Security and Compliance with TLS

Alpine Software leverages Microsoft Azure for hosting RedNMX’s cloud server due to the significant strides Microsoft has taken in ensuring data security and compliance. Microsoft’s stringent requirements for Transport Layer Security (TLS) offer a vital safeguard for connections to its services. Through TLS encryption, all data in transit is shielded from interception by unauthorized entities. The use of strong cipher suites and client certificate authentication further enhances security while adhering to correct configurations for seamless compliance. RedNMX’s direct SQL server connection with TLS to Azure SQL databases ensures fire department data remains shielded from a range of cyber threats.
