WESTBROOK, Maine (8/14/08)--Synergent, which provides technology, business and service solutions to credit unions, installed another new Bowe Bell & Howell BH 2000 and two Xerox DocuTech 128 high speed color laser printers for statement processing. The new machines have a high level of security, according to Synergent. To protect data and information, credit union data files are exchanged in a protected environment through a secure server. Files are encrypted with a 128-bit SSL secure certificate. “We store back-up of each credit union’s data on magnetic tapes. These types are encrypted using FIPS 140-2 validated 256-bit AES, the new federal standard for encryption,” said Tim Gilman, Synergent operations manager. Otis FCU, located in Jay, Maine, is using Synergent for statement processing. Because its inserts are printed at Synergent, the credit union pays no courier costs for the service.
