Any successful business or firm needs to have the right software in place to manage tax-related tasks. Using this software often involves collecting sensitive client data, especially if it’s used with desktop accounting programs. Unfortunately, cybercriminals are starting to prey on lawyers, tax firms and businesses of all sizes in growing numbers. In fact, roughly 80% of businesses have reported experiencing at least one data breach.
Cloud-based programs such as AvaTax may not provide much protection if your using it with desktop-based accounting software. All a cybercriminal would need to do is find a vulnerability in your desktop program to compromise your client data. Abacus Private Cloud can help you get around this by offering an encrypted, ePHI and HIPAA-compliant cloud hosting environment that will allow you to run AvaTax and QuickBooks efficiently and securely.
