Industry, Tech Experts Talk About Keeping Web-Based Software Safe & Secure

That changing dynamic can create a lot of uncertainty about the safety and soundness of using web-based software, especially in an industry that has not always been quick to adapt to new technologies. A panel of experts spoke on a webinar last week about how companies can and should be mitigating those risks, and how cloud-based software can provide more benefits than locally hosted solutions.

“If you lose any of those three things, you’re compromised,” Mapes said. A key to making sure that none of those things are ever lost is by making sure that data is encrypted – that includes while being transmitted between a terminal and the web-based server storing the information, as well as while the information is at rest inside the web-based server. Strong encryption is a must in today’s environment, the speakers said.
