One of the most common questions of people is regarding the security of cloud-based accounting. We've all heard the stories of how our financial information can be stolen online, and it definitely creates cause for concern.
That's why companies use top-level, SSL encryption for all their accounting files, which are stored on secure servers in SAS certified facilities. But there are also steps you can take to make sure that your cloud-based accounting files stay secure. You can easily get the best cloud managed services.
1. Make sure you're using the latest version of your Web browser or smartphone software before you access your accounting files. In most cases, our SSL encryption measures won't permit you to log in to your files if you're not using the latest version of Internet Explorer, Firefox or Safari.

But just in case, it's important to always make sure you're using the latest software versions available, as this software will contain important security updates to make it harder for hackers to break into your files.
2. Always access your accounting files from a secure Internet connection. – On our end, your data is kept secure in the cloud. But all of our security measures won't help if you access files through an unsecured network.
3. Follow common-sense measures to protect your data. – Use a strong password with a combination of numbers and letters that no one will be able to guess. Make sure no one is looking over your shoulder when you log in to your cloud-based accounting software.
Don't leave your computer unattended in a public place. All of these common-sense measures can help keep your financial data secure in the cloud.
