File Uploader - cyber security & automation add-on

File Uploader will protect your data by encrypting your payment file – as soon as it is created. And once encrypted, the file may only be decrypted as part of the BACS transmission process through iConnect.

In addition, it automatically imports the file into your profile when you start the submission process rather than having to manually browse for a file to upload on your network.

Is your payment data secure?

IT security has fast become one of the most important aspects of data protection for many companies.

However, one area that is often ignored is the protection of BACS data after it has been exported from your database/payroll system and before it is submitted to BACS, through iConnect.


No matter how tight the security surrounding your application is, once data has been exported to a plain text file, it can be open to a security breach.

More alarmingly, the data could be fraudulently edited prior to uploading to iConnect.

Use our File Uploader add-on as a precaution to avoid these issues and protect your cashflow from malicious attacks.

How it works?

01. Monitor

Monitors predefined folders.

02. Polling

Instantly detects the file in those folders.

03. Encrypt and FTP

Encrypts the file and FTPS to your dedicated folder on APT's server

04. Upload and send

The encrypted file is ready to be submitted to BACS via iConnect.
