Vancouver Digitization Company Shares How They Keep Private Information Private

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - November 22, 2017) - Vancouver digitization company says private servers increase security for clients with sensitive information

As a scanning and document digitization company, the team at Micro Com Systems works with a variety of clients around BC. Occasionally, people bring in documents of a sensitive nature. To keep confidential information safe, Micro Com only relies on their own in-house servers for all their work.

There's been a lot of talk about how using shared servers can pose a security threat. Recently, the team at Micro Com Systems won a contract from an agency that was concerned about how and where their sensitive information would be stored during the conversion from paper to digital.

The customer's internal security department determined that Micro Com's policy of only using their own in-house servers made them the preferred choice.

Today, taking advantage of innovations such as shared servers and cloud storage is common practice for many businesses. The convenience and cost savings of using a third party for hosting and storage are significant. But outsourcing any data comes with a security risk. Simply put, the vast amount of data stored by organizations that offer hosting and cloud storage solutions makes them an attractive target for cybercriminals and mischief makers.

In addition, the controversial American Patriot Act increases the ability of US law enforcement agencies to access records held by American organizations. For those working with a document digitization company that outsources some of their services or uses a shared or cloud hosting platform potentially held by an American company, there's an increased risk.

As a homegrown, BC-based company, Micro Com Systems' document scanning and records management services are all conducted in-house, using their own private servers. In particularly sensitive cases, the Micro Com team can even pack up their equipment and perform document scanning and digitization right on the customer's premises.

For clients who require scanning and digitization tasks (of any scale), Micro Com acts as a service bureau, allowing organizations to forego the cost of acquiring expensive scanning hardware, capture software, and skilled personnel. That means jobs get done quickly and professionally and surplus budgets can be allocated to something more relevant than maintaining an in-house scanning environment.
