Speedy & Secure Cloud ERP

Cloud ERP continues to change the way businesses manage and report data, with companies no longer needing to purchase and maintain costly hardware to store data or run applications.  But what is the impact on performance and security?  These are important considerations when shopping for a cloud ERP solution as your business operations will them be dependent on the service provider.

Speedy & Secure Cloud ERP | AccountnetConcerns about performance are easily addressed; in a nutshell, cloud ERP software often outperforms on-premise solutions. Software running in the cloud is designed to operate well over networks and the system architecture gives more consistent performance. When there are usage surges, your cloud provider can provide extra resources to your business. Additionally, employees accessing real-time company data at anytime from anywhere in the world are likely to experience much better performance as compared to connecting to a company network through a VPN or other remote solution.

Security questions to consider when choosing a provider include:

  • How often back-ups of the data run? Good providers may back up your information several times each day.
  • Who else may be accessing your data, and for what purposes? Find out whether your cloud storage area is shared or private.
  • What data encryption method does the service provider use? Are all security practices up to date? What additional safeguards does the cloud provider have in place to ensure your data is not compromised?
  • Security needs to include passwords that are not easily hacked. Your cloud service provider should require high quality passwords and force passwords to be changed at a regular intervals for added security.
