Enhanced Security and Improved Reliability

We are happy to announce that last week we completed the migration of BlueCamroo from a major data center in Toronto, Canada into Microsoft Azure cloud. This move brings with it several benefits for BlueCamroo users:

  • Increased performance and user experience, globally
  • Improved Disaster Recovery capabilities
  • Enhanced Security

Increased performance and User Experience Globally

Microsoft Azure is a leading platform for cloud hosting. Azure gives visibility into the health and performance of its infrastructure. This allows us to easily collect data from any source and get insights that will allow us to enhance the performance of BlueCamroo

It will also allow us to address issues faster, making sure BlueCamroo users get better performance.

Improved Disaster Recovery capabilities

Your business should run like a well-oiled machine, a minor outage can be disruptive and halt your operations. Azure allows BlueCamroo to be prepared with a business continuity plan that includes disaster recovery for major unforeseen circumstance.

Enhanced Security - General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)

On April 14th, 2018 the European Union approved new regulations, GDPR, that will protect anybody who accesses the Internet from Europe.  These regulations define the expectations of how much protection people are entitled to when they are entering their personal data onto a website. They also define what companies are expected to do if a data breach occurs and outlines penalties if the regulations are not followed.

These new regulations are NOT constrained to EU citizens or European companies, they protect anyone who enters their information online while in Europe. So if you’re a North American company and you have a user that is entering their information onto your website from their vacation in Brussels then you are still subject to the GDPR.

Moving to Microsoft Azure increases the already high level of protection that we guard our clients’ data.

From session encryption, or data encryption at source to a very granular permission structure BlueCamroo addresses data security head on, and above and beyond what is legislated. BlueCamroo also will not View, Use, Share or Sell client data without explicit permission.
