ReloSpec Images Option Getting More Secure

This blog update is for those ReloSpec customers using the Images option.

Data security has always been an important part of the Relocation Specialist (ReloSpec) software.  Due to recent concerns about the security of the uploaded image files today we are announcing changes that are coming for those using the Images option which will be just as easy to use, but more secure.

What will change is the location of the uploaded image files and the way they are sent to others requiring a copy of the file.  The Images option has always included a way to email the file(s) to someone else.  The page that was sent included HTML links that allowed the user to view the file online.  That option is going away in favor of sending the file as an attachment.

And, viewing an uploaded file by the ReloSpec user will change slightly.  You’ll still click a button to view it, but rather than viewing the file within its folder, a copy of the file will be put into a temporary folder with a GUID-style ID number.  There will be no chance of someone being able to access uploaded image files.

In addition, certain ReloSpec forms include a photo (image) of the agent.  Those forms will be updated at a later time.  You may continue to use such forms; for now they just won’t include the agent’s photo.

We expect to have this security upgrade completed by tomorrow (Saturday, September 15th).
