Cloud ERP Systems are Great Cyber Security Investments 

Visit Website View Our Posts

If you are concerned about Cyber Security, as many of our customers are, investing in cloud ERP systems is a great start. 

The majority of your critical business information (especially manufacturers) is split between CAD drawings and customer provided documents, and your ERP system which contains all your accounting, inventory, sales, production and purchasing history and data. 

In addition to ERP software, we sell IT services for manufacturing. We started doing this years ago when ERP customers asked us to help speed up their systems.  I was asked to look at a slow running ERP report, and my response was "you need to talk to your IT company about getting a new server."  The customer looked at me, confused, and said "aren't you my IT company?" 

From that point forward we started offering IT support for manufacturing

A recent experience by a prospect (who unfortunately didn’t have our managed it services) shows why we focus on this. They were attacked with ransomware, and lost all of their files, email, history … except their Business Central cloud solution. To be honest, this "saved their bacon.

As experts in manufacturing business central implementations, I have been telling customers for years about the cyber security benefits of being in the cloud. Microsoft has the resources to protect their own servers from being hacked, as well as to ensure backups and disaster recovery is never compromised. 

I'm very proud of our abilities in cyber security and It managed services for manufacturing, but even I have to admit that our team is imperfect and mistakes happen. I can honestly say that I sleep better an night knowing that Microsoft is responsible for the cyber security of their cloud hosted Business Central and not me.
