PaymentStream AFT introduces 2-Step Security. 2-Step Security is a method of authenticating a user by confirming two factors of authentication:
*A token is required to access the AFT application from PaymentStream
You have the choice between whether you’d like to use a soft or hard token.
A soft token is installed on the user’s trusted device, Smartphone, tablet or iPad. The device must first have an authenticator app installed for the security process to work. Our recommendation is to install the Google Authenticator app. With a hard token, you have a physical device that you can obtain from Valley First.
Forced Mandatory Approval
As an additional security feature, PaymentStream AFT offers forced mandatory approval. As such, for organizations with a combined monthly limit beyond a set threshold, second approval is mandatory. For combined monthly limits below the set threshold, you have the ability to request mandatory second approval as an additional security measure.
