A plenty of businesses have already shifted their locally-installed QuickBooks to hosted QuickBooks unaware of the fact that it requires proper monitoring and control over the access.

  • Multiple User Performance


Multi-user access is one of the benefits that QuickBooks hosting provides but it can also do the opposite, if not tackled smartly. Businesses should track the number of users handled by each server as most of the businesses keep on adding new servers without calculating the resource actually required results in delivery complexity and poor performance.


  • Irregular Monitoring Sessions


Advanced security techniques such as two-factor authentication and end-to-end encryption ensure optimum security of the data. But it also requires proper monitoring in which businesses mostly fails. Therefore, businesses should monitor each user’s access and the time period of login frequently to avoid any suspicious activity.


  • Internal Threats


Human carelessness is one of the major factors that affect hosting solutions in every possible way. When employees start taking the decision from their end without discussing with the IT team or other senior authorities, they indirectly allow attackers to exploit the data. In such instance, businesses need to take care of internal threats more than the external ones.


  • Poor Customer Support


There’s no doubt that delay in technical support leads to many problematic issues, and brings unproductivity to business. Every business wants timely assistance and response whenever they fetch any kind of technical issue. The delay in response from the technical support team’s side makes users think that they should probably choose the wrong services.


  • Inadequate Licensing


This is not a general case but creates a lot of issues to some. There are plenty of cloud hosting providers who provide the same license to more than one client’s application. Some cloud vendors also lack in providing individual user settings for printer and scanning functionalities. It is hard for most of the third-party hosting providers to give each user a default or generic setup each time the user logs in.


  • Lack of Security Awareness


In most of the organization's employees don’t follow security laws, which cause a great loss of data and business integrity. Accessing data on unauthorized applications often help attackers to get their hands on the data. It is crucial for every organization to conduct timely security-related training for staff members, which help them to understand things better.


There are many other possible reasons to give, but the selection of an unreliable cloud hosting provider matters the most. According to a survey, it is estimated that around 46% of the enterprises fail in streamlining their complex business processes, 32% of the enterprises deal with internal security threats and 23% of the enterprises still unable to meet their production requirements. Therefore, it is necessary for businesses to take security measures from their ends as well and not to leave everything on the cloud vendor.
