Protect your accounting practice

Client 1099s, W-2s, and K-1s are prime targets for hackers.
But now you can stop them from stealing or viewing client files.

Protect your accounting practice

Your client data is a target for hackers.
‍But now you can stop them from stealing, viewing, or decrypting your files.

You already know the risks.

in February 2019, hackers began trying to access TurboTax accounts for individuals using stolen credentials leaked on the dark web. What are you doing to protect yourself from hackers trying to access your clients' data?

Hackers and cybercriminals never stop finding new ways to profit from other people’s private information. Keeping software and systems up to date, relying on strong passwords, or using a VPN while traveling won’t keep your most valuable files out of the hands of a determined attacker.

Introducing a better way to protect valuable files

Why do data breaches continue to happen?

Most operating systems and security solutions focus on “keeping the bad guys out” and don’t provide users with solutions for keeping files protected when someone breaks in. Smart hackers know that accounting and tax professionals have access to troves of sensitive information on their clients which can be easily exploited or sold for profit.

If you think of your client files as precious jewelry, you would naturally consider protecting them in a safe. While governments and large companies have often hired teams of cybersecurity experts to create incredible last lines of defense, we believe at Atakama that everyone in today’s world needs unbreakable “jewel safes."

After all, your reputation doesn't just depend on reducing your client's tax liabilities, it also depends on your ability to keep their sensitive financial information safe and sound at all times, even after returns are filed.

Your client files need a last line of cyber defense

Atakama is a new, easy-to-use solution to give your business-critical files a last line of cyber-defense that will frustrate hackers and insiders like nothing ever seen before. Here’s how we make your “jewelry safe” uncrackable:

  • Atakama scrambles your company’s or your family’s private files using military-grade AES-256 bit encryption
  • Atakama breaks the key to unlock the 256-bit encryption into multiple shards that are then distributed to multiple physical devices that either you own or to devices owned by your co-workers or a family member
  • Just as multiple key-holders must come together to unlock certain safes in the real world, multiple devices (up to two or more) must physically come together to unlock private files that have been scrambled by Atakama

The chances of a team of hackers descrambling a 256-bit encryption is low. The chances of a team of hackers unscrambling encrypted data and stealing all of the multiple “key-holding” devices is infinitely low.

If you can drag a file to a folder, you already know how to start securing your files with Atakama. Opening encrypted files normally requires setting and entering a password for each one. Atakama’s technology doesn’t rely on any passwords or codes. Each file protected by Atakama is not just encrypted, but is also inextricably linked to more than one of your physical devices (e.g. your computer and your smartphone).

When you open a file protected by Atakama, your linked mobile device receives an approval request as a push notification. When you tap on the big, green “Approve” button on your smartphone, your file instantly opens on your computer. And when doing a keyword search to find a file, Atakama allows your search to include encrypted files. We understand that file-level security cannot disrupt your productivity.
