Security and privacy are embedded
We understand that for you to realise the benefits of running your business apps in the cloud, you must be willing to entrust your cloud provider with one of your most valuable assets—your data. This is why we use the Microsoft Azure infrastructure for our apps and SQL databases. Their long experience running online services has involved extensive investment in foundational technology that builds security and privacy into the development process. Over time, they've developed industry-leading security measures and privacy policies, and participated in international compliance programs with independent verification. Easily authenticate your app users with Active Directory for added security and single sign on access to on-premises resources as well as web apps and data.
Scale your database on the fly
We use Microsoft Azure SQL Database to store the data used by our web apps. We can also help you move your existing SQL Server databases into Azure so you don't need to worry about constantly managing your database. Azure SQL Database continuously learns your app patterns and adaptively tunes itself to meet your app’s needs. When a spike in demand appears, make sure that downtime doesn’t appear along with it. SQL Database scales on the up or down on the fly – without any interruptions to your application.
Support legacy apps
We can upgrade your existing legacy apps or move them unchanged onto virtual machines in Microsoft Azure. They take care of the hardware and scaling for you so that you can easily meet the dynamic needs of your business. There’s no need to invest money and time maintaining and upgrading your on-premises servers, just manage them from the Azure portal. Alternatively, leave your legacy apps running on your local servers but update your SQL databases to Azure SQL Database for extra security and piece of mind with features like point-in-time restore.
