Companies looking for a dependable cloud CRM system might find it hard to know where to put their data these days. Governments now hack each other’s computers, and listen in on what private companies are doing. Not long ago, Sony executives found their private e-mails distributed all over the internet. It seems that almost every week we hear news about the consequences of data theft. In this new world of computers and connections, is there still such a thing as a secret?
The answer is yes, but you need to pay attention to where you put your information, and how you secure it. In the real world, we don’t use the same key to open our office door, our car, our apartment, our and safe deposit box at the bank. Similarly, it would be wise to use different passwords for our work email, our private computer, our online banking accounts, our contact management software, our sales team application, and so on.
But isn’t that too much to remember?
Actually, it doesn’t have to be. There are several excellent password managers available online, which let you store many different complex passwords in one safe place. With a password manager, it takes a couple of extra moments to access that data – but if you think that’s an inconvenience, trust me on one thing: having your private data stolen is much, much worse.
At Zulu, we’ve built our entire cloud CRM system around the concept of strong data security, with plenty of convenience but without all the problems of having too many passwords. We offer many different services for your office, but we can also be that one place where your data is safe. The chart below can show you how.
What it means is that whether you’re logged in from the Philippines, Singapore, Myanmar, Bangladesh or somewhere entirely different, we have several different layers of security, protecting your data from the wrong eyes. If that all looks too complicated, don’t worry. We’ve designed the Zulu program so that the technical stuff is on our side, and the easy, fast and convenient user interface is all you need to see.
In summary: Zulu’s cloud CRM and ERP system can identify where a login attempt is coming from, and only approve certain locations. It puts your data on separate host computers, both of which need to be accessed in order to unlock the information. It encrypts communications, so that even if someone is hijacking your internet connection, they still won’t be able to read your data. And if you leave your computer on after a session, Zulu logs you out automatically after 30 minutes.
Zulu’s all-in-one CRM can also open separate, private accounts for different users within the same company. If the person who tracks inventory doesn’t need to access the cloud CRM system, then you can change the permissions to keep them apart from each other. If the person who creates company reports doesn’t need to log into the invoice generator, then those sections can be made separate as well.
At every stage of development, the Zulu cloud CRM and ERP technical team has been focused on the necessity of balancing customization with security. We’re extremely proud of the result, which you can test for free through our signup page, like so many others have in Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Indonesia and elsewhere. Give it a try, and breathe easy – you’ve got the experts on your side.
