Network Security and BC/DR
Updated 12:30 PM PST, Mon Sep 14, 2020
One of the key factors in a product selection process is the product's security and business continuity/disaster recovery (BC/DR) capabilities. These are very important considerations as it does not matter how great a product’s features and capabilities are, if it is not secure, it will not be selected. Security, in our day and age, is tantamount in selecting a product. Everybody wants to sleep easy at night, and not have to worry about a breach. Khamelia is highly secured. We selected Microsoft Azure because of its security around its SaaS services. Taking in account the Microsoft Azure security and couple that with our Khamelia security, it is the most secure business software suite offering on the market today.

Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity
The Khamelia dedicated servers at Microsoft Azure Data Centers offer continuous backup and business continuity. In addition to 24/7/365 onsite security, the servers are monitored 24/7 to assess system health, optimal performance and early detection of problems and have a dedicated immediate response team.
Khamelia has processes that require full redundancy with our network infrastructure, from Tier 1 Premium Bandwidth, to uninterruptible power supplies with redundant battery cabinets, to state-of-the-art environmental conditions and onsite security, the Microsoft Azure Data Centers support all of those redundancy requirements, feature several zones for added redundancy within the region, as well as geographic redundancy for disaster recovery.
Using a combination of manual and automated processes and tools, Khamelia continuously monitors for security threats and has protocols in place to investigate and remediate any vulnerabilities.
Business Continuity Testing
In addition to our disaster recovery plan, Microsoft Azure and its data centers operate with a business continuity plan. That plan calls for regularly testing to ensure network infrastructure and security processes are working according to plan. Our Business Continuity Plan is a comprehensive approach to restoring all systems as quickly as possible in the event of any service interruption.
Khamelia, on Microsoft Azure, has secured data in several ways, including the implementation and regular management of system firewalls. Engineers regularly apply tests to the firewall to ensure operability and compliance with the latest threats to cyber security. In addition, our servers are built with full redundancy in order to secure data in the event of any impacts.
