How Safe is Acumatica Cloud ERP ?
Posted on: October 8, 2015 | By: Craig Thompson | Acumatica
Data breaches have been everywhere recently. From Target, to T-Mobile, even Harvard University – if you haven’t been effected by a data breach yet, consider yourself one of the few.
Due to these breaches, many people become weary of dedicating their information to any type of computer system, especially when it comes to ERP. It is reasonable to be careful and take your time when choosing which system fits your company best. Yet when it comes to sensitive data, banks, health-care sectors, and government organizations trust Acumatica cloud ERP. Here are just a few reasons why:
Acumatica makes sure you are really, you – When it comes to protecting your important information, Acumatica employs strong user authentication. User logins can be limited to specific IP addresses and measures can be taken for password protection such as one time password systems and frequent specified password change periods.
You are in full control of your data – The fact that Acumatica is a cloud-based solution sometimes makes people wonder, is all of my data safe in the cloud? With Acumatica, all business logic, such as calculations, reports and validations are processed on the server – not on the user’s computer or web browser. Plus with Acumatica you have the choice to store and process your data wherever you wish, whether that is hosted at your location, or stored within a cloud service provider of your choice.
Role based security- Acumatica allows users access to features only that fall within their role. Users will only have the ability to use applications and view reports and data items that are pertinent to them based on their settings.
Encryption all around – Acumatica uses the same encryption technology that banks use, this way no one can “listen in” on your data. Plus, sensitive fields such as credit card and social security numbers within your SQL databases have the ability to be encrypted based on your preferences.
Acumatica has enterprise-grade security features in order to allow users to feel safe within their ERP system. With important business and client information, companies cannot afford to take risks with ERP systems that are not up to par. Does your current ERP system make the cut?
