Infrastructure for Data Security at Entigrity  

Hundreds of small and mid-sized accounting firms of America have found it very convenient to hire remote staff to cope up with the staffing challenges and also were able to save enormous and add value to their practice in the way. For small and mid-sized accounting firms, it is critical to have solid staff & accounting systems in place, so you can focus more on growing respective practices.

A number of CPAs and Accounting firms outsource their work to third-party vendors to save time and cost to an in-house employee. But again that is like taking a chance with the quality of work to be delivered. Sometimes it works, sometimes not, but more on that in some other article. In today’s competitive marketplace, hiring and retaining quality staff is one thing, but when remote staff is in a picture a bigger concern a lot of our clients have shown are related to the infrastructure of the workplace and security of their client data.
