Enterprise Security with Microsoft Azure
Easy Projects hosted accounts are powered by Microsoft Azure cloud.
Azure is an open and flexible cloud platform that runs out of a global network of managed datacenters across 34 regions. You can choose to host your data in the USA, Canada or Europe.
Azure delivers a 99.95% compute SLA. Your Easy Projects account will run on the same cloud that powers Skype, Office 365, Bing, and Xbox. 85%of Fortune 500 companies use MS Azure.
Security and Encryption
Azure provides built-in software patching, network load balancing and 24 hour-monitored physical security. Datacenters are physically constructed, managed, and monitored to shelter data and services from unauthorized access as well as environmental threats.

For data in transit, the Easy Projects uses industry-standard encrypted transport protocols SSL/HTTPS between user devices and our datacenters.
For data at rest, we offer transparent database encryption*. To protect against the threat of malicious activity MS Azure offers real-time encryption and decryption of the database, associated backups, and transaction log files.
* Available only with the Enterprise Edition of Easy Projects hosted in a Private Cloud.
To ensure secure access to project data Easy Projects offers global and project level role-based access control with 30+ granular permissions.
All Easy Projects accounts residing on Azure Cloud are taking advantage of the continuous 30-day snapshot backups. It means that if needed, your data can be restored from any point (up to a second) within the last 30 days. All backups are geo-redundant.
