Features

Why is this important?

When we speak of security, the concept of cloud computing makes some taxidermists very uneasy. We’ve all heard about the high-profile hacks and data leaks on the news. But the reality is, if your computer is ever connected to the internet, even to check email, Taxi.net, Facebook®, or whatever then your computer is just as susceptible to the same threats as these larger companies.


The Microsoft cloud is constantly under attack. In fact, they thwart over 1.5 million attempts each day! But they also employ over 3,500 security engineers and invest over a Billion dollars a year in cloud security. The lengths that Microsoft goes to protect their user’s data makes their cloud computing platforms exceedingly safe. That’s the very reason we chose to build Taxidermy Direct® on the Microsoft Azure cloud.


Microsoft protects your shop data using the latest security encryption, plus they back it up every day, automatically. Hopefully, you’ll never be the victim of a natural disaster. But when the next hurricane, flood, fire, or tornado strikes, your business records will be safe with Taxidermy Direct®, easily accessible via the internet.


We are striving to be the best taxidermy software in the industry and your feedback is essential.


Thank you,

John Jennings
