Cybersecurity is a critical aspect of modern business operations. Concerns about data security continue to grow as more companies turn to cloud-based solutions for their Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) needs. MYOB Advanced Business (Acumatica), a leading cloud ERP platform, addresses these concerns through encryption protocols, secure access controls, and real-time monitoring mechanisms. Business owners and software end-users should understand the basics of cybersecurity and how MYOB Advanced ensures the safety of your data as part of your long-term pathway to the cloud.

What is Cybersecurity?

Cybersecurity encompasses a range of practices, technologies, and processes designed to protect computer systems, networks, and data from unauthorised access, attacks, and damage. As businesses digitise their operations, the need for robust cybersecurity measures becomes even more critical.

How MYOB Advanced (Acumatica) keeps your data safe

The MYOB Advanced (Acumatica) platform relies on a multi-faceted approach to ensure your sensitive information remains protected:

  1. Advanced Encryption: MYOB Advanced (Acumatica) employs state-of-the-art encryption techniques to safeguard data both in transit and at rest, ensuring that the information remains unintelligible even if unauthorised access occurs.
  2. Role-Based Access Control (RBAC): This ensures that users have access only to the data and features necessary for their roles. This granular access control minimises the risk of unauthorised users compromising sensitive information.
  3. Continuous Monitoring: Real-time monitoring tools promptly detect and respond to suspicious security incidents or potential breaches. MYOB also conduct regular security audits and assessments on MYOB Advanced (Acumatica) to identify and address potential vulnerabilities. This approach helps to avoid threats and maintain a robust defence against cyber-attacks.
  4. Backups and disaster recovery: Amazon Web Services (AWS), the hosting provider for MYOB Advanced, implements robust backup and disaster recovery protocols, ensuring the availability and integrity of data even in unforeseen circumstances.
  5. 2FA and Single Sign-On (SSO): Two-factor authentication (2FA) provides basic authentication for employees. By enabling 2FA, organisation owners limit the likelihood of data being compromised. In addition, MYOB Advanced (Acumatica) offers Single Sign-On (SSO). This eliminates the need to remember multiple usernames and passwords by allowing secure logins to many applications with just one set of credentials.
  6. Compliance Standards: MYOB Advanced (Acumatica) adheres to industry-specific compliance standards,  including GDPR and HIPAA, providing businesses with the assurance that their operations align with the highest data protection and privacy requirements.
