Updating our Browser Security Protocols

Customer security and data protection is always a priority at Carta - this is why we are deprecating our support of TLS 1.1. TLS 1.1 is a HTTP security protocol for your internet browser that was released in 2006 and has known security vulnerabilities.

On July 7th, 2020, Carta will no longer be supporting, or allowing, our customers to access Carta with TLS 1.1.

You may be impacted if you are using a very old browser but can easily resolve the issue by updating your browser to the most up to date version.

CCL Compliance Certificates

CCL borrowers and Fund Admin can now submit compliance certificates in-app.

On a quarterly and annual basis, CCL borrowers must certify that they are in compliance with all required covenants in their Loan & Security Agreement by submitting a compliance certificate.

A Fund Admin (Operator) can complete the certificate and submit to the Borrower (Signer) for signature. A Borrower can either sign these submitted forms or fill one out, sign, and submit directly. Both an Operator and a Signer can retract unsigned compliance certificates (e.g. certificate was filled out in error or is no longer applicable).

Exercises Ledger & Managing 83(b) Elections

Today, all of Carta’s private, corporate customers have access to the Exercises ledger with 83(b) administration features.

Awhile back, Carta introduced the Exercises ledger. The ledger provided a view of all exercise requests across the company, along with simple filtering by exercise status and date range. We’ve spent some time gathering and incorporating feedback from our customers to provide an improved Exercises ledger with additional features. A few highlights are illustrated below:

Admins are now given a tab that filters for early exercises:

From there, admins can mark whether or not a shareholder chose to make an 83(b) election, and even send notifications reminding the shareholder to upload their 83(b) election form in Carta:

Additionally, admins can reject a submitted exercise request when reviewing the request from within the Exercises ledger:

Filtering by payment type is now possible - this should be especially useful for companies needing to process and accept wire transfers for exercise payment:
