Business expense tracking apps for small and medium businesses

Technology is getting more sophisticated – and so are the hackers, and that’s why details of your expenses are safe with the Solo Expenses expense tracker app. Let us explain why…

Every scrap of data a hacker can mine illicitly from any part of your computer network has value. That’s why there are cyber-attacks almost without number around the globe, happening at this very moment, and why you can never be too careful about IT security.

There are two broad areas to be aware of – the internet of things and your own network security.

Let’s take the last one first. This is about the levels of security around your own network; about the levels of security you’ve set, the strength of your anti-virus software, and about how often you back up data.

For example, do you have a dedicated firewall device sitting between your network and the internet, like a dark-suited bouncer at the entrance to an exclusive club? You should.  Do you back up files to a secure data vault on a regular basis? Are you strict about how the backups are done? You should be.

And then what about your central heating? Yes, you heard that correctly, We’re talking about the internet of things; the interconnectivity of devices like central heating times, and remotely-accessible CCTV cameras. Often these are equipped with low-security thresholds, allowing others to view what was exclusively yours. A chilling thought, isn’t it? But it’s entirely possible, for unprotected devices on the Internet of Things to represent a back door into your IT network…

The best security from Solo Expenses: The Expense Tracker App

The strongest IT security you’ll find is on the cloud, home of levels of protection the home or small business user can only dream of. That’s why business expense track apps like Solo Expenses live there, in a world of data encryption, virtualization, and international storage.

Data stored in such an expense tracker app is held on multiple servers, all of which are largely hacker-proof, protecting your expenses data on two levels. Firstly, from a cyber point of view, hacking these servers is a difficult business, and secondly, from a physical point of view, is one data center were to be damaged by fire, for example, another would take over the work – and you wouldn’t notice the switch.

Strong levels of security are one of the important features of expense tracking apps for small businesses like Solo Expenses; features you can’t see when using the app, but which are vital to their secure operation.

At Solo Expenses, we take your security very seriously, which is why we’ve been operating from the cloud for almost 15 years, long before a lot of people were even aware of its existence.
