At Checkify, we take security and reliability very seriously, which is why we've partnered with Azure to help us achieve these goals. Azure is a cloud computing service created by Microsoft, and it provides us with a range of tools and services that allow us to keep our platform secure and running smoothly.
Our entire architecture is based on Microsoft Azure Cloud platform.
One of the key benefits of using Azure is that we can leverage its global network of data centers. Azure has data centers located in regions all around the world, which allows us to ensure that our platform is always available and accessible to our users, no matter where they are located.
Azure's data centers are also highly secure. They use a range of physical, logical, and operational measures to protect our data and infrastructure, including:
24/7 physical security: Azure data centers are staffed with security personnel around the clock, and access is tightly controlled with biometric authentication, video surveillance, and other measures.
Network security: Azure uses a range of tools and services to protect our network from cyberattacks, including firewalls, virtual private networks (VPNs), and intrusion detection systems (IDS).
Data encryption: Azure uses advanced encryption technologies to protect our data both in transit and at rest.
Disaster recovery: Azure provides us with robust disaster recovery tools and services, which allow us to quickly recover from any disruptions or outages.
Using Azure also helps us to scale our platform as our business grows. Azure's flexible infrastructure allows us to quickly and easily add more resources as needed, without having to worry about the underlying hardware.
Overall, we believe that our partnership with Azure is a key factor in helping us to deliver a secure and reliable platform to our users. If you have any further questions about how we use Azure, please don't hesitate to contact us.
Our commitment to providing secure products is reinforced by our partnership with the Cyber Defence Operations Centre at Microsoft, which boasts 3,500 dedicated cybersecurity professionals. With an annual investment of over a billion dollars into cybersecurity, this team of experts works tirelessly to monitor and respond to potential security threats. By relying on this team's expertise, we can focus our resources on developing and delivering the best possible products for our customers, knowing that their data is in good hands.
To provide a secure and user-friendly authentication experience, we utilize Azure Active Directory B2C (Azure AD B2C), a cloud-based identity and access management service. Azure AD B2C provides us with a range of tools and services that allow us to easily authenticate and manage user identities, while ensuring that our user's data is protected. With Azure AD B2C, we can support a wide range of identity providers, including social login options like Facebook and Google, as well as custom login options for our customers. This helps us to provide a seamless and secure experience for our users, no matter how they choose to authenticate.
Data Centers, Backups, and Monitoring
To ensure that our platform is always available and performing optimally, we leverage Azure's global network of data centers.
With Azure, we can easily deploy our services across multiple regions, which helps us to ensure that our users can access our platform quickly and reliably, no matter where they are located. Additionally, we use Azure Backup to automatically back up our data and services, so that we can quickly recover from any disruptions or outages.
To monitor the performance and health of our infrastructure, we use a range of Azure tools and services, including Azure Monitor and Azure Application Insights. These tools allow us to track key performance metrics and identify potential issues before they become major problems.
By using these tools and services, we can provide our users with a high-quality experience, while also ensuring that their data is always secure and protected.
