Is your Accountant protecting your privacy and identity?

Wednesday, April 15th, 2015

Everyone always harps on the necessity of privacy when discussing health care, government, and banking communications.  It is surprising how little attention is paid to email security with regards to accounting and tax preparation.   There is a real danger of identity theft, unintended information disclosure, as well as invasion of privacy when using tax preparation services or organizations that do not use secure email.  Why is this?

Your Documents – Online, Secured, and Shared

Friday, August 31st, 2012

Online document storage and collaboration is a hot topic, especially when it involves security, HIPAA compliance, complex sharing scenarios, and advanced file management features.

Health care providers seek simple but compliant document storage, sharing, and retrieval solutions that replace storage on jump drives and laptops. Web developers enjoy automatically archiving the contents of web form posts (e.g. contact forms, inquires, orders, etc.) in backed-up, web-accessible document storage locations.  Businesses constantly ask about setting up myriads of file shares with complex logic as to who has what kinds of access to the files.

LuxSci’s free WebAides collaboration suite includes “Documents”,  our full-featured storage service.  In the following sections, we address how WebAides Documents can be used in various scenarios.

Organize Your Documents, Calendars, Tasks, Contacts in nested sub-folders

Friday, May 4th, 2012

LuxSci’s WebAides empower you to collaborate on Calendars, Tasks, Contacts, Files, Links, Notes, Passwords, and more.

While you could always create multiple Documents containers for storing files, or multiple Address Books for contacts, there was not a way to organize via a nested file/folder structure (like the file structure on your computer) or to have Task lists organized in a hierarchical manner.

Mobile Site Access to Encrypted Blogs and Files

Friday, April 6th, 2012

LuxSci’s Blog and File/Document WebAides have a great feature to optionally encrypt individual entries:

  • The File and Blog entry data is PGP-encrypted “at rest” (while stored on the servers).
  • Only your specified recipients (users or groups of users) can decrypt the data (even LuxSci staff cannot decrypt the data unless you give us your passwords).
  • Ideal for HIPAA or the storage of other very sensitive data.

While encrypted entries have been available for many years, access to the encrypted data via LuxSci’s Mobile Site is new.  Users can now login from their mobile device to our fast and slick mobile portal and unlock this data, view the secure content, and download decrypted files.

You no longer have to be separated from your sensitive data, just because all you have on you is your phone!

The Mobile Site will soon be expanded to enable editing and creation of new secure entries as well.
