What is/are: New in NSS 9.61 SR4 (Release Notes)


  • Stability, Performance, Scalability
    As a service release NSS 9.61 SR4 adheres to the principal of offering improved function in the existing feature set - several potent gains have been made. Of particular note are the speed of information display and ability to handle ever larger data sets in the NSS Console - the unique self-service data management portal further confirming it's capabilities in petabyte environments.
  • Quota notifications with NSS Console links - Multi-byte character support
    Before NSS 9.61 SR4, customers managing paths that contain multi-byte characters and using Internet Explorer as their default web-browser were unable to use NSS Console links in quota notification emails. This was related to the way in which paths containing multi-byte characters were encoded by NSS and then interpreted by Internet Explorer. Now customers in Japan can direct their users to NSS Console, via IE, when they reach a quota threshold.
  • Notifications when files are blocked by file allow policies
    Customers have long had the possibility to trigger email notifications to users when the user attempts to save a file prohibited by a File Block policy. NSS 9.61 SR4 introduces the possibility to send similar notifications when an attempt is made to violate a File Allow policy. File Allow, where specific file types that can be saved are specified, is NSS' most restrictive form of content control.
