories in a 'workspace'. The possibilities for searching and filtering files have also been expanded.

The basis of Motiv mSafe is a workspace that an organization creates for example per project, client or contact person and is only accessible with a user name, password and a one-time code. Users then upload files to the workspace.

"Within a workspace there is more structure to be made by hanging" labels "on documents", says Rohald Boer, Business Line Manager Application Development at Motiv. "In this way, the uploaded documents can be divided into categories, which increases the overview within a workspace. In addition, we have expanded the search options. It is now possible to search and filter documents based on file name, category, date of upload and the user who has uploaded a file. "

Authentication with softtoken

Another important improvement in Motiv mSafe is the expansion of the authentication options. In addition to the familiar method - in which the user receives an SMS code for logging in after entering a user name and password - authentication with a 'soft token' on the user's smartphone is now possible. This app generates a new code every thirty seconds, allowing a user to login to mSafe with his username and password.

"This method also works if there is no network connection, " says Boer. "The user no longer has to wait for the arrival of an SMS code." When linking the authentication app to Motiv mSafe, a 'key' is placed on the user's smartphone to ensure that there is always a code is available, also in 'offline mode'.

Continuous expansion

Since the introduction of mSafe in February 2013, Motiv has already expanded the functionality of the platform in many ways. For example, in a previous release the possibility has been added to upload multiple files at the same time. In this release, the next step is taken in ease of use by offering users the possibility to download multiple files simultaneously. Cached documents are automatically packed in a zip-file. New reports have also been added that offer the manager more insight into the use of mSafe. For all updates, they are available immediately and at no extra cost to all mSafe users.
