The Superior Security Of Internet Fax

By Image for expert article
In a time of fraud, phishing, identity theft and privacy issues, security has become a very important aspect of everyday life. Whether at home or at the office diligence must be taken to protect sensitive information from lurking thieves and roaming eyes. One of the most unsecured areas of our everyday communications are faxes. However, the superior security of an Internet fax solution can protect your information in ways simply not possible with a standard fax machine.

Incoming Faxes

  • With a standard fax machine all communications come into one location and are printed out for anyone to see that happens to walk by. An internet fax solution allows you to have your faxes sent to an email address or viewed in a secure, pin protected web interface. Those sent to an email address can also be zipped into a pin protected file.
  • A standard fax machine prints out every fax that comes in whether you want it to or not. With an Internet fax solution you choose which faxes you want to print and which you will simply store on your PC for later use or reference.
  • If you are one of the many companies that are going to digital storage for their files and records, all standard faxes need to be scanned and then put into your digital storage solution. With Internet fax, your faxes are already in digital format so you can eliminate the additional step of scanning and additional time your documents are not secure.
  • A standard fax prints everything, including spam, violating your rights. An Internet fax solution will only print the faxes that you want and you can block spammers from faxing you again in the future.

Outgoing Faxes

  • A standard fax machine requires you to stand and wait until your fax transmission is finished lest you leave your confidential documents unattended.
  • An Internet fax is sent from your computer. There is no need to stand around waiting to ensure that roaming eyes don't pick up your confidential information.
Internet fax allows you to protect your sensitive and confidential fax communications in ways that are just not possible with standard fax. It is a secure digital solution for a digital age.
