We are very happy about onboarding our first corporate clients who’ve been with us all along and finally received a tailored solution to keep their business files secure in an even more convenient way. Our future plans include expanding Admin Panel functionalities with different user management and activity log features, organization-wide security settings, SSO, and other enterprise-level attributes. Our main focus is to provide business admins with tools to ensure end-to-end security of their corporate data,” says Aivaras Vencevicius.
