Blocked faxes are logged to the history record (see image below) with status of ‘blocked by prohibited content’. This new feature facilitates compliance with organizational policy and security measures. high resolution faxing.

This ensures RightFax Connect users will have access to jobs, reports, and associated administrative tasks such as preferences, fax and DID management, users and blocks.

RightFax 16 EP6 has an enhanced RightFax Synchronization module that now support TLS and certificate-based communication to LDAP sources. This provides the highest level of security to ensure that all information passed between RightFax and Active Directory will be encrypted and protected.

Automated Library Documents
Many companies need to include specific text (like a legal notice) on all outbound messages. However, this text is often too long for cover sheets. RightFax 16 EP6 eliminates this issue with the new Automated Library Documents feature that automatically inserts required text between a cover sheet and fax body pages .
This will ensure that companies can use cover sheets for traditional purposes while maintaining the integrity of the fax body content and thus allowing for the insertion of required text.

Prior to RightFax 16 EP6, RightFax Connect customers didn’t have the ability to route faxes at a specific time or range. A new feature called Time of Day Routing provides the ability to route faxes at a specific time or range. This makes it easy to schedule large faxes after business hours, thus ensuring maximum channel availability during normal business hours.

This allows administrators to easily detect or identify suspicious activities such as excessive login attempts. Administrators receive prompt notification of suspicious activities.
