3 Rethink your approach to storage
3/31/2017 Windows Azure Storage Like a GIANT hard drive—only better Highly durable and scalable. Multiple copies of your data. It’s important to keep in mind the benefits of the Azure storage connected to that StorSimple device. Azure storage has more than 4 trillion objects, processes an average of 270,000 requests per second, and reaches peaks of 880k requests per second! In fact, the Windows Azure Storage system is the underpinning to everything in Azure that requires storage. It is a solid and robust data platform for the many services that make use of it—like Blobs for unstructured data or NoSQL datastore for structured non-relational data. So you can imagine that Windows Azure Storage is built to be durable and scalable. Every file or object that you put in Azure is replicated three times within a reason. As a result, you’ll get high availability even if a rack or storage server is down. In addition, Azure Storage includes a lot of technology that ensures data stays protected. For instance, data is constantly scanned against “bit rot” and provides strong consistency, which is vital for enterprise customers who want to move their line of business applications to the cloud. These all contribute to the 99.9 percent financially-backed SLA. Windows Azure Storage also provides storage for hybrid apps and supports REST APIs, so you can get a flexible solution that meets your exact business needs. © 2012 Microsoft Corporation.

4 Defend against regional disasters
Build 2012 3/31/2017 Geo-replication Windows Azure Storage Defend against regional disasters So you can be sure that every piece of data that you store in the Azure Blob is available as well as protected against regional disasters (we call this geo-replication). Data is asynchronously copied to another datacenter that’s at least 400 miles away. Geo replication is a unique feature, that differentiates us. Hearing about cloud services and giant datacenters, it’s easy to become inured to the numbers. But think for a moment how much complexity and cost you’d introduce to your environment if you tried to implement a solution involving 6 copies of your data, and two datacenters 400 miles apart!

5 Security Only you have your key.
Windows Azure Backup 3/31/2017 Security Only you have your key. Data cannot be recovered without your key. Microsoft does not have your key. … and remains encrypted while stored. The first stage in the transfer process is the encryption of your data on premise using your key. Your data stays encrypted with your key while in transit over the wire to Windows Azure storage. Your data stays encrypted while in Windows Azure storage. It is never decrypted while it resides in Windows Azure storage. Your data can only be decrypted once it’s restored on your premises. Only you have the decryption key to do this. To this end, it’s very important to protect this key. Make sure you back up your key, keep it safe, and store a copy offsite. Your data cannot be decrypted without it. In the event of key loss, Microsoft cannot help you as Microsoft does not keep a copy of your key and has no access to it. The key is never passed to Windows Azure during any Windows Azure backup. …encrypted on the network… Data is encrypted on-premises… © 2013 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

29 Security

30 Industry-leading Security for Cloud Storage
Multiple layers of obfuscation through the system Original data is broken to storage blocks Blocks are fingerprinted + deduplicated with data from other volumes Obfuscated blocks are stored in compressed form Encrypt everything before sending to Azure AES-256 CBC encryption is applied before transmission using customer key Additional SSL encryption of all data + meta-data operations with Azure Encryption keys stay only with customer Microsoft/StorSimple doesn’t have access to customer encryption keys Keys can be imported from customer’s secure key mgmt system or generated from pass phrases Encrypted / compressed / obfuscated blocks stored in Azure Data is secure even if account gets compromised Application Servers Local Data Broken into storage blocks, then: Obfuscated Deduplicated Compressed Blocks encrypted with customer key SSL communication: Authentication Metadata Data transfer Data in cloud Deduplicated Compressed Encrypted with customer key

31 Cloud Storage Access Security
Scenario 1: Access key got compromised Scenario 2: Storage admin employee leaves company Risk mitigation and best practices Compartmentalize information Azure subscription can have multiple storage accounts Recommended to use different storage accounts to compartmentalize info – e.g. per dept, project, role, etc. Periodical key rotation Each account has two 256-bit access keys  allows easy key rotation without service disruption Only requests with valid access keys are allowed to access stored blocks Data fragments accessed are still obfuscated and encrypted Frequent key rotation (e.g. every 90 days) is recommended Ad-hoc/emergency key rotation if a key is compromised StorSimple allows use of up to 64 storage accounts per system

32 Cloud Storage Data-at-Rest Security
Scenario 3: Cloud Provider decommissions server hardware or loses physical hard drives in maintenance process. Risk mitigation and best practices Data at-rest is obfuscated Data is broken to individual small blocks and fingerprinted to comprise a global de-duplication dictionary – no volume, file system or file context ~16 Million obfuscated blocks per 1TB of Azure storage, spread across multiple hard drives Data at-rest is encrypted StorSimple systems encrypt data stored in cloud with a customer-provided encryption key. Federal standard AES-256 encryption used. Up to 64 different encryption keys can be used in one appliance for data-at-rest isolation to complement access compartmentalization practice. Encryption key is derived from Customer Passphrase or Key generated by Key Management System. Only entered input is accessible in appliance UI. Microsoft or 3rd parties cannot read data when physical drives are lost, replaced, or repaired in Azure DC
