Cloud ERP Systems Provide Enhanced Security For Your Business
Small and medium businesses often trail behind large organizations to protect themselves and their systems against Cyber-Criminal activities. Most small business owners may not realize their value to attackers. Cloud computing offers a robust security solution for an SMB budget.
What is it that Cyber-Criminals want?
Cyber-criminals have a lot to gain by targeting small and medium-sized operations. You tend to handle the same type of transactions as your bigger counterparts. Gaining access to this info from an SMB is sometimes easier for them.
Here are some examples of what a criminal could do with your data.
- Resell customer lists
- Use customer financial details to steal directly from them
- Impersonate your business and collect money for nothing
- Lock you out of your system and demand a ransom to be paid
Why are Cloud Platforms the solution?
The proper level of security is typically too costly for the average small business to bear on its own. All too often, it gets cut out of the operating budget, leaving the business subject to cyber-attacks. Some smaller organizations even rely on employees using their personal devices, which makes security even harder to control.
Cloud vendors, like Windward Software, have already invested enormous resources in their products’ security, so you don't have to bear that cost. It is typically split amongst all users in the form of a subscription to their service. Moving to the cloud could improve your overall security.
