Physical Security

All Indi systems are located within Microsoft Azure, which provides robust physical, network, application, and operational security controls.

 

Azure's datacentres are physically secured with protections like on-premises security officers, video surveillance, intrusion detection systems. Azure facilities also have environmental protections against temperature, humidity, and electrical issues.

 

Network Security and Monitoring

Indi uses Azure Defender for the cloud. This provides DDoS protection, network segmentation controls, end-to-end encryption, VLAN isolation, and extensive monitoring and logging. Firewalls, virtual networks, access control policies, and forced tunnelling provide further robust defence-in-depth capabilities. 

 

Encryption

All Indi data is fully encrypted at rest and in transit. This includes encryption for Azure Disk Storage, SQL databases, backup data, and virtual machine disks.

Encryption protects all Indi user data from unauthorized access.

 

Identity and Access Management

Indi uses Microsoft Entra ID (previously known as Azure Active Directory). Microsoft Entra ID provides advanced access policies allow granular control over account access, including delegation of user identity authentication to providers such as Microsoft, Google and Facebook.
