3 Benefits of Azure Hosting for Aura Connect

Above all else, Aura Connect aims to connect your organization, team members and clients with voice services that meet the highest standards across the board. To achieve that, we’ve built Aura Connect entirely on Microsoft Azure.

Read on as we discuss the benefits of the Azure platform, from security to compliance.

1. Security

First and foremost, Microsoft Azure provides confidentiality, integrity and availability of customer data, while also enabling transparent accountability. Utilizing Azure’s security tools and services, Aura Connect can continuously monitor all components for threats, vulnerabilities and security risk.

All voice traffic remains in a protected network at all times, so there’s no need for SBC intra-communication over the public internet. In short, that minimizes the number of potential threats without any compromise on quality.

On top of all that, Azure data centres are compliant with industry standards for physical security, with all of them managed, monitored and administered by Microsoft operations personnel.

2. Reliability

Intruders aren’t the only threat to your voice services. Downtime can provide just as much disruption to your day-to-day operations. Thankfully, this is another area where Azure excels. Azure runs alongside other Microsoft services in well distributed Microsoft facilities, paired strategically at least 300 miles apart from one-another to provide failover in case of a regional disaster.

Moreover, SBC stacks are split across different Azure regions (availability zones) to provide maximum uptime, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year. Whether it’s a power failure or network outage, there’s no risk of disruption to your service, across the globe. That’s all complemented by connection through Azure’s backend network, which offers the lowest possible latency.

3. Compliance

With Aura Connect built on Microsoft Azure, you don’t have to worry about compliance either. Microsoft conducts annual internal audits paired with rigorous external audits to comply with a wide range of certifications and standards, including ISO 27001, ISO 27018, IEC 27001, SSAE16 SOC 1 and SOC 2, HIPAA, GDPR, PIA and EU Model Clauses (EUMC).

Security is also Tier-D compliant, meaning you get full encryption for all native routing.
