The Faxts About the Fax
Could email security concerns drive a fax industry revival?
Recent reports on fax usage show that faxes – particularly those utilizing fax over IP, or FoIP – are seeing a spike in usage in (not surprisingly) the high-risk industries being targeted by hackers and phishers: Healthcare, Finance, Government, and Education. Cloud faxing or online fax services seems a very apt idea in these times being increasingly menaced by ransomware. It seems IP faxing could, in effect, come to replace email as the favorite method of electronic communications of many. With a third-party IP fax services company overseeing security and data management, the prospect looks appealing to those using Outlook, Gmail, and especially Yahoo or Hotmail. (If there is anyone left still using the latter two.)
With cloud faxing, you can effectively plan ahead, using a cloud cost calculator, and project expenditures based on how many faxes you might send and receive, either quarterly or annually. There are also fax on-premises, or Fax over IP feature that allows you to fax directly from your iPad, iPhone, or other device. Surely, other IT service providers (such as Web-based fax services for small businesses) will catch on to this current trend away from email and towards (or reversion) to fax technology as a primary means of business communications. It may also strike a nice chord with those who relied on faxes for inter-office communications back in the day, and who find it to be like a long-ignored friend who’s still there for them.
