SafeMail Version 3.2.2 Released 

2020 has been a challenging year with the onset of COVID-19. Schools ended abruptly and when they did return, there were still a lot of unknowns and new processes being put in place. This year we have seen a shift towards online learning in many of our customers. This not only means more emails and files to scan, but also, more emails and files being sent later at night and on weekends.

On the SafeMail side, we have seen extraordinary changes in the volume of items and the types of items that we are monitoring to keep our children safe. Compared to the 2019 back to school season, we have seen an approximately 275% increase in the amount of emails and files to be scanned due to the increased focus in online learning. This significant increase necessitated our efforts to be dedicated to performance, scalability, and reliability.

Back to School Year over Year Graph

In this most recent release, we have made some performance improvements to manage the increased volume in 2020. Some of these fixes include faster performance on our servers and improving our services so that existing files will only need to be scanned and processed through our filters again if they have been modified since the last scan. Newly added files are not affected by this improvement and continue to be scanned and processed through our filters.
