Internet Fax Is A Secure Fax Option

December 09, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 146

Perhaps you're wondering if using and online fax service is a secure fax option. Let's see if we can shed some light on this question. Probably the biggest threat to the security of a fax is after it comes out of the machine; particularly if you are at work. Very rarely will each person at a business have their own fax machine in their office. More likely there is a machine that is shared by all; or at least that floor. If you are not aware that a fax has been sent to you, it may lay around waiting for you to pick it up for who knows how long. While it's waiting for you to pick it up, an untold number of prying eyes may be looking at your fax. This is one place that an internet fax is actually more secure than traditional fax. Instead of your fax coming out of the community fax machine, it comes to your personal computer and can only be accessed when you login in with your password to your e-mail account. It stays hidden away from prying eyes until you aware that it is there and ready to read it.

Now this doesn't necessarily keep faxes you sent to others are secure. If the person that you are sending the fax to is using a traditional fax machine, who knows how many people will see it on the other side, but it will keep faxes sent to you very private and secure. Faxes that are sent to you can also be stored on your computer's hard drive, which will help keep them private and secure after delivery.

Another place where security can be an issue is in the transmission. Because an internet fax goes through an online fax service, they could be susceptible to security breaches there. That is one reason that you want to choose an online fax service that is a trusted, reputable company. Look for one that has been around for a while and has good reviews. Most online fax services protect their servers and data with state of the art encryption technology, so usually the only security breaches would be in-house by someone working there. This is a risk you generally run anywhere you do business. Some people are just dishonest, but it shouldn't reflect on the business or the product.

Online fax services are, generally speaking, very secure and internet fax as a whole is pretty secure as well. If you are leaning towards internet fax but weren't sure about the security, never fear. Internet fax is a great choice and if you choose the right service provider are just as secure or more so than a traditional fax.
