Fast, easy, and secure access to all your applications through one secure dashboard. Unlike some other “one password” tools, users are never privy to the underlying passwords.
Get alerted instantly if someone is trying to break into your firm with notifications around irregular times, locations or repeated failed password attempts.
Unauthorised password reset emails can be diverted to your nominated password manager, preventing users from circumventing the policies you’ve put in place.
Practice Protect tracks every access attempt to every application, so you have a complete log of who accessed what, from where.
Non-technical practice managers can grant, change and revoke access to all or some applications with a single click, potentially saving hours per month.
We set everything up for you and provide clear training for you, your IT company and your team, so you can start to reap the benefits.
Users gain access to applications via industry-standard SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) Technology - without having to log in with a multitude of authentication codes.
We have a well-staffed, dedicated support team, with a Net Promoter Score of 86, a First Call Fix rate of 44%, and an average time of 4 hours to resolve all support requests.
To enforce cyber security best practices Practice Protect has Multi-Factor Authentication via a second code, sent directly to your phone or email address for ultimate security.
Geo-locking blocks all logins from overseas scammers (or from specific countries) and lets you customise access for all users including applications, access times and locations.
No need to change the applications you use – Practice Protect is compatible with Xero and more than 50 popular accounting applications (plus thousands of nonaccounting apps).
For example, restrict offshore workers to the specific IP address of their office or BPO location so they can’t access your accounts outside work or via personal devices.
Some accounting firm owners and managers mistakenly believe, “We already have a password management tool… we’re covered.” This is not the case.
There are a number of ways in which Practice Protect has been designed to address the specific issues and challenges of the accounting industry in particular, including:
Passwords are never exposed to users, so they can’t be separately saved in a browser or recorded anywhere.
Unauthorised password resets can be quickly detected and prevented.
We integrate with all popular accounting apps including Xero, QuickBooks, MYOB, BGL, Class, FYI Docs, NowInfinity, Practice Ignition, SuiteFiles, Nimbus, Hubdoc (plus over 50+ others) via the SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) protocol. Essentially this means centralising all your multi-factor authentication into a single multi-factor doorway.
44% of support requests are fixed on the first call, and our average time to resolution of support issues is just 4 hours.
Many accounting firms employ team members outside the four walls of the main office. Practice Protect fully supports configurations to protect your data 24/7, around the globe.
Security software is only as good as the people using it. Just one untrained person can do severe damage. We provide accountant-specific training to make your team aware of current scams and how to prevent falling prey to them.
Accounting firms require a suite of legal agreements to comply with the law and prevent PI potential insurance claims from being rejected by the insurer. We supply you with those documents (valued at $10,000+).
CBP™ Certification is the Industry Standard for accounting and bookkeeping firms. Attaining this recognition demonstrates to the world your credentials as a responsible data custodian.
Some accounting leaders rightly view Practice Protect software as an important way to protect your firm from careless or malicious actions.
While this is true, it’s not just an “insurance” product.
The Practice Protect platform also drives efficiency and boosts your average hourly rate across your whole firm by:
Just these efficiency gains alone are worth more than the total cost, without considering all the other benefits.
“We were looking for a Single Sign On Solution. We have onboarded eleven staff in the Philippines and three staff in Australia. We wanted to make it nice and easy for our staff members to be able to get into the apps that they need on an everyday basis.
It just makes their lives so much easier and more productive. And we also wanted to have one hundred percent order protection for our clients – we didn’t want our staff members accessing clients’ ‘true’ logins.
We looked into a number of different products including Okta, Oracle SSO, Global Sign SSO, OneLogin, Visual Guide and Intermedia.
You have blown it out of the ballpark! I’ve been with PJT for the past six years and this has been the easiest out of any implementation we’ve been through. You’ve been a dream to deal with.”
“We have 34 staff and have been going from strength to strength over the past 25 years. Security has been a big challenge. We were hacked a few years ago. At the time we didn’t realise we were being hacked. It was happening for a few months.
We ended up losing $30,000. We have cyber insurance but that didn’t cover us for that particular event. So, it doesn’t matter how well you think you’re covered, you still need to have a whole lot of precautions in place as well. And one of the precautions we have now is Practice Protect.
Practice Protect has made life easier in other ways too. It’s great being able to switch off a staff member’s access when they leave. It’s like turning one key.”
“Most of our work is remote access so we need to be able to offer secure communications and work processes with our clients.
A friend’s firm was a victim of cybercrime. They lost their entire payroll. Their bank accounts were closed, and their business hobbled along while they got it sorted. It was very difficult for them.
As we have grown our practice, we have expanded our remote team. Both across Australia and overseas. We wanted something to be quick and easy to set them up. Equally, if a person moved on, we wouldn’t have to go into the individual software and change all the different passwords. We could just have one password for their Practice Protect account that immediately restricted their access to client accounts and files.
It made it easy for them and for us. Staff, clients and our business were all protected.”
“I first heard about Practice Protect at AccountExpo. I liked the idea, but at the time I was really busy, so I said, ‘let’s come back to this later’. Sure enough, two days later, all of our accounts got hacked into. We could have lost everything and everyone!
Getting started with Practice Protect was very simple. The thought of bringing on a new piece of software on top of our usual client work was a bit daunting, but those guys made it really nice and easy for us.
In addition to the peace of mind in knowing that everything’s secure, it just makes life so much easier. In the morning we can hit one button and we’re in. We can flick through bank accounts, access transactions, view supplier payments and so on. The amount of time that Practice Protect is saving us in a day, especially our bookkeeper, is amazing. We love it.
We’re excited to know that we can now sleep easy at night.”
“The shift to the cloud has been fantastic in terms of productivity, but it also brings risks as well.
The Practice Protect dashboard makes it easy for me to manage everyone’s logins. For whatever reasons someone needs to be disconnected because they leave or on holidays we can just switch them off. You can automatically save passwords the first time you use them. You don’t need to go looking up passwords every time you log in.
Our experience with Practice Protect’s support team has always been very good.
It gives me a lot of comfort and I can sleep at night knowing that we’re proactive managing those risks.”
“The move towards the cloud has been beneficial for our team and clients alike. We’ve won a number of awards for Excellence in Customer Service, Excellence in Digital Technology and Business of the Year. We’re really proud of that. And technology is something that sets us apart from other firms.
We found Practice Protect’s onboarding super easy. It’s powerful to be able to see who’s accessed what and when. The one-click staff offboarding is also very easy and valuable. And it’s now possible for us to work remotely. Practice Protect makes that easier and more secure.
As the owner of the firm, having the ability to control people’s access, when or where and what is very, very comforting.”
