How does a Cloud ERP protect your data?

In an increasingly digitized business landscape, cyberattacks have become commonplace, and no organization is immune. ERP systems have become a prime target for cybercriminals looking to exploit sensitive data and disrupt business operations. In response to this growing threat, it is important for companies to strengthen the security of their ERP systems to protect their data and preserve its operational integrity.

The most common ERP security issues

Common problems include:

  • Security flaws in old technology: Security flaws in outdated software are exploitable vulnerabilities due to the lack of security updates after the developers stop support. These gaps allow hackers to exploit well-documented vulnerabilities to gain access to systems, steal data, or disrupt operations. Outdated software is often incompatible with the latest security tools, making it more susceptible to malware infection.
  • Data breach : Whether as a result of cyberattacks, human error, or security breaches, unauthorized disclosure of sensitive data can have serious consequences, including financial loss, legal litigation, and loss of customer trust.
  • Unauthorized access: Intrusions into ERP systems can allow malicious individuals to access sensitive information, steal confidential data, or disrupt business operations, which can lead to significant financial losses and damage to the company's reputation.
  • Insufficient IT team : Many companies are struggling because of an IT team that is insufficient to meet the growing needs for IT infrastructure management. This inadequacy can lead to project delays, security issues, and decreased operational efficiency.
  • Infrastructure costs: Setting up and maintaining a robust IT infrastructure to support ERP systems can be a significant financial investment for businesses. Costs related to the purchase of servers, data storage, software, and licenses can quickly add up, which can be a barrier for businesses with limited resources.
  • Service maintenance : Managing software updates, security patches, and system performance can be a complex and demanding task. Businesse may find  it difficult to keep their ERP system up-to-date due to time, resource, or skill constraints, which can lead to security vulnerabilities and service interruptions.

Now that we've identified the most common security issues, let's take a look at how cloud ERP solutions can address them.

  • Software Update Automation : Cloud-based integrated management software provides continuous, automated updates to keep software relevant, eliminating obsolescence and ensuring seamless scalability.
  • Built-in Data Protection : Cloud ERP solutions incorporate advanced security features, such as data encryption and role-based access, to prevent data leaks and ensure the confidentiality of sensitive information.
  • Strong Authentication, Continuous Monitoring, and Data Encryption:  These features effectively prevent unauthorized access and quickly detect intrusion attempts, ensuring the integrity and security of ERP systems.
