Technical Information

Cybersecurity 2.0

by MACC’s Technical Support Team

At MACC we are always striving to do more to keep your CPNI (Customer Proprietary Network Information) secure. One way we are doing this is through the use of File Transfer Protocol with SSL Security or FTPS. FTPS uses SSL encryption to encode the data during transmission, similar to what HTTPS does for secure websites.

Now what does this mean for you? It’s an added layer of security! Not only is your data transmitted securely through the use of a unique username and password, with FTPS, your data is encrypted during the transfer.

FTPS is already in place for many of you, but we are working to put it in place for everyone. Your MACC Tech Support Team will be reaching out to you to ensure that your system is using FTPS and, if not, we will work with you to get it implemented.

Speaking of encryption, did you know Customer Master and Accounting Master have over 50 encrypted fields to enhance data security? Some examples of encrypted data include social security numbers, driver’s license numbers, and bank account information. The fields we’ve encrypted use sophisticated technology to protect your sensitive data from external threats and ensure only the appropriate members of your company’s team have access.

We maintain lists of encrypted fields for both Customer Master and Accounting Master on MACC’s Client Pages. These lists are available in each product’s section of our page for MACC fact sheets. To access the fact sheets, first sign-in using MACC’s Client Log-in page. Then follow this link to the fact sheet page. If you have any trouble accessing the page, please don’t hesitate to ask for help.

If you need assistance configuring your security settings in Customer Master to limit which employees have access to sensitive data, please contact your Software Support Representative. Your representative will be happy to help and is the best source of information on this important topic.

We take data security very seriously at MACC and are committed to offering our best to help you strengthen your defenses. If you have any questions or if there is anything we can do for you, please don’t hesitate to contact your MACC Tech Support Team and we will be happy to help! We can be reached at 402-533-5300 or via email at [email protected].
