Mastercom 9 System Update


The new version 9.0 supports the new CSIOnet Web Services connection to CSIOnet which replaces the Juniper SSLVPN connection and the SMTP/POP email protocols. There is no waiting for the Juniper software to make a connection to CSIOnet. The Web Services connection is a more reliable secure connection with no delays.
