QR and Barcode Scanner for HyperMobile

HyperMobile now includes an in-app QR and barcode scanner on both iOS and Android devices.

Administrator-Controlled Whitelisting for HyperIntelligence

HyperIntelligence now supports whitelisting at the card level. This functionality gives administrators the ability to control the websites and applications on which a user can see a specific card. Whitelabeling allows organizations to better meet data privacy and security policies with their HyperIntelligence deployments.
