Massive preview options = more productivity and more security

file_preview

Being able to preview many different file types directly from within Onehub is a great way to boost your productivity and keep your data more secure.

Get more done
Having to switch between multiple apps to preview a document is a giant roadblock to productivity. That’s why Onehub supports previews of 35 different file types — so you don’t have to switch between (or even install) different apps.

Need to review a Word document, a video or even a CAD file? Do it all (and way way more) from within your Onehub Workspace. Just launch it from Onehub and start looking at it right away. Even better, you can do all your reviewing on your mobile device or tablet in Onehub, so you can get even more done when you’re on the go.

Better data protection
Onehub’s expanded preview capabilities also helps keep your data more secure. With our granular permission settings, the files you share can all be viewed within Onehub and can’t be altered. Your team can see your documents — but they can’t change them.

Additionally, by keeping tight permission controls and everything viewable within Onehub, you limit how your files can be shared, so you know who has access to your work.

Here’s a list of all the file types you can preview while in Onehub. Read More…

Hackers target law firms

network_securityIt’s not just big companies that face serious threats from hack attacks — the law firms that represent them are banding together to share information as they become the latest targets for hackers and online criminals. According to a report by The New York Times:

Law enforcement agencies have long been concerned about the vulnerability of United States law firms to online attacks because they are seen by hackers and nations bent on corporate espionage as a rich repository of company secrets, business strategies and intellectual property.

We’ve written before about how Onehub makes security a top priority for our online file sharing and collaboration. With bank-level encryption, robust permission controls and audit trails, Onehub goes to extreme lengths to protect your data.

A number of law firms have selected Onehub not only because of the enhanced content protection, but also because we offer firms enhanced services like client portals and virtual data rooms.

If you’re a law firm looking for a better way to protect your clients and your client’s data, contact us to see what Onehub can do for you, or try Onehub for free.

Even though we are in frothy times, raising money is still a grind for startups. If you are a founder, you want to focus on your product, not manage minscule logistics of the pitch process.

Startups need more than just secure and easy online document sharing. They need to share the same information with multiple potential investors — without those investors discovering who else is in contention. And sharing your pitch doesn’t have to be a one-way street! There is data to be mined from the way potential investors interact with your materials that Onehub can help you surface.

If you are a startup founder, Onehub can make the whole process of raising money easier and more productive, whether you are seeking your seed or your Series A – Z: Read More…

Even Better Document Previews

Document previews are one of the most important features of Onehub. We have one of the best document previewing experiences around, but that didn’t stop us from making it even better. Today, I’m excited to announce the launch of our brand new document previewer.

PDF.js

Our new previewer is HTML-based, rather than Flash-based. This not only means that you no longer need to have Flash installed but, crucially, you can now view any Onehub preview from your mobile devices. In addition, this allowed us to implement accurate, text-based searching of your documents directly from the preview. As a side benefit, selecting/copying/pasting text is easier now as well. On top of these technical improvements, we also revamped the interface and increased the fidelity for all previews. Here is a full list of the improvements you can expect from the new Onehub previews:

  • HTML-based
  • Mobile-friendly previews
  • Full-text search from your previews
  • Higher fidelity previews
  • Improved design
  • Automatic zooming
  • Jump to a specific page in your preview
  • Support for native browser full screen modes

The new Onehub previewer puts us ahead of the curve and we hope it delights our customers as well. If you have any feedback, tweet us @onehub or email us at support@onehub.com.

Q – How did you get into long distance running? 
A – About 9 years ago, a year after graduating high school, I started to develop a (somewhat) regular fitness routine. Lifting weights and strength training were my focus, but I would add in about 20 to 30 minutes of pavement or treadmill running a few times a week.

For several years, I would run the same distance of about 3 to 4 miles each time. It wasn’t until about the end of 2011 that I began to push my distance further. I started tracking my runs with a smart phone app that stores various bits of data such as distance, duration, mile times, altitude, calories, etc. I would use the data as motivation to push myself on subsequent runs.

In the fall of 2012 when I moved to Seattle, I discovered some great areas for running. I spent a lot of time improving my distance by running around Green Lake as well as areas of the Burke Gilman Trail. I also did some research on midsole running techniques, proper footwear, and nutrition. By 2013, I was comfortable running 8 to 10 miles with an average mile time of about 8 minutes. Read More…
