Don’t be. Sage Intacct’s cloud-based accounting solution is so safe that its backups have backups. And it offers something you don’t often see from data security systems: a guarantee.
If you’ve ever done any of your financial tasks over the internet – transaction downloads or online bill-pay or web-based tax preparation – you may remember that feeling you had the first time you dispatched sensitive data onto distant servers.
Is it safe?, you wondered. And you worried every time you heard a story about online financial information being compromised.
It’s not surprising that you’d be apprehensive about storing all of your company’s accounting records on computer hardware that lives hundreds or thousands of miles from you. But if you’re doing so through Intacct, rest assured that the company employs state-of-the-art security protocols – and then some.
Beating Their Own Target
It goes without saying that a business cannot lose critical financial data. You’ve probably imagined what would happen if, for example, your orders and invoices, customer records and payroll history were to disappear. Worst case scenario: Your company shuts down.
Sage Intacct is acutely aware of that fact, and has designed its system security for maximum safety. It’s so confident that it offers a very strong, very comprehensive service guarantee that promises a minimum of 99.8 percent availability. Over the last year, it’s done even better than that, clocking in at an impressive 99.97 percent uptime.
Sage Intacct backs up that assurance of uninterrupted operation with its Availability Plus program: You’d get a subscription credit of 10 percent for each percentage point that dipped below the availability goal (up to 50 percent of that month’s subscriber fees).
Data Redundancy Key
If you haven’t yet started saving your work data in a cloud-based storage system, you probably make regular backups and store them offsite, like at your home. But what if a natural disaster claimed both properties?
Sage Intacct does online backup one better. If your content is destroyed at the company’s primary data center facility in San Jose, CA, you won’t lose more than two hours of data. Sungard, the global leader in disaster recovery programs, maintains backups at its Pennsylvania location. You’ll be able to log in again within 24 hours.
We could throw a lot of operational jargon at you to describe Sage Intacct’s intense commitment to data security, and We’d be happy to have that conversation with you. But we think Sage Intacct’s guarantee, its safety procedures and its track record speak for themselves.
