Migrate to the cloud

Work from anywhere

With red flare based in the Cloud, all you need is a browser and access to the Internet. The service is available 24/7 from anywhere at anytime. Just connect over our encrypted connection using your logon credentials (URL, username and password) and the system is available.

No capital expenditure

With red flare in the Cloud you make no capital investment as we provide and manage the server resources required to give you a robust, secure service. We have deployed red flare on the Microsoft Azure cloud infrastructure which is available in 140 countries. We chose Microsoft Azure because of its investment in the latest infrastructure technologies, with its focus on high reliability, operational excellence, high availability and its trustworthy reputation.

Security
  1. a) Microsoft Azure uses multiple safeguards to protect customer and enterprise data. They have adopted the ISO/IEC 27018 standard as their code of practice for cloud privacy.

 

  1. b) We at red flare have, as an additional security measure, commissioned separate penetration testing by a third-party firm of Web and Internet security specialists to ensure that our Azure environment has no vulnerabilities.

 

  1. c) We have also installed SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption certificates as a further security barrier. This is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and your browsers remain private and integral.

 

  1. d) Your stored data is secure in our cloud environment. We use the Microsoft Azure Backup and Recover function to backup your data on a nightly basis. This function is monitored on a continuous basis to ensure execution. We have a 30 day retention policy in place.

 

Reliability

With red flare in the Cloud your computing is much more reliable and consistent than on an in-house IT infrastructure. Microsoft Azure provides a high availability configuration to support 24/7/365 uptime.
