GGA places a heavy emphasis on security, so teaming up with Azure was a no-brainer. Azure offers 3 tiers of protection: Infrastructure as a service (IaaS), Platform as a service (PaaS) and Software as a service (SaaS). The emPower Digital Boardroom Platform is SaaS that sits on Azure's PaaS, similar to Office 365.
The best offense is a great defense. By creating a layered approach to cloud security, both in physical data centers and across services, Azure can slow down a cyber-attack. If one layer is breached, there is a back-up in place to prevent further exposure. This approach further protects GGA clients from having their information accessed from unauthorized sources.
