Why it is best to run a POS System as isolated as possible

When your Point of Sale System was set up, we did much to get it to work, and so many decisions were made. Some are crucial.

A few days ago, in a cafe running our system, a staff's boyfriend added an email processor to the system. It brought the whole system down. All that was required was one change in a drivers device.   It took a long time to get that system back to work. 

Letting unauthorised people get into your system is inviting a problem.

Besides, it is a business system! If a staff member wants to access their private emails, tell them to use their smartphone. You can make a staff and/or public WI-FI account just for this purpose.
