Safety of service LeaderTask
Data storage in the protected Microsoft Azure cloud
All user data (tasks, projects, assignments, files, etc.) are stored in the protected Microsoft Azure cloud.
Microsoft Azure is a cloud computing service created by Microsoft for building, testing, deploying, and managing applications and services through a global network of Microsoft-managed data centers.
Windows Azure runs in datacenters owned by Microsoft. They are managed by Microsoft Global Foundation Services (GFS). The datacenters are scattered around the globe and their number is still growing. Independent, third-party validation of OSSC’s approach includes Microsoft’s cloud infrastructure achieving both SAS 70 Type I and Type II attestations and ISO/IEC 27001:2005 certification.
Accessibility of servers is higher than 99,9%
The guaranteed accessibility of the Microsoft Azure servers makes 99,9%. It means that servers will be in the active (operational) status more than 99,9% of time.
All data exchanges are encrypted!
The data transferred between the device of the user and a cloud of Microsoft Azure are encrypted by means of a superreliable 256-bit key. Transport of data is made on the protected https protocol over the cryptography TLS protocol.
Highly qualified staff of Microsoft corporation
Developers and Microsoft Azure administrators have the powers necessary for execution of the obligations for control and development of this service. Microsoft created a complex of controls with support of preventive, analytical and opposing mechanisms of protection against unauthorized actions of developers and administrators:
- strict control of access to confidential data;
- combination of the controls expanding independent detection of harmful activity;
- several levels of monitoring, guiding of log and formation of the reporting.
The Microsoft corporation regularly carries out an inspection of qualification of a staff; by results of check access of a staff to apps, systems and network infrastructure is limited.
Process of gaining access to the accounting entry of the customer or the accompanying information is formalized and is initiated only at the request of the customer.
Physical security of data
Microsoft Azure works at geographically delivered objects of Microsoft corporation. Each object is intended for round-the-clock work and provides protection against possible power off, physical invasions and network failures. These data processing centers (DPC) conform to industry standards of support of physical security and reliability. They cope, controlled and administered by a staff of Microsoft.
Each data processing center has at least two sources of the electric power, including independent electric power supply. In addition the DPC is equipped with the modern fire extinguishing systems. The building of DPC is protected from action of external force majeure: natural disasters, accidents, fires, mass riots, illegal actions of the third parties, etc.
The international acceptance and applicability of ISO/IEC 27001 is the key reason why certification to this standard is at the forefront of Microsoft’s approach to implementing and managing information security. Microsoft’s achievement of ISO/IEC 27001 certification points up its commitment to making good on customer promises from a business, security compliance standpoint. Currently, both Azure Public and Azure Germany are audited once a year for ISO/IEC 27001 compliance by a third party accredited certification body, providing independent validation that security controls are in place and operating effectively.
Daily in an automatic mode the backup copy of user data is created. For backup copies the same security level, as for a specification is provided. If one of servers stops being available, then user data will be regenerated from a backup copy, and then are placed on the operational server.
Double data protection
The architecture of the LeaderTask service provides data storage at the same time in two places: a cloud of Microsoft Azure and on the user's device (computer/smartphone/tablet). Thus double reliability of data storage is reached. If as a result of any force majeur circumstances the cloud of Microsoft Azure stops being available, the user will be able to continue dataful work as the relevant copy of data is always present at the device. During the losing or breakage of the device the user will be able to recover data from a cloud.
Password on a login in the program
For data protection gain the user can set the password on a login in the program (well in versions for Windows and Mac). At the same time encrypting of user data will be included: tasks, notices, projects and assignments.
Possibility of data storage on the corporate server
Corporate customers can use a box version of service LeaderTask. The box version allows to store user data on own corporate server or in DPC. Microsoft Azure cloud is not involved in such system.
