Protecting ACH Account Data

Verify first-time web debits to meet Nacha mandates, while securing ACH account data at rest.

Helping you meet Nacha regulations since day one. Bluefin is the leading provider of payment and data security solutions for 20,000 companies in 47 countries.

Nacha has introduced two key regulations that apply to all companies processing ACH transactions. Nacha’s WEB Debit Account Validation Rule now requires any company that processes ACH transactions to verify first-time WEB debits, as well as verify any changes to an existing ACH account. Additionally, Nacha’s Rule on Supplementing Data Security Requirements requires non-FI Originators, Third-Party Service Providers, and Third-Party Senders with more than 2 million ACH payments annually to protect consumers’ ACH deposit account information by rendering it unreadable when stored electronically. Bluefin specializes in ACH account data protection to help your organization meet all Nacha compliance rules.
