There are many remote backups options to the "cloud" by many cloud hosting companies. We now offer cloud backups of your FileMaker solution, but with a FileMaker benefit. We offer that if you have a disaster at your location, we will begin hosting your remote backup solution on our server so that in the event of a disaster, you just let us know what has happened and we will promote your backup solution to a live server on our FileMaker server until you can restore services to your location. Most solutions are just $30 a month. Contact us if he can help you with backup and disaster recovery plans. We can also help with Security plans.

We can offer additional security by setting up 2 factor authentication for your FileMaker solutions. You already have a single factor authentication when you log in with a User ID and password. The second factor authentication would be validating the computer that you are using. Computers have a type of serial number or VIN called a Persistent ID. The 2nd factor would allow only authorized computers to connect. If you need to add a new computer, you can approve the new hardware in your database or you can have the system automatically send an email with code to authorize use of the new hardware. But this code can only be sent to employees with a known company email address. With 2 Factor authentication, even if someone from overseas gets your User ID and password, they would not be able to access your database. The cost for two factor authentication is $500 per server and $25 for each additional database on the server.  Note that due to limitations with FileMaker security, this 2nd factor authentication is performed at the scripting level and not the security level.

 

 

It is a frequent request to exchange information between the Quickbooks application and FileMaker. Knowing and understanding the Quickbooks schema can help. Since we found ourselves regularly recreating the Quickbooks schema in FileMaker, we decided to develop FileMaker solution that has all of the Quickbooks schema in it AND has the ability to update it according to the www.QODBC.com web site that maintains the latest Quickbooks schema. The database is available to download here with the updates as of October 2015. You can erase re-run the udpate script to find new fields in the schema, but the update script requires the Monkey Break Software plugin to work. We hope this helps you with any Quickbooks projects you have. QB Schema File (uu encoded) (November 2015) Note that this is not the schema associated with Quickbooks Online.  UPDATE: Quickbooks online now has an API to talk with FileMaker via fmQBO from Geist Interactive.  We recommend this API as an effective way to share information between FileMaker and Quickbooks Online.

A number of our clients use Macs and we are a Mac friendly business. Apple's operating system has been less vulnerable than Windows and because of this, many Mac users have been lax about security. We encourage our clients to keep up with the OS security updates and be no more than 1 version back from the current OS from Apple.  This is important if staff are using computers to manage mission critical business information.

WHO WE ARE

We specialize in designing reasonably priced secure FileMaker databases for small to medium sized businesses, and making mobile solutions with FileMaker Go for iPads and iPhones. We also support Mac OS X server including the popular and inexpensive Mac Mini server. We are able to handle complete deployments including setting up FileMaker to work with Directory Authentication Services and Web Services. We also work with your local IT department to integrate FileMaker networking and security.

 

Many of our clients also have need to integrate FileMaker with existing database solutions and we have experience integrating FileMaker with Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server and MySQL databases. FileMaker Go on the iPad and iPhone can also access FileMaker Servers as well as SQL databases! Please contact us if you want your iPad or iPhone to securely access corporate data and we can make that happen!

 

We have a special appreciation for the Mac platform, but equally support both Windows and Mac platforms for FileMaker database development.
