You can make use of the services in the PCS via a Web or System Interface, or a combination of both. When using a Web Interface – the Internet – your information exchange will be conducted automatically via an HTTPs connection. The ‘s’ of HTTPs stands for ‘secure’: this means that your data will be sent in encrypted form.
If you are working with a System Interface, you can choose a connection from among three secure options: sFTP, AS2 and HTTPs. We will be pleased to help you decide which type of secure connection best meets your needs.
Multiple layers of security are in place within the PCS. Information is visible only to those in certain roles (need-to-know basis). Following a period of inactivity in the PCS, an automatic time-out will result.
