Is Web-Based Software Secure?
Worried about the security of your data on the web? Here's some food for thought:
- What if your computer gets a virus or spyware?
Unfortunately, it's easy to download spyware or viruses onto your computer without knowing it. If this happens, other people can access private information residing on your computer or you could lose your data all together.
- What if your laptop is stolen?
Unlike desktop applications, your data isn't stored directly on your computer, so if your laptop is lost or stolen no one will be able access your data.
- Do you exchange sensitive information between other computers?
Web-based applications are more secure than transferring data on discs or through email because your company information remains only within the application. After all, you wouldn't want confidential information ending up in the wrong hands.
