And we're experimenting with a number of secure file access solutions in our development labs in response to the public S3-style open file read access point you highlight. I suggest deploying HCS behind a VPN when possible.
...from the beginning. We have built up a lot of content in HipChat, with it being a core tool in our distributed company model. While it is true that we didn’t need to move to Slack immediately, we felt it...
