QuickBooks company files contain sensitive business and customer information. File corruption or unauthorized access puts this data at risk. QuickBooks File Doctor has robust security protections to keep your files safe.

The Need for Company File Security

QB company files include:

  • Customer details and transaction history
  • Employee payroll and personal data
  • Bank account and credit card numbers
  • Invoices, bills, and account balances

This information is the lifeblood of a business. It can lead to identity theft, financial fraud, compliance penalties, and irreparable damage in the wrong hands.

Yet one in three small businesses report experiencing a breach or cyber attack. As hackers grow more sophisticated, prioritizing file security is essential.

How File Corruption Compromises Security

Damaged or corrupted company files are more vulnerable to unauthorized access and data leaks. Errors open technical backdoors for attackers to exploit. Corrupted components like customer name lists also expose data.

With proper repairs, breached information can be sold on the dark web. QuickBooks File Doctor fixes corruption issues to close security gaps.

Diagnosing Security Risks

File Doctor scans thoroughly evaluate privileges and permissions settings in company files.

The diagnostics check for improper access that allows viewing, editing, or deleting confidential data. They also detect corruptions that inadvertently allow access.

You can take corrective actions to lock down security by identifying misconfigurations and gaps.

Repairing File Access Controls

QuickBooks File Doctor can reset security settings to necessary minimums if improper user privileges are found. The repair process removes unnecessary permissions that pose risks. It also fixes technical issues that erroneously grant access.

With tightened need-to-know controls, exposure to confidential data is limited.

Fixing Multi-User Login Issues

For company files used by multiple employees, File Doctor further hardens security.

It diagnoses and fixes login issues that could allow unauthorized third-party access. Proper multi-user restrictions are restored.

Repairs also resolve access conflicts between users that lead to data leakage.

Maintaining Data Integrity

QuickBooks File Doctor prevents corrupted or compromised data from persisting.

Scans identify bad transactions, activity logs, and account records. Repairs or deletion of damaged records prevents exploitation.

Routine clean-up of inaccuracies ensures the accuracy and integrity of confidential company information.

Monitoring External Access Points

Many attacks on company files originate from compromised third-party apps. File Doctor checks apps and web services connected to QB for potential security risks.

It removes revoked, outdated, or insecure apps. Validating and monitoring external access points reduces avenues of attack.
