Lions, Tigers & Bears, Oh My!

Screen scraping, ransomware, and weather disasters, oh my! Unlike Dorothy, the Scarecrow, and the Tin Man finding the Cowardly Lion during their walk through the Enchanted Forest in The Wizard of Oz and really having nothing to fear, your software can be susceptible to some scary possibilities.

Our land & vitals software was designed by county-savvy, US-based developers who understand that data integrity is essential for your operations. By keeping our development and support here in the USA, we don’t run the risk of outsourced coding which can leave holes that allow insertion of malware and other dangerous “bugs”. Our public search is secure from screen scraping, protecting your county’s revenue generation, ensuring that YOU control YOUR data. And if/when you require support, you will reach a customer-friendly, American-based DPS staff member.

Yes, ransomware is becoming more widespread and county government is a frequent target. Do you have a plan in place if your county is hit? In August 2019, 23 Texas cities were hit in a targeted attack and it took several days for some of them to get back to “normal” operations. If you subscribe to our cloud-based service, Bastion, you’re fully protected against these malicious attacks. DPS will take on ransomware responsibilities and will have you back up and running within 4-6 hours, not days.

The same holds true in a natural disaster. The DPS Bastion service provides a level of redundancy not seen before in our market. With complete back-up locations in Iowa and New Jersey, your data and images will continue to be available in the unlikely event of a flood, tornado or other unforeseen disaster.

If you’d like more details about our cloud-based Land and Vitals software, contact us today. We’d be happy to meet with you to show you other Bastion benefits for your office.
