Fax machines were designed in the 1800s and made popular in the 70s. But while innovative for their time, they are not built for modern data security threats. Fax machines are easy to hack and come with a wealth of other problems, such as the increased risk of human error and a high chance of unauthorised file access. These risks can create major problems for businesses, especially in light of new GDPR laws. eFax, however, features a wealth of security benefits that help to secure your documents and bring fax data security in line with 21st-century demands.
