Desktop Client 3.8.7.0
  1. Fixed the issue where downloading and opening a protected document from the Chrome browser's download bar was not opening in the native application, as expected.

    2. Before the change: When a user downloaded an HTML-wrapped protected file in Chrome and attempts to open it directly from the download bar, it was opening in the browser, instead of opening locally in the native application.

    4. After the change: Documents opened from the Google download bar will now be redirected to the local agent to open them directly in the native application.
    5. Expected Behavior: For this feature to work, the Policy Server needs to be reachable and JavaScript needs to be enabled in Chrome.

Desktop Client 3.8.5.0
  1. Added support for Exchange Shared Mailbox groups in the Email Protector for Outlook.

  2. Enhanced the user experience of the Smart Sharing feature by switching ON the Smart Sharing button every time a new email is composed.
    1. Before this change: If a user switched OFF Smart Sharing in an email and sent it, the next time he/she composes a new email, Smart Sharing would still be OFF.
    2. Since Smart Sharing is switched OFF only in the rarest of cases, this would require the user to remember to switch it ON when composing the next email.

    1. Before the fix: A protected document could not be opened in Offline mode i.e. without connectivity to the Policy Server, if the Policy Server ID contained an ampersand.

Desktop Client 3.8.4.0
  1. Fixed the issue in Outlook Email Protector when emails were Smart Shared, where recipients were not getting registered as new users if their email ID contained a single quote.
Lite for Windows 3.3.2.0
  1. Enhanced support for Agentless access by preserving the HTML Wrapper even when the document is accessed using an agent.
    1. Before this change: Whenever a user having a Seclore agent opens a protected document that is HTML Wrapped, the HTML Wrapper is removed, before it is opened.E.g. if a protected document sample.docx.html is opened using the Seclore Lite, the HTML Wrapper will first be removed, and the document will be renamed to sample.docx before it is opened
    2. After this change: When sample.docx.html is opened, the HTML Wrapper will NOT be removed, and the document will open in Read-only mode.
    3. This document can be shared further with anyone who can easily access it without an agent installed.
    4. Preserving the HTML Wrapper helps to keep it more accessible to external users who can directly open it in the browser without an agent.
    5. Only if the user edits and saves the document, the updated version will be saved without the HTML Wrapper.

  1. On a periodic basis, Seclore will discontinue support for older and obsolete platforms and applications to ensure that the risk to enterprise data is always under control.
    1. Older versions of Operating Systems and Office applications that are no longer being supported by Microsoft are often a security threat to the enterprise.
    2. At the appropriate time, Seclore discontinues support of such obsolete software components to ensure that they do not pose a threat to the enterprise data security program.
  2. Added system controls in the Desktop Client to discontinue support for obsolete Operating System versions.
    1. Discontinued support for Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows Server 2003.
    2. Any Desktop Client installed on either of the above-mentioned operating systems will not get upgraded automatically by the regular patch upgrade mechanism.

Seclore 3.10.3.0
Desktop Client 3.8.3.0
  1. Enhanced support for Agentless access by preserving the HTML Wrapper even when the document is accessed using an agent
    1. Before this change: Whenever a user having a Seclore agent opens a protected document that is HTML Wrapped, the HTML Wrapper is removed, before it is opened.
    2. E.g. if a protected document 'sample.docx.html' is opened using the Desktop Client, the HTML Wrapper will first be removed, and the document will be renamed to 'sample.docx' before it is opened.
    3. After this change: When sample.docx.html is opened, the HTML Wrapper will NOT be removed, and the document will open in Read-only mode.
    4. This document can be shared further with anyone who can easily access it without an agent installed
    5. Preserving the HTML Wrapper helps to keep it more accessible to external users who can directly open it in the browser without an agent
    6. Only if the user edits and saves the document, the updated version will be saved without the HTML Wrapper
  2. Enhanced the new end point SDK released in version 3.8 to support integration with applications that run as a system process
    1. New integration mechanism for protecting documents on the end point by applications like DLP and file scanning tools that run as background process at the system level.
    2. Provides a better user experience by making the logged-in user the File Owner.
  3. Fixed the issue where an unnecessary error message was being displayed when opening unprotected text and OpenOffice documents in Microsoft Office applications.
    1. Before the fix: When a user attempts to open an unprotected text or OpenOffice document in Microsoft Word or Excel, an error message is displayed saying 'Seclore does not support viewing and processing of '.TXT' format in Microsoft Office'.
    2. Simple workaround: Just clicking on the 'OK' button opens the file as expected.
    3. After the fix: No such error message is displayed.
  4. Minor UI alignment adjustment in the 'Seclore It' Outlook permission labels and checkboxes.

    2. The Seclore agent's language is set during the installation process.
  3. Fixed the issue where the Seclore icon in the menu bar was not showing as expected when the system restores from sleep (hibernate) mode.
  4. Enhanced the message displayed to the user to set Seclore as the default browser.
    1. Setting Seclore to the default browser helps to automatically open HTML-wrapped protected files in the native application, rather than redirecting the HTML file to the browser
    2. The message displayed in the system prompt sounded a bit alarming to certain users who would hesitate to allow Seclore to be the default browser
    3. The new message is much more intuitive, and users should have no hesitation to allow Seclore to be the default browser.

    4. Other mandatory requirements of at least 1 upper-case character, 1 special character and 1 number remain unchanged.
  2. Added a new column in the Agent Installation Report to indicate if the Desktop Client is running on an obsolete version of the Windows operating system.
    1. Before this release: The Seclore Desktop Client now has the capability to automatically de-activate itself if the Windows operating system (OS) version is not supported by Seclore.
    2. Microsoft periodically discontinues the support of older Windows versions and stops providing patches and security updates.

    4. Seclore now ensures that agents installed on very old and obsolete versions of the Windows OS are automatically de-activated.
    5. These desktops cannot be used to open Seclore-protected documents and will not be upgraded using the standard patch upgrade mechanism of the Seclore agents.

  4. Fixed the issue where the content in the HTML Wrapper was not being displayed in the user's language when the protected file is accessed in the Edge or Internet Explorer Browser.
    1. Before the fix: Users with Spanish language enabled in their Edge or Internet Explorer Browser, were seeing the English version of the content in the HTML Wrapper.
    2. After the fix: Spanish users will now see the Spanish version of the content in the HTML Wrapper, even when accessing it from Edge or Internet Explorer.
