Is there a work around for Google's "Less Secure" app designation of Filemaker?

Google's mail server (both the regular gmail and whatever they use for google apps for business) regularly blocks email coming from Filemaker using the send via smtp server unless the account owner has turned on Google's "Allow less secure apps" setting.  Has anyone found a way around this or is Filemaker working with Google so that Google does not consider Filemaker to have such "Known security problems"?

 

here is what the notice from Google looks like:
