FileMaker Pro, a base platform for building customized business software, allows those who create custom solutions for business to build in advanced security measures.
“Online security has got to be a priority for any business that has computerized records,” said Bob Shockey, president of The Alchemy Consulting Group, a company that creates custom business software on the FileMaker Pro platform. “It doesn’t matter what kind of business it is. Hackers are stealing information from dental clinics, hardware stores as well as banks. You have to make sure your files are as secure as possible.”
The Alchemy Group attacks the security issue in two ways. First, it uses FileMaker Pro to create custom business applications. FileMaker Pro is less of a target for hackers than some of the other more-well-known software platforms. The second and most important line of defense is the customized software created on the FileMaker Pro platform.
“Just because FileMaker Pro is less well known does not mean it’s bullet proof. Just like every software platform, people are trying to hack it and exploit weaknesses,” Mr. Shockey said. “That’s where customized security features come in. We know what hackers look for in a computer system. We can set up protocols to help protect your data from malicious attacks.”
The Alchemy Consulting Group keeps abreast of all the latest security updates, patches, flaws and hacker attacks on the base software. As soon as they learn about a way the system can be exploited, they implement methods to defeat the attack.
“Unfortunately, a lot of attacks come from within. That’s a security problem we can also address,” Mr. Shockey said. “In addition to the customized business solutions software, we offer security threat assessments. How secure is your system? We’ll tell you.”
Created by Apple computing, FileMaker Pro allows programmers to create custom business software solutions that meet the needs of individual businesses. The Alchemy Consulting Group has been working with FileMaker Pro for 15 years. The company has learned what it takes to provide online security in a mobile computing marketplace.
