Century Business Solutions Announces TLS 1.2 Compatibility for Sage 100
Technology-based merchant services provider Century Business Solutions is proud to announce that its EBizCharge payment gateway provides TLS 1.2 compatibility for all versions of Sage 100.
In 2015, the PCI Security Standards Council mandated that merchants must discontinue the use of TLS 1.0 by June 2018. Transport Layer Security (TLS) ensures privacy between communicating applications and their users on the internet. The TLS 1.0 encryption standard no longer meets minimum security requirements due to vulnerabilities in the protocol that cannot be fixed. TLS 1.0 and 1.1 are known to have security vulnerabilities and carry a significant risk of data breaches.
As of May 2, 2018, Sage Payment Solutions does not provide TLS 1.2 support for Sage 100, versions 4.5 and below (formerly MAS90 and MAS200). Users of this software would need to upgrade to a newer version of Sage 100 and pay an upgrade fee to maintain TLS 1.2 compliance.
To maximize payment security and protect users from security vulnerabilities, the EBizCharge payment gateway provides TLS 1.2 optimal security for all versions of Sage 100.
EBizCharge for Sage 100 is fully PCI-compliant and allows users to securely process credit cards in Sage 100 without having to upgrade their current software or pay an upgrade fee. EBizCharge uses tokenization and encryption to prevent card information from being stored it its original format, drastically reducing legal and financial liabilities for businesses.
The application applies payments to invoices and updates the A/R and G/L automatically. EBizCharge also pulls line-item details from each transaction to secure the lowest payment processing costs for businesses. Users of EBizCharge for Sage 100 benefit from the elimination of double data entry from their accounting workflow and have reported saving hours every week on data entry.
EBizCharge for Sage 100 also integrates with EBizCharge Connect, an online customer payment portal that allows customers to securely log in and pay outstanding invoices from any device. The payment portal automatically syncs paid invoices with Sage 100 and sends payment reminds to customers via email.
