Secure Cloud Hosting - Microsoft Azure

MapBusinessOnline is Software as a Service (SaaS) Cloud tool hosted via Microsoft Azure. Microsoft Azure provides businesses with the data security and privacy, control, and transparency they require.

Microsoft Azure uses multiple safeguards to protect customer and enterprise data. These security practices and technologies include:

Encryption – Azure uses industry-standard protocols to encrypt data as it travels between devices and Microsoft datacenters, and crosses within datacenters.

Secure networks – Azure infrastructure relies on security practices and technologies to connect virtual machines to each other and to on-premises datacenters, while blocking unauthorized traffic.

Threat management Microsoft Antimalware protects Azure services and virtual machines. Microsoft also uses intrusion detection, denial-of-service (DDoS) attack prevention, penetration testing, data analytics, and machine learning to constantly strengthen its defense and reduce risks.

Compliance – Azure complies with both international and industry-specific compliance standards and participates in rigorous third-party audits.
