Tax Manager SaaS Chooses Managed Servers over Cloud Computing

Tax Manager SaaS Chooses Managed Servers over Cloud Computing

Ann Arbor, MI (PRWEB) December 16, 2009

Automated Tax Office Manager (ATOM), has just joined forces with Online Tech to deliver tax management solutions to CPA and retail tax offices through a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model. As their business continues to grow, ATOM wanted to upgrade to better managed servers with Online Tech, Michigan’s leading managed data center operator.

Mark Pricco, CEO and founder of ATOM, researched a variety of solutions for his SaaS delivery, including several cloud computing providers, before choosing the managed dedicated server solution from Online Tech. “Our clientele needs to be assured that their sensitive data is entirely protected. Thus, we preferred a hosting partner that focused solely on delivering a reliable and secure hosting platform,” says Pricco.

According to Pricco, ATOM is quickly expanding its business, and attributes its growth to the simplicity and accessibility of its software. "Users of ATOM’s tax management software rely on the security and privacy of their customer’s data, and need access to the application around the clock – especially during peak tax filing season," remarked Pricco.

"Online Tech’s security measures recently went through a SAS-70 type II audit, and we have a completely managed dedicated server, computing infrastructure and IT management," said Mike Klein, president of Online Tech. "We look forward to working with ATOM Software and helping the company better serve its customers."

Online Tech’s data centers have many additional security measures, including:

    Redundant firewalls for uninterrupted security
    Universal Threat Management (protects against DOS, Port Scans and other advanced intrusion attacks)
    Virtual Private Network (VPN) data encryption
    Security cameras with minimum 90 days of recorded DVR
    Combination and key locks to all racks
    Logging of all entrances to data center by key card

At the end of the day, we have seen that most SaaS companies would rather have the security and reliability of a company like Online Tech then risk their business to an unproven cloud solution with the data “somewhere in the clouds.”
