Since cloud-based programs are increasingly being used in conjunction with free tax calculators and estimators, financial modeling, risk prediction as well as other financial tools, the cloud security has improved exponentially to secure the sensitive documents and information. Other than security, cloud storage is cost-effective, automated, and easily accessible for users, among other things.
