    You data and the AskCody® experience is safe with Microsoft Azure!

    AskCody® is built on Microsoft Azure

    We understands that in order to realize the benefits of cloud computing you as a company must be willing to trust your cloud provider with your data. When you invest in a cloud service, you must be able to trust that your data is safe, that data privacy is protected, and that you own and control your data in all its uses.

    That's why we benefit from Microsoft’s unmatched scale and experience running trusted enterprise cloud services around the globe and why AskCody® is built on Microsoft Azure.

    We leverage Microsoft’s deep investments in technology, operational processes, and expertise to provide a trusted platform for the AskCody® solution.

    With Microsoft as our supplier of cloud services, we can take advantage of the Azure cloud more quickly while reducing security and compliance costs and minimizing risk to your organization.

    What is Azure?

    Azure is an open and flexible cloud platform that enables us to quickly build, deploy and manage services and applications across a global network of Microsoft-managed datacenters.

    Always up. Always on.

    Azure delivers a 99.95% monthly SLA and enables us to build and run our services and applications without focusing on the infrastructure, security, data compliances and certifications.

    Azure is available in multiple datacenters around the world, enabling us to deploy our applications close to you as well as providing geo redundancy. 

    Due to AskCody® being built on Microsoft Azure we leverage Microsofts compliance program. Microsoft enterprise cloud services are independently validated through certifications and attestations, as well as third-party audits. In-scope services within the Microsoft Cloud meet key international and industry-specific compliance standards, such as ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27018, FedRAMP, and SOC 1 and SOC 2. They also meet regional and country-specific standards and contractual commitments, including the EU Model Clauses, UK G-Cloud, Singapore MTCS, and Australia CCSL (IRAP).
