Next® tightens security, and eases the administration once again

In our ongoing efforts to makes Next® easy and secure, we take another crank at both.

Next® comes with built in permission control, and supports Enterprise Single Sign On using both SAML and OAuth.

Some of our components - such as document captures and REST APIs - today supports basic authentication (user id and password).

In an ever more connected world, we no longer consider this adequate. That is why we implement support for X. 509 certificates to secure the connections to Next®.

At the same time, we move the configuration and administration of document captures into the the Next® admin UI. 

The configuration of external connections, and other such sensitive configuration, is protected by strong AES 256 encryption.

Finally, running Next® in Secure setup, will require all code extensions to be signed with a valid certificate.    

Future enhancements

We will continue to bring enhancements to this area.
