ACH Universal encrypts account numbers using the most secure symmetrical encryption algorithm available (AES-256). AES is used by the U.S. and Canadian governments as their standards for encrypting data.
Hashing - Insertion/change protection
Each transaction record is hashed--and the hash is encrypted--to insure that records remain unchanged and that no records are inserted by circumventing the system.
Encrypting Account Numbers - Protects account numbers
The account number is hashed in the transactions table and the profiles table (if used).
(Treasury Software recommends both)
Click on the Settings tab and then 'Encrypt Database'
The Database Encryption window will be displayed.
If using Excel, csv, SQL Server or QuickBooks Online - click the Encryption tab.
--Either feature may be enabled at any time.
--To maintain security - once turned 'On', the features require Treasury Software Support to turn 'Off'.
--These features are available in all platforms (Desktop, SQL Express and SQL Server), as well as all editions.
--QuickBooks Online encrypts their data so the bank account numbers will not show in Reports in Treasury Software. In order to see account numbers, it will be necessary to Unencrypt the database, which will require an Admin passcode from Treasury Software.
Reminder: All Treasury Software security is applied on an account by account basis.
