October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month! You may have concerns about the security of moving your accounting or ERP to the Cloud. These are understandable concerns, however, the comprehensive security in Acumatica can make the Cloud even safer than your on-premise operations.
Who Is At Risk?
With on-premise data storage, the risk of exposure to a security breach increases. Small to mid-sized businesses are exactly who cybercriminals target for ransomware attacks. The most common and most damaging types of ransomware encrypt your data. When your data is encrypted, you won’t be able to access it without an encryption key. Hackers use this as a tactic to force businesses to pay a ransom, causing your business to come to a halt – which costs you time and money!
