On-Prem Servers vs. Cloud Servers with RedNMX

Alpine Software Corporation, the leading provider of fire department records management software (RMS), announces a transformative shift towards cloud-based servers for its flagship product, RedNMX. This move aims to empower fire departments to enhance their efficiency, effectiveness, and data security like never before.

Cloud Servers

Addressing On-Prem Server Challenges

Fire departments have long relied on on-premises servers for records management, but this approach comes with challenges such as time-consuming maintenance, backups, and the cost of insuring sensitive data. Recent incidents, like those at Montclair and Huntington stations, highlight the risks and liabilities associated with local servers. RedNMX’s cloud-based servers offer a robust solution to these challenges.

RedNMX Cloud Server: Advantages in Focus

  • Unparalleled Security: Utilizing TLS encryption and Microsoft Azure’s SQL Server, RedNMX ensures the highest level of security for sensitive information.
  • Seamless Accessibility: The cloud-based architecture allows fire department personnel to access critical records from any location with internet connectivity.
  • Continuous Operations: Cloud-based servers guarantee uninterrupted access to essential data and services, even in critical moments.
  • Operational Efficiency: Eliminating the need for on-prem server maintenance frees up resources, allowing fire departments to focus on their core mission.
  • Scalability: The cloud infrastructure is scalable, allowing fire departments to adapt and grow efficiently.
  • Mitigated Liability: Liability for data security shifts from the fire department to Alpine Software, reducing insurance premiums and potential costs associated with data breaches.

Security and Compliance with TLS

Alpine Software has chosen Microsoft Azure for hosting RedNMX’s cloud server due to Microsoft’s commitment to data security and compliance. Microsoft’s stringent requirements for Transport Layer Security (TLS) offer a vital safeguard for connections to its services. RedNMX’s direct SQL server connection with TLS to Azure SQL databases ensures fire department data remains shielded from a range of cyber threats.
By making the switch, fire departments can unlock unprecedented levels of efficiency, risk mitigation, and cost management. This move exemplifies RedNMX’s commitment to empowering fire departments with state-of-the-art security, enabling them to better serve their communities and adapt to future challenges.
