Escrow as a Service aims to help organisations run smoothly as they move to Azure
Microsoft and IT security company NCC Group have created Escrow as a Service (EaaS) to help organisations run smoothly as they migrate to the Microsoft Azure cloud.
The solution, which includes state-of-the-art protection and legal contracts, has been designed to take care of compliance issues and create a resilient system in the cloud for the most sensitive and critical parts of a business.
“Our increasingly connected world is accelerating towards a future based in the cloud,” said Ollie Whitehouse, chief technical officer at NCC. “As a business, we are continuously innovating to protect and secure our customers’ critical assets. EaaS marks a huge step forward in providing a complete cloud resilience solution for business, giving confidence and peace of mind to innovate with new and emerging technology.”
EaaS offers two different solutions. ‘Access’ gives users the ability to directly access their servers on the cloud if they want to use their own applications, while ‘Replicate’ duplicates data so customers can access a mirrored version of their information.
“EaaS is enabling organisations to meet modern business challenges, while realising the many benefits of cloud technology,” said Michael Wignall, director of Azure Business at Microsoft UK. “We have already seen companies in the retail and financial sectors adopt this solution and embrace a new way of working that’s fit for the 21st century and into the future. We are excited about this collaboration with NCC Group.”
