Security FAQ’s

The app uses Azure APIs to collect usage and cost information for your Azure resources to provide recommendations on cost savings, security and monitoring improvements. VIAcode has developed a proprietary AI tool that analyzes Azure resource tiers, utilization, security and monitoring coverage. We collect and analyze this data: resource, resource group and subscription names and tags but we do not store them.

Your data is secure when using this VIAcode app.

Here are the details of the information that is stored, where it is stored and how it is stored.

The data is separated into three categories:

  1. User data
  2. User security-critical data (access tokens, encryption keys)
  3. Application state data

User data:

This includes data recovered from the Azure account including: subscriptions, resources, prices, usage and recommendations. All of this data has three layers of encryption:

  • Encryption at-rest (AES 256)
  • Encryption in transit (TLS 1.2)
  • Application-level encryption (AES 256) using a per-user key stored in Key Vault

User security-critical data

This includes encryption keys and access tokens that are stored in Azure Key Vault. The application has a registered identity and all access to these tokens are fully logged and audited. This is the most secure layer.

Application state data:

State data is used to track the settings and options associated with your user account. There are two layers of encryption for data in this category:

  • Encryption at-rest (AES 256)
  • Encryption in transit (TLS 1.2)
