I notice the road map items and warning from Aggregate (see below).
My questions are:
1. Do you intent the next release of Aggregate and Collect to have
secure to and from device communication?
2. Does the warning in Aggregate still apply? If so, does this mean
that the transmissions will be secure, but the data on the server,
once stored, may not be?
Thanks in advance for clarifying and for creating an excellent
