Lock Your Lacerte® Data Away From Hackers With Abacus Private Cloud
Handling complex tax returns shouldn’t come with complications. Today’s cybercrime-ridden world, however, is making this goal harder to attain. Cybercriminals now view firms and businesses as easily-accessible, one-stop shops for stealing sensitive corporate data. It’s why ransomware attacks on firms and businesses are up 300% since 2015.
Moving your Lacerte® software and confidential client accounting data onto the cloud is one way you can immediately mitigate potential data breach risks. AbacusNext can help you securely run and store your Intuit® Lacerte® accounting software and data with our cloud based software hosting platform, Abacus Private Cloud. Abacus Private Cloud hosting acts very much like a virtual desktop, except it’s powered and secured by nine 256-bit AES encrypted, SSL-A rated global data centers instead of a run-of-the-mill malware scanner. This means that you and your clients can upload and download tax forms, manage e-filings, generate reports, and manage other confidential financial data in a way that keeps them from being intercepted by cybercriminals. Unlike desktop-installed software, you can access Lacerte® on your Private Cloud account anytime, anywhere, and on any device.
