March 2021 Product Updates

This month we’ve added a few new features to make working in your virtual data room easier and more secure—optical character recognition (OCR) and two-factor authentication (TFA).


March Improvements at a Glance

In this video our Product Education Manager, Ronen Segall, walks you through what’s new in the Firmex virtual data room with newly added features like OCR, and additional TFA options for securing access to your VDR.

Optical Character Recognition

Firmex Search now supports optical character recognition. Once enabled, OCR is able to recognize characters and numbers in your scanned legal documents, contracts, and financial statements. OCR is free to use.

Two-Factor Authentication with Google Authenticator

We are introducing a new method of two-step verification through the Google Authenticator app. This gives administrators an additional, more secure method of securing your VDR. For users, it’s a more secure and easy to use way of authenticating your identity than SMS text message and email.

Firmex Tip of the Month: Excel Import Template

To save time and reduce errors when adding users to your project, check out our User Import Template. If you find yourself adding more than a few users at a time, the template is a great time saver. Or, instead of adding users manually, you can send the template to external parties to fill in, and then import it into your project.
