Tally Vault uses a non-stored password with an advanced algorithm to validate a new user without any prior knowledge of the password and the decrypted form of data is not stored on the system.
TallyVault is a feature in Tally.ERP 9 (the previous version of Tally) that provides data encryption and security capabilities. It allows users to protect their company data by encrypting it with a password, ensuring that only authorized users can access and view the data.
Here are key points about TallyVault:
Data Encryption: TallyVault uses strong encryption algorithms to secure company data. When you enable TallyVault for a company in Tally.ERP 9, it encrypts all the data files associated with that company, including the ledger, vouchers, masters, and other company-specific information.
Password Protection: TallyVault requires you to set a password that serves as the key to encrypt and decrypt the data. This password is needed every time you want to open or work with the Tally company associated with TallyVault.
User Authentication: TallyVault ensures that only authorized users with the correct password can access the encrypted data. Without the password, the data remains inaccessible and unreadable, providing an additional layer of security.
Integrated Security: TallyVault is integrated with Tally.ERP 9, meaning it works seamlessly with the existing security mechanisms and access control features in Tally. It does not interfere with user permissions or other security settings defined within Tally.
Data Backup and Restore: TallyVault does not impact the backup and restore process in Tally. You can take regular backups of your TallyVault-protected company data and restore it when needed. The restored data will still be protected by TallyVault and require the password for access.
Security Audit: TallyVault maintains a log of all the activities related to the company data, including user logins, failed login attempts, and changes made to the data. This audit log helps in monitoring and tracking any unauthorized access attempts or suspicious activities.
TallyVault provides an essential layer of data protection, especially for sensitive financial and accounting information. By encrypting the data and requiring a password for access, it helps businesses comply with data security regulations, prevent unauthorized access, and safeguard their valuable data.
It’s important to note that the information provided here is based on Tally.ERP 9, and there may have been updates or changes in TallyPrime.
