We realize that many people are concerned
about the security of information communicated in an online environment. Nothing has been
more important in the development of this service than the security of our system and the
sites hosted. If you are considering setting up your own web server, take a look
at why Account Wizard is vastly more secure.
Account Wizard offers the following security features -
All access to account information is performed through our
SSL (secured socket layer) server. This server ensures that all login information, credit
card information, account information, as well as all administration functions are fully
encrypted from our servers to the browser. SSL is the recognized secure method
for data privacy over the Internet.
Companies wishing to accomplish Account Wizard functionality, without using Account
Wizard, must install a dedicated Internet connection into their local network. This
connection allows the entire world access to the local network. Improper security
configurations could provide "back doors" into the local area network with
access to all local information.
Account Wizard Subscribers do not have these concerns. Account Wizard handles all hosting.
Subscribers provide their customers with accurate, up to date information, while keeping
their local network secure. Account Wizard is vastly more secure than an
"in-house" hosted web server.
The integrity of your accounting data should be left to
the publisher of your accounting system. This is the reason why the Account Wizard Data
Agent program is read only when accessing your accounting data. The Account
Wizard Data Agent WILL NOT alter your accounting information.
As a matter of design, the Account Wizard Data Agent
transfers small portions of your accounting information. The Data Agent DOES NOT transfer
all of your accounting information. As an example, customer address and contact
information is never transmitted. By limiting the amount of information,
security is further increased.
Agent Password Access
The Data Agent requires a login and password entry before any configuration changes
can be saved. Only authorized users can adjust the operation of an Account
Wizard Web Site.
Data Agent File Encryption
All data transmitted from the Data Agent to
our Master Servers is fully encrypted. Account Wizard Subscribers can define a Data Agent
Encryption Key exceeding 40 characters to ensure the most accurate security available. Subscriber
information remains encrypted at all times, even while it is stored on our servers.
Case Sensitive Passwords and Locks &
All account passwords are case sensitive
ensuring the highest possible number of combinations. Additionally, Account Wizard
Subscribers can define the number of times a client may attempt to enter their Customer
Code and Password. These features disable attempts to guess the correct
customer code and password by trying all possible combinations (usually referred to as
"brute force attacks").
We appreciate the value of your data. This is
why we have listed some of our security features above. To further enhance the security of
Account Wizard, and your data, additional security features that have been implemented are
not being made public, but you can be assured they are working to keep your data as safe
