Security and Data Protection
There are many challenges that small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) face in today’s digital world. One of the most critical challenges is data security. SMEs often struggle to manage, store and track their customer data without breaching UK GDPR laws while staying on top of daily enquiries, tasks, and invoices. This issue can lead to data breaches, loss of customer trust, and significant financial costs.
The Importance of ProjexCRM Security and Data Protection
ProjexCRM systems offer many benefits for SMEs. We are cost-effective, scalable, and take security seriously when protecting customer data. One of the most significant risks is data breaches. Not protecting your data as a SME will lead to severe consequences. Some of these could lead to loss of customer trust and legal fines, not to mention damage to your reputation. Many businesses rely on spreadsheets or traditional methods of recording customer data, which is potentially harmful if leaked to your SME. ProjexCRM can guarantee your data’s safety and control whilst providing a clean CRM interface that beats spreadsheets!
ProjexCRM's Current Security Measures
There are safeguarding measures that the ProjexCRM already has in place. For example, Cloudflare is used to prevent DDOS attacks. A DDOS attack is a malicious attempt to obstruct a server, service, or network’s regular traffic by overwhelming the target with excessive Internet traffic. This attack will deny any customers access to your website.
MySQLi protects against SQL injection, a standard web hacking technique. A hacker can place malicious code in a SQL statement. This type of attack can be in a web page input. For example, if your website requires a customer to log in. Instead of inputting a username and password, a hacker could input an SQL statement that you will run on your database, leading to unauthorised access to valuable data.
There is also form protection against external forms and SSL to add safety and ensure certificates are updated.
SSL Encryption and Data Privacy for ProjexCRM Users
One of the essential security measures for ProjexCRM systems is SSL encryption. SSL encryption will encrypt all the data transmitted between a customer’s device and the server. This layer of security makes it challenging for hackers to access or intercept the data. Using SSL encryption protects customer’s data from unauthorised access and ensures that the customer data is transmitted.
Access Controls and User Management for ProjexCRM Security
Access controls and user management are critical for ProjexCRM security. They help ensure that only authorised personnel can access sensitive data and perform specific tasks. ProjexCRM uses access controls and user management features to restrict access to customer data and ensure that only authorised personnel can access sensitive data.
