Security
Feature Payee Guardianship Description
Multiple Office Location Capabilities X X Office locations can be established within an organization and employees can be assigned to those locations. Employees within an organization will access the same system and data regardless of the office location in which they reside.
Secure System Access X X Exact offers Secure Sockets Layer technology (SSL) which enables encryption of sensitive information during online transactions, provides unique, authenticated information about the certificate owner, and verifies the identity of the certificate owner when it is issued. True 128-bit SSL Certificates enable every site visitor to experience the strongest SSL encryption available to them.
2-Factor Authentication Future Future Two-factor authentication is a system wherein two different factors are used in conjunction to authenticate. Using two factors as opposed to one factor generally delivers a higher level of authentication assurance. Two-factor authentication typically is a signing-on process where a person proves his or her identity with two of the three methods: "something you know" (e.g., password or PIN), "something you have" (e.g., smartcard or token), or "something you are" (e.g., fingerprint or iris scan). Exact will use USB tokens as the second factor of authentication for those organizations that need that level of security.
