Google API Change impacting Google OAuth Authentication - March 31st
Posted by Jim Giseburt on 26 March 2019 01:03 PM
In an effort to improve data privacy and security, on March 31st Google is implementing changes to some of the policies within their API ecosystem.  These changes will affect customers that use Google OAuth as an authentication method with Cipafilter.

Prior to that date, customers should upgrade the firmware on their Cipafilter to version 11.  Once the firmware has been updated, customers can then make the necessary changes within their Google domain to allow the continued use of Google OAuth as an authentication method with Cipafilter.  The configuration changes are detailed in the Cipafilter version 11 manual under Google OAuth.  Customers are advised to consult Google OAuth initial setup and pay particular attention to enabling the People API.

Please contact Cipafilter Support with any questions that you may have.

Upgrade automation

Opt in to automatic beta firmware upgrades from your Cipafilter interface.  Firmware upgrades are now faster and safer, and incur less downtime.  Don't miss out on the latest features, fixes, and updates for your Cipafilter.  Sign up now for the opportunity to earn Cipafilter Rewards towards your next hardware purchase.

Trouble-alert notifications

The health of your appliance is paramount to keeping your network running smoothly, and you don't always have time to log in every day to check.  We've introduced a new notification called Trouble Alerts — in the event that your Cipafilter detects an issue during one of its routine health checks, you can now have it send an e-mail to you (or your ticketing system).

New hardware support

We are pleased to announce the release of new hardware for purchase or lease.  We've updated the existing CF350 models and released an all new CF450, so if you've upgraded your bandwidth or are considering doing so, now is a great time to look at new hardware options.  We are also introducing a new, smaller unit for organizations with lower bandwidth needs and fewer...

New Telephone System
Posted by Jim Giseburt on 04 January 2019 12:48 PM
We changed to a new telephone system right before the holidays. It was on the evening of Friday, December 14. We were hoping for a seamless transition. It seems to have happened.

With the new system in place, we are going to begin taking advantage of some of its features. However, with a new system and new features, come changes to some old habits. To dial support, instead of selecting extension 300, please choose option 2 from the auto-attendant menu. This small change is simply due to how the system handles day/night/holiday greetings on the support mailbox.

One small change for now... Nothing else has changed...

Move along...

Warm Regards,

Your Cipafilter Team
