Share Article

Tangent Systems' DocuTran product now includes AES encryption for secure processing of financial transactions. The encryption feature allows all potentially sensitive data and images to be automatically encrypted. The encryption feature is now included as a standard DocuTran feature. Optional integration to derive encryption keys from external sources is also available.

Tangent Systems®, an established provider of high-speed document and transaction processing software, today announced the addition of secure encryption to its flagship DocuTran product. With this enhancement, all potentially sensitive data and images can be encrypted automatically to protect from unauthorized access. DocuTran employs 128, 196, or 256-bit AES encryption, providing both fast and secure access to data and images.

“Today, corporations are subject to an unprecedented level of scrutiny with regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, the Patriot Act, CISP, and PCI,” said Steve Mack, President of Tangent Systems. “And beyond the risks of non-compliance, are the very real dangers of fraud and theft, plus the resulting public relations damage.”

The encryption capability is included as a standard feature in DocuTran. “Given the sensitive nature of security issues today, we decided to build this capability into our base software," said Lisa Ellingwood, Vice President of Sales, Tangent Systems. “With the speed of current computers, the encryption and decryption is invisible to the user. All U.S. and Canadian DocuTran customers with a maintenance agreement now have access to this feature, with the right to upgrade their licenses free of charge.”

The encryption feature is implemented in a seamless fashion, with encryption and decryption performed automatically. Additional options are available to manage encryption keys or derive them from another source, such as a corporate key bank. In such implementations, encryption keys may automatically be changed as often as daily to protect against compromised keys.

Export of this feature outside the United States is subject to U.S. Government regulations.
