This year has seen governments advising businesses to ensure that any software used is up-to-date and using Multi Factor Authentication when logging in to these systems. The UK National Cyber Security Centre has published an article in April 2022 https://www.ncsc.gov.uk/news/uk-joins-international-partners-to-issue-advice-on-latest-russian-cyber-threat- that specifically states:
Several immediate actions for all organisations to take to protect their networks are set out in the advisory, which include:
prioritising the patching of known exploited vulnerabilities
enforcing multi-factor authentication (MFA)
monitoring remote desktop protocol (RDP) and
providing end-user awareness and training
Therefore, we highly recommend as a technology partner, providing services for critical business systems, that you look at all of these factors which could compromise your accounting system and allow you to make an informed decision for your business.
The priority should be for businesses to bring their accounting software up to a supported version, that ensures that any patches or security updates from Sage, Microsoft or SAP are applied and keep your systems safe. We are fast approaching a watershed in the software industry where old software will not work under the new tighter security system. You may have already seen this with web browsers. This is now spilling over into general line-of business software and preventing some systems from running. There will be no way to make the old software run with later security in place.
Another thing to bear in mind and something that Oakuity Ltd have been investigating is the best of breed MFA solutions in the market and we as a business can offer this service for any system on your network for as little as £7.00 per user per month. This is not just for your Sage 300 servers, but for any server on your network.
If your company already has Cyber Insurance in place, it is likely you will not be covered if your systems are out of date and unsupported.

The race for business success is a road filled with both rewards and potential pitfalls. Constantly striving for improvement is the backbone of business and commerce, but whether we can achieve that is often down to the tools at our disposal.
The insurance industry in general is a paper heavy environment. Countless administration tasks, forms and contracts mean data accumulation can easily reach breaking point, fast.

An ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system is a vital piece of software that helps businesses streamline their processes and remain ahead of the curve against competitors. You may already have an ERP system implemented within your organisation but are starting to question the effectiveness of your current set up. Costs may be running higher than anticipated, your competitors are gaining ground on your business or the system is incapable of managing the needs of your expanding organisation. Whatever the reasoning it's always a good idea to reassess your systems and their effectiveness to find out what isn't working for you and your business.
