Amberlo vs Excel #2/10 – Better Information Security

Working with matters is related to confidential client information. Very often disclosure or loss of confidential information can result in huge financial losses and harm business reputation. Therefore information security must be treated seriously.


Excel was built for individual users and does not ensure information security. Excel files can be password protected, but this mechanism can be easily hacked and is not secure enough. Excel does not allow to set access rights for individual users. Excel file can be easily copied to a USB stick or sent via email, therefore it is practically impossible to control who has access to the information and especially to restrict such access if you need to.


Amberlo stores information at the worldwide leader Amazon AWS data center and it can only be accessed by authorized users. The system administrator can grant or restrict access to the information at any time. Documents and other sensible information stored in Amberlo are encrypted. Amberlo has multilayer architecture where each layer implements security mechanisms and is protected by a firewall. This minimizes unauthorized access possibility.

Conclusion: Amberlo maximally ensures information security and allows accessing information only for authorized users.
