How to Balance Data Security and Data Availability in an Accounting Firm Using the Cloud and Managed IT

We help CPAs. – Here are some questions your competitors answered and made the shift to Tech II.

Why should I move to the cloud?

The cloud isn’t for everyone. Each business should consult with an IT service professional to discuss the pros and cons of moving data and workflow to the cloud. But here’s a reason why some of your competition is already leveraging cloud assets.

The cloud improves your productivity by providing secure access to your data and applications from anywhere, anytime. Your overall IT costs will also reduce as system upgrades and maintenance are handled for you. This gives you the opportunity to focus on your clients’ needs and not business infrastructure.

Is my client data safe in the cloud?

Safety from cyber attacks demands heavy investments in advanced security solutions and expert IT staff who are expensive to hire and retain. When you move to the cloud, you get guaranteed security because cloud service providers are bound by strict regulations to provide the highest level of data security.

Can the cloud be attacked by ransomware?

Data backup and recovery is the ultimate solution for ransomware attacks. Our CryoSuite service offers collaborative file sharing and sync, full image backup, redundancy through offsite servers, among other benefits. In the event of an attack, your operations will be restored quickly, while saving you money you could have lost to the attackers.

How will the cloud handle peak tax seasons?

With the cloud, your data is always available, and your applications will always be running.

Often, peak tax seasons require hiring more staff. This translates to extra costs while buying new IT assets. With the cloud, you will only need more allocation for the resources you require. This enables your new staff to start working immediately.

What are the costs involved?

The move to the cloud is far less expensive than you might think. All the services you will need are provided on a scalability basis. You simply get as much resources as you need. This greatly minimizes your costs while maximizing efficiency.

How do I bring my clients on board?

Chances are that your clients know something about the cloud. You can help them make the move by showing them the benefits. These include:

  • Access to real-time financial status of their businesses
  • Anywhere/anytime access to data
  • Improved productivity due to enhanced collaboration between departments
  • Regular software updates for increased security
