CDD Vault being a software as a service doesn't require any software to be installed on your local computer other than a modern web browser to access it.
Supported are all modern web-browsers on the major platforms Windows, MacOS, and Linux.
For your security, it is critically important to use an up-to-date browser to access the web. Not only do browsers continuously introduce new features to improve security, but old versions have vulnerabilities that are widely known and are being actively exploited.

CDD strongly recommends that you use one of these four browsers and verify that the auto-update feature is enabled. In addition to improved security, using one of these browsers will help ensure that the web applications you use load quickly and function correctly.
