Fraud Prevention in Dental4Windows

Taking the simple, no-fuss route by not turning on security may seem like the easiest and quickest way to get things done; however, it is unsafe and, in most cases, untraceable. It’s much safer to turn on security and allow access (so it becomes auditable) than to not have any security activated.

Using security features in your system is reliable, auditable, and secure as long as you NEVER share password information with others.
