A quick note about secure browser connections to agileBase:

You may have seen mention of a security vulnerability on the web that affects ‘SSL’ encrypted data transfers, which is a standard encryption mechanism that all secure websites and apps use, including agileBase. If not, here’s a news article describing the issue:

The good news for agileBase users is that SSL3 (the affected encryption mechanism) has been disabled on our servers since before the vulnerability was announced, as it is an old protocol that newer web browsers don’t need to use. In fact that only browser that needs SSL3 for encrypted transfers to function is Internet Explorer 6, which agileBase doesn’t support anyway. Hence agileBase connections are not susceptible.
