Data and appliction security with Windows Azure
Perfode takes privacy of your data seriously. Your data and the application you use to access that data are hosted on Microsoft's cloud using Windows Azure and SQL Azure which are Microsoft’s flagship cloud platform technologies. Windows Azure operates in the Microsoft Global Foundation Services (GFS) infrastructure. In addition to the internationally recognized ISO 27001 standard, Microsoft Corporation is a signatory to Safe Harbor and is committed to fulfill all of its obligations under the Safe Harbor Framework.
Windows Azure runs in geographically distributed Microsoft facilities. Each facility is designed to run 24 x 7 and employs various measures to help protect operations from power failure, physical intrusion, and network outages. These data centers comply with industry standards for physical security and reliability and they are managed, monitored, and administered by Microsoft operations personnel. They are designed for lights out operation.
Restricted Facilities Access
Access to the facilities is limited to a very small number of operations personnel who must regularly change their administrative access credentials.
Power Redundancy and Failover
Each data center facility has a minimum of two sources of electrical power, including a power generation capability for extended off-grid operation. Environmental controls are self-contained and remain operational as long as the facility and contained systems remain online.
