Storage Made Easy recently rolled out an enhancement to its enterprise-grade security features by updating and enhancing its Two Factor authentication. This enhanced capability now works across all desktop and mobile applications.
For Personal Cloud Accounts the Two Factor Authentication can be switched on from the Cloud DashBoard. For Team Accounts the Admin user can force the use of Two Factor Authentication from the Security Options tab:
Two Factor options Supported are:
- Two Factor phrase delivery by email
- A preset phrase that needs to be entered
- Google Authenticator

Storage Made Easy recommends all traffic to be secured with encryption, as a matter of fact, by default we enforce the user of HTTPS communication. That said the software ships with self-signed certificates, to get you started, and when you first connect you will be greeted by an Invalid Certificate message in most browsers as self-signed is fine for pre-production, setup and testing but real certificates need to be added for production. In this post I will show you how to setup a free of charge, trusted certificate with our product.
