BGL Software Update: Multi-Factor Authentication

By December 18, 2018 March 12th, 2019 CAS 360, Homepage, News, Simple Fund 360

We at BGL would like to announce the release of Multi-Factor Authentication in CAS 360 and Simple Fund 360.

Keeping our client’s data safe is a top priority at BGL and MFA is the second step in our security upgrade.

Over the past few weeks we have also encrypted both the CAS 360 and Simple Fund 360 databases.

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) means our clients will need 3 pieces of information to log into our applications. Client’s will need Username, password and a unique code sent by SMS to their mobile or generated by the Google Authenticator (recommended option).

This technology simply makes it more difficult for unauthorised people to access our client data.

At this stage MFA will be optional for BGL clients, but he highly recommend the set up.

This will give you the opportunity to check out the technology. Then, you can work out how to implement it on your business.

BGL will make MFA mandatory in Quarter 1, 2019.

For Simple Fund 360 clients who use PLS, SuperStream or TBAR, MFA is mandatory for all ATO online applications.

While some clients may think this is a pain, we think it is only of benefit. “We are all responsible to ensure our client data is as safe as we can possibly make it. MFA combined with all the other security processes we have in place, gives us the best opportunity to do this.
