Application Security at Deployed
Security is a paramount concern for Deployed, reflecting our commitment to building trust with our customers.
Recognizing that you entrust us with your most critical business information, we prioritize the protection of your data's confidentiality, integrity, and accessibility. This unwavering dedication to data security remains our top priority.
All our customers' data is hosted on Microsoft Azure services, and Microsoft Azure's defense-in-depth approach safeguards data at multiple levels, ensuring robust protection throughout their infrastructure.
Azure employs robust encryption and data classification measures to protect sensitive information. Data is classified based on its importance and sensitivity, with role-based access controls, data masking, and data loss prevention policies ensuring that data is accessible only to authorized users.
Azure emphasizes secure coding practices and conducts regular code reviews to prevent software vulnerabilities. Advanced authentication methods and identity management are in place to control access to applications and services, while continuous monitoring and threat detection systems help identify and respond to any anomalies or suspicious activities.
Azure's defense-in-depth extends to virtual machines and compute resources, incorporating security features like secure boot, trusted platform modules, and host protection modules to guard against malware and unauthorized access. Isolation techniques and role-based access controls minimize exposure to potential threats.
Azure deploys firewalls, intrusion detection, and prevention systems to monitor network traffic and thwart unauthorized access. Virtual private networks (VPNs) and secure communication channels ensure safe data transmission, with network segmentation limiting lateral movement within the network. For further information about our network security program, please refer to our dedicated resource on network and infrastructure security. (add link to network and infrastructure doc)
Perimeter security encompasses physical measures like fencing, video surveillance, and the presence of guards, complemented by advanced access controls and intrusion detection systems. This level serves to prevent unauthorized access to Azure data centres and critical infrastructure.
Policies & Access
Azure enforces stringent access policies based on roles and responsibilities. Role-based access control (RBAC) allows for fine-grained control over permissions, ensuring that users have appropriate access to resources based on their roles.
Microsoft Azure data centres are meticulously designed with physical security in mind, featuring multiple layers of protection such as biometric authentication, security personnel, and stringent access controls. These data centres are built to withstand natural disasters and are geographically dispersed to ensure resilience.
This multi-layered approach ensures that data in Azure is protected at every level, from the physical infrastructure to the applications and the data itself, making it a robust defense-in-depth strategy for data security.
