Accounting firms around the world are facing challenges with the adaption of Cloud Computing. They want to take advantage of the cost savings as well as increased productivity and efficiency but recognize that the smallest security breach would be fatal to their firm. They also recognize that not running their business on the Cloud could be equally fatal as they could no longer compete with firms taking advantage of the financial savings of the Cloud.

SAS70/SSAE 16 Independently Audited
Our data center is SSAE 16 (SAS 70)-audited. Our data center’s security, availability, processing integrity, and privacy have all been independently evaluated to meet the standards of regulatory compliance.
In addition to our primary data center in Miami, we encrypt and back up all of our data in a secondary facility in North Carolina and Ireland for protection from natural disasters.

Florida is one of the states which has formally approved cloud computing. According to the Florida Bar Opinion, attorneys can utilize cloud computing "if they take sensible safety measures to make sure that confidentiality of the customer data is perfectly maintained" and keep the track of changes in the technology and law. The attorney also needs to explore the best service provider available and needs to ensure that this company provides the required security, sufficient access to the data stored remotely, and performs backups up of the data to an offsite location.
