Why cloud security businesses use a proposal tool instead of Microsoft Word
Many cloud security still use Microsoft Word or some other word processor to create their quotations. A previously created template is modified manually and then sent as a PDF. Sounds easy, but in practice this takes a lot of time, the chance of errors is high and you no longer have insight into your proposal after sending.
With the use of a proposal tool it has become a lot easier and better for entrepreneurs. You still use templates as a basis, but now you have a full content library in which you can search and reuse texts. The chance of errors is minimal due to smart automation. And after sending you can still adjust your proposal and you will get insight when your customer views the proposal. The modern interactive presentation options make an impression and the option to digitally sign makes it very easy for a customer to agree.
The following blog will elaborate on how to make perfect quotations with the right tool: Read more why Microsoft Word is not the best way to create proposals

Why smart software is important for businesses in the cloud security sector
Cloud Security companies are quickly realizing the benefits of quoting and proposal software. Today’s sales cycle is much shorter than it used to be, and a lot of this has to do with the fact that customers are able to easily research companies online before making a purchase. The Cloud Security industry is growing rapidly, but so is the competition. This means that you need to be able to deliver a good proposal and then follow up with the customer if they don’t accept right away.
The term Cloud Computing refers to the use of a computer network for the provision of a wide range of services that are based on the use of hardware and software resources. A cloud computing environment may consist of both the virtualized infrastructure and the software applications, which are hosted on it. It is operated on a self-service basis and requires little or no human interaction with the technology itself. This helps in achieving more efficient and higher scalability, reduced IT infrastructure costs, etc. Cloud Computing has revolutionized the way we do business today. It is believed that cloud computing will become an integral part of every business in the future. The amount of businesses using cloud technology is rapidly increasing and is expected to continue to do so for the foreseeable future. The term "Cloud Security" refers to securing all the information being processed in a cloud environment against unauthorized access, alteration, or destruction. Cloud security can be ensured by various methods like encryption, identity management, authorization, data security, etc. It is very important to implement adequate cloud security measures to protect any sensitive data being processed in a cloud environment. The most common types of cloud-based applications are web applications (both public and private), online storage services, email services, virtual machine (VM) hosting services, Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS). There are many challenges related to securing cloud applications against malicious attacks such as malware injection, denial-of-service attacks, phishing scams, web application attacks, data breaches due to misconfiguration issues, insider threats etc. However, the importance of implementing proper security measures for securing these applications against such attacks cannot be emphasized enough.
