Sage Business Cloud Enterprise Management Help Series: How to create a bank

As with my previous blogs we are going to tackle an issue that is raised often with support.

This guide aims to provide an easy way to create a bank but will not discuss each and every option, tick box and field available on each tab. Instead, it is for you to find an existing similar bank that you could easily copy.

Sage & the Dangers of Ransom-Ware

We have recently had a number of incidents reported to the Acuity Support Desk, where an aggressive Ransom-Ware (Virus) Program has, unfortunately, breached some sites’ Network Security/Anti-Virus Software, and incapacitated their Production Servers, including their Sage/SQL Servers.

These Ransom-Ware Programs, such as Crypto-Locker, are designed to encrypt and lock files, until a fee/ransom is paid for the decryption key.  The source of these programs are unauthorised entities and with whom any kind of business is discouraged.
