There are many advantages to choosing a cloud-based telephone system in your business. Whether you are seeking a hosted VoIP system or a Unified Communications (UC) solution, Cloud telephony offer big advantages to today’s businesses.
A key selling point of cloud communications is that businesses can access data from anywhere. It offers reduced costs, and easier scalability, amongst other benefits.
Yet despite the rapid evolution and benefits that cloud telephony offers businesses, there are still many that are anxious about making the switch. This reluctance largely centres around concerns about data security. Some believe that sticking to traditional data servers minimises the risk of data breaches.
It’s important to be aware of any potential security risks ahead of time and know how you can prevent them.
Phishing, fraud, intercepted calls, spoofing and more are all typical security threats with Cloud technologies but can be easily prevented with the right security in place.
With cloud telephone systems, security is handled by the provider who you pay a monthly service fee to host the equipment for you. This means the maintenance and security responsibilities are put into the hands of trained, dedicated professionals who specialise in areas that your IT department might not.
In addition to the added security they build around data, ‘cloud’ based phone systems enable numerous platforms of communication in one central location. Faxes can be sent without a dedicated connection by backing up each extension with its own separate, unique fax number. In many instances, faxes can even be sent directly to smartphones and tablets.
Choosing a cloud solution gives you and your business more security than a traditional phone system can. As a provider of cloud telephone systems, we are dedicated to running a secure service, so you don’t have to.
