Expand, hire, work from home and guard against threats with more trust and less risk. That’s the power of Practice Protect in your business

Do you integrate with popular accounting apps?

In a word, yes.  Practice Protect allows accounting teams to quickly and easily access all their cloud apps via one master password (plus a single two-factor code, if desired).

Where possible, we’ve also built deep integrations (the technical term is via SAML/OpenID) with many popular accounting apps that reduce the need to manage so many multi-factor codes.

We integrate with all popular accounting apps including XeroQuickBooksMYOBBGLClassFYI DocsNowInfinityPractice IgnitionSuiteFilesNimbusHubdoc (plus over 50+ others)

How are you different from conventional “password manager” apps?

In today’s digital age, password management alone is not cybersecurity. An effective strategy must be comprehensive in nature, spanning from technology and application access to compliance and people. The risk vectors within your business are many, and that’s why we built Practice Protect. With advanced protection that’s built for the modern accounting firm, Practice protect is a superior all-in-one platform to control access to client data, manage risk, and stay compliant. The result: More control over systems access within your company, and greater peace of mind for your clients who put their most sensitive data in your hands.

Doesn’t our IT firm handle Cyber Security?

Data Security isn’t just a tech issue. It’s a staff issue, a legal issue, and a client issue. All of these issues form the basis of the three Hubs in Practice Protect.

The Access Hub, the Advisory Hub, and the Compliance Hub all work together to help small businesses deal with these.

While data security isn’t just a tech issue, we still work closely with different IT providers to provide an overall solution for our mutual accounting firm clients and make sure that our solution works for our clients’ IT environments.

Will your solution conflict with our other IT infrastructure?

Generally, Practice Protect will “play nice” with your existing IT infrastructure.  As part of our onboarding process, we conduct an analysis to ensure your configuration is appropriate for your firm and your IT environment. 

Practice Protect also offers email protection for all our clients, and we integrate with Microsoft365 and Active Directory.

What onboarding assistance do you offer?

There’s nothing worse than subscribing to a new software product, only to find that it chews up valuable internal resources to install and configure.

That’s why we provide concierge onboarding to all our new clients.  This includes:

  • an analysis of your IT environment
  • configuration of the app to suit your needs
  • scheduling and delivery of team training

All of this ensures you start to see the protective and efficiency benefits of Practice Protect as soon as possible.

How much does your solution cost?

Practice Protect has adopted simple and transparent pricing that allows teams of any size to access our platform, cost effectively.

Thanks to our huge user base of over 15,000+ accounting team members, we’re also able to include several valuable bonuses with every subscription, including:

  • Unlimited Team Training
