We'll do more than put it in a lockbox.
We know that your data is your life. We protect your data by closing off the loopholes by which viruses and thieves can come in and take control of your system. You won't have to learn any new operating system, but underneath it all, we're protecting you.
We utilize a custom Linux OS for our software — but you'd never know. You won't have to learn anything new, and your employees won't have access to Internet browsers or e-mail. Here's just a few benefits to using a Linux-based operating system for your point of sale.
Most viruses are written to attack Windows code because there’s little environmental diversity. When you’re running a Windows system, it’s incredibly vulnerable to viruses, trojans, and sabotage.
Aeris POS solutions feature local and cloud-based redundancy. Our synchronization method keeps the local network integrity in tact while maintaining upstream accuracy, which ensures that your data is fully protected at each level. You never have to worry about data loss with Aeris solutions.
On top of that, Linux stops the damage from social engineering viruses and malware because users don’t have root access. While these viruses have an easy time spreading on Windows devices, there are more steps and more warning flags on Linux machines to prevent users from accidentally spreading dangerous malware throughout the entire system.
Access levels are completely at your control with Aeris POS solutions. You decide who has access to what information, and we make it happen. We believe that you should be able to distribute and use your own data however you want, and we’ll work with you to make that happen.
