Reasons Why Your Organization Should Switch to eFax

Many organization rely upon faxing to transmit important documents. Although with an increase of technology, functionality and convenience, many businesses are looking to switch to eFax to gain a competitive edge.

Some of the benefits of switching to an eFax system include:

Privacy

An eFax is delivered and secured to your email inbox with use of encryption. Logins to the eFax online portal are secured as well using a Transport Layer Security (TLS) connection that ensures confidentiality and security.

Save Money

An eFax system requires no additional fax lines and fax machine hardware. Therefore, it minimizes the amount of attendance bills and running costs associated. There is no need for a large fax machine to take up space in your office and no need to purchase ink, or repair equipment. Since virtual faxes use the internet there is no need to pay additional costs for a dedicated phone line.

Mobility

An eFax can be accessed from anywhere with internet connection. You can receive the faxes in your email by using your personal faxing number. The same goes for sending faxes, you can simply use the online fax portal to send your faxes. It’s that easy!

Create a Strong Password Policy

Using a strong password can deter potential hackers from accessing important data on your device. A strong password is the first line of defense in protecting yourself against potential unwanted access of your device. In most cases, a relatively easy password can be easily cracked. Some of these methods used to gain access include guessing your password, online dictionary attacks, offline dictionary attacks and offline brute force attacks. Each of these potential threats can be protected against by developing a strong password.

So, what makes a strong password?

A strong password is a combination of lowercase, uppercase letters, numbers and symbols. A strong password usually consists of 8 or more characters. It is usually combined with upper and lower-case letters with at least 1 numerical character or symbol. Each character added to your password increases its complexity, making it much harder to decode.
