For this project, an Outlook plugin was created that is an extension to the software “mSafe,” which Motiv offers. MSafe is a secure file exchange platform. That is, a person can share files with another person through this platform. This is done through many encryptions in both logging in and storing and sharing files. IT Rockstar Bryan’s role was to develop a plugin where people could use mSafe via outlook. Just as someone adds a file as an attachment to an email, this can now be done through the mSafe outlook connect plugin. In addition, Bryan provided support on other projects (small and large) as needed.
