Core’s Microsoft Azure-based IaaS offering provides your company with leading edge virtual desktops and servers – fully managed and supported 24/7. This hosted environment is custom configured to deliver the exact performance characteristics your business requires, from handling relatively small workloads to accommodating huge data warehousing needs.

To meet stringent compliance requirements, and to ensure your peace of mind, Azure is fully compliant with ISO27001, as well as many other industry-specific security accreditation standards. All of Core’s IaaS servers provide you with an additional layer of protection, thanks to a full Intrusion Detection and Prevention (IDS/IPS) package, running on every server instance.

For our local and central government clients, Azure is G-Cloud certified to “Official” level. Full penetration tests take place prior to all live deployments, and independent penetration tests organised by clients can also be arranged and accommodated.

Servers are located in Microsoft’s Azure datacentres in Dublin and Amsterdam, and all Core’s UK-based support staff are EU / Commonwealth nationals with BPSS vetting.
