Software security and data protection

User and data security are vitally important when using any type of software but they are arguably even more important for accounting software given the importance and critical nature of financial records. Here at Big Red Cloud, we take security and protection of your data extremely seriously. That’s why we have teamed up with Microsoft Azure to provide you with secure and reliable online accounting software.

Infrastructure platform

Big Red Cloud’s accounting software application is hosted on Azure. Azure is Microsoft’s cloud computing platform. With Azure, Microsoft became the first major cloud provider to adopt the world’s first international standard for data privacy in the cloud. In 2014, Azure also became the first cloud platform approved by the European Union’s privacy law.

SSL

Big Red Cloud’s accounting software application uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption to provide you with a secure connection. Therefore all traffic between your web browser and our server is encrypted so even if your data is intercepted by someone, they will not be able to read it.

Password standards

We use complex password validation standards, ensuring the strength of each user’s password and protecting their account.

User permissions

Our accounting software allows account administrators to define what level of access and functionality each user has to your financial records. This allows you to protect your financial records by assigning the relevant access required by each individual user. You may give an unlimited amount of users access to your records, however they must be invited by the account administrator first.

Security testing

Big Red Cloud’s accounting software has been subjected to independent, external testing to verify its security.

Data ownership

Although you enter your data into Big Red Cloud’s accounting software which is hosted by Microsoft Azure, you retain ownership of the data.

Data backups

Microsoft Azure automatically takes two backups of your data. This secures the availability of your data should you have any issues with your financial records.

Security concerns

We’re happy we have taken all necessary steps to ensure the security of your data in Big Red Cloud. However, if you do have a concern, don’t hesitate to contact our support team.
