WishesKept exclusively uses Microsoft Azure and Amazon S3 for its hosting infrastructure.
Microsoft Azure has one of the most secure cloud computing platform available, and the company has the certifications to prove it.
According to Lori Woehler, principal group manager for Compliance and Trust at the software and cloud computing giant, "Microsoft Azure complies with ISO 27001 and follows the ISO 27002 best practices for comprehensive information security and risk management." ISO 27001 is a set of standards governing information security within organizations.
"This family of standards manages the security of assets such as financial information, intellectual property, employee details or information entrusted by third parties,".
Microsoft also has the British Standards Institute Americas ISO 27018 code of practice for protection of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) in public clouds.
Azure is certified for Service Organization Controls 1 and 2 Reports (SOC 1 and 2), concerning financial reporting and security, respectively. "At this time [Jan 2015], Azure is the only global cloud service provider with a report for SOC 2 Processing Integrity, which demonstrates system processing was complete, accurate, timely, and authorized," claimed Woehler.
Azure was given the stamp of approval from the Australian Government Information Security Registered Assessors Program (IRAP). "Our goal is to support customers' ability to meet unique government or data sovereignty requirements, and to accelerate deployment of key workloads to accredited cloud services," she added.
In Singapore, Azure was found in compliance of the country's strict cloud data security standards. "[Multi-Tier Cloud Security] MTCS accreditation was announced in late October 2014 for Microsoft Azure Cloud Infrastructure and Operations data centers as the first Level 1 certified end-to-end cloud services offering," said Woehler.
Microsoft is also helping to law enforcement agencies adopt the cloud. Woehler described Azure Government as "one of the first commercial infrastructure cloud platforms to meet U.S. CJIS [Criminal Justice Information Services] certification requirements for state and local governments, expanding the scope of coverage to state agencies already using Microsoft Office 365 for CJIS workloads."
