MANAGED SECURITY SERVICE PROVIDER FOR ACCOUNTING FIRMS
What IT security assets and protocols need to be in place to fortify your accounting organization against hacks, ransomware, and malware?
Why Are CPA Firms Gravitating Toward the Cybersecurity Managed Security Service Provider like Alavanca Systems?
But, things change and Chicagoland accounting firms are now moving to hosted desktop solutions by the hundreds.
Because they need seamless work-from-home solutions, and they need a way to secure their now geo-diverse workflow and data.

What Are Hosted Desktops?
In a hosted desktop setup, all of the applications, data, and computing is housed and accomplished within the cloud.
The company requires no in-house servers or powerful computers. Each person working in the accounting firm uses a laptop, tablet, or “thin client” (basically an internet-connected monitor, keyboard, and mouse) to access their computer desktop, applications, operating system, data, and personal settings.
From a user perspective, using a hosted desktop or cloud-based workstation is faster (because there is no boot-up or computing time required) and as intuitive as using their in-house computer system.
Are Hosted Desktops Secure?
The datacenters used by Alavanca Systems to host our clients’ workflow and data are the same datacenters that are used by Fortune 500 companies and government agencies. Because of this, our datacenters have to be constantly kept up to spec on cybersecurity and compliance concerns.
We set up accounting firms to access their cloud-based workstations through a secure, encrypted VPN tunnel, so data in transit is invisible to your internet service provider and anyone else who doesn’t have the authorization to view the data.
The Advantages of Hosted Desktops for Accounting Firms
Simple provisioning of work-from-home employees
Easy-to-budget, predictable monthly payments
No up-front capital expenditures
Freedom to access your workflow and data from anywhere
