Configuration and change management approach The Pexip service is deployed within Microsoft Azure data centres, with fully aligned & certified change management procedures, including security impact assessments & life cycle tracking. Devices on the network do periodic scanning for vulnerabilities and security threats.
All changes to the system must follow the change management procedures. Any emergency change must be reviewed with a Root Cause Analysis performed and prevention methods identified to ensure that emergency change is not required in the future.
Vulnerability management type Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach Pexip & Microsoft periodically scans for network, port, and application-level vulnerabilities. Vulnerability scans are conducted by a leading 3rd party SaaS provider, in addition to some special-purpose, in-house scanning tools. Furthermore, all of the 3rd party applications and operating system software is checked for security advisories and is patched periodically.

Routers, firewalls, load balancers, and proxy application servers are all configured to mitigate numerous types of DOS attacks. Pexip/Microsoft engage with 3rd party consultants to perform penetration testing. All of their findings are reviewed and appropriate actions are then taken to address and mitigate vulnerabilities found in the service.
Protective monitoring type Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach Pexip and Microsoft employs a wide range of security management practices to provide a secure and reliable service to customers. This includes network firewalls throughout the infrastructure to create security zones for different applications and services. Web traffic passes through industry-leading load balancers to protect against a suite of application attack vectors. Predefined processes & procedures from Pexip & Microsoft can be obtained on request.
Incident management type Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach If there is a suspected breach or known intrusion, the Security Incident and Reporting Process is triggered. Pexip and Microsoft have policies for Standard Incident Management to define methods for identifying, classifying, tracking, and responding to incidents that will impact business operations. Incident response programmes are tested/utilised on a procedure defined basis, customers are notified on the website prior to change, maintenance or as a result of outage/incident. More Information available upon request.
