by John Cox Author

In today’s hustle-bustle, efficiently raising your small business is an absolute tough task. Being the owner of SMB or medium business, it is quite hard to keenly focus on every small aspect of process which leads you to success. Glory of success visits to those who attempts to work for it - this saying itself states that in order to see the heights, you have to prepare yourself hard of fallings. 

Time & distance often make it hard for businesses to continue their process without any troubles. However, making the business environment mobile means allowing remote employees into the process. Fortunately, with the presence of Remote QuickBooks, such transformations aren’t that typical or expensive. The hosted application facilitates a dynamic business environment where employees can forecast reports & manage critical financial activities effortlessly. 

From SMBs to huge enterprises, from accounting firms to individual accounting professionals, everyone needs a proper infrastructure setup in order to fulfill accounting & bookkeeping alike activities. But, not every business or individual can have the requisite resources or infrastructure to experience secure remote access with QuickBooks or any other accounting software. And, such loopholes within dynamic business environment often invites external threats. 

If you’re looking to have tricks that can help you to establish safe & secure remote access of employees then, these three points will surely help you, 

  • Set Strong Credentials 

Third party hosting provider always asks users to create strong passwords that include alphabets, numbers, and special characters. For employees to have safe remote access from any location, setting strong login credentials is a talk of sense. 

As easy-to-crack passwords ruin the security of your business and make the entire hosted network vulnerable to unauthorized access.

 

  • Switch To Smart Cloud

 

Hosted QuickBooks welcomes end-to-end data encryption, advanced features, and constant data backups into your business which ensures that remote employees are accessing data safely. 

QuickBooks cloud is no less than an advance security mechanism adept platform which allows businesses to securely store their data on host’s off-site servers. In order to avail optimal data security of host’s server, user only needs to migrate their QuickBooks to the cloud. The migration thus allows employees to access business data from anywhere, at any time without creating disruption to others. 

The freedom of location, device, and OS is also offered by the cloud migration using which employees of an organization can work remotely from any location. Nowadays, heavy discounts provided by third parties are the real bonus, helping SMBs and CPAs to adopt QuickBooks remote hosting with minimal spending.   

  • Limit QuickBooks User Access

 

To restrict unauthorized access and external threats, it is equally important to limit the QuickBooks access and provide access only to trustworthy employees. Many employees, as a team, works on the same file but that doesn’t mean you need to provide access to private & confidential data to every member of the team.   

It is advisable to add one more layer of security to your QuickBooks data by adding QuickBooks Virtual Network (VPN) access which prevents you from unwanted remote access. 

Wrapping Up 

Deployment of QuickBooks on a cloud server intensifies your business security and remote employees can also experience safe access to the cloud-based data. Not only this, you find your own employees even more faithful as they can’t think of any fraud. For small businesses, switching to the cloud is one of the best decision in regards to business security, productivity, and flexibility.
