Availability and resilience

Guaranteed availability
Service Availability Control (99.95% montly - what AWS claim to)
• Redundant systems and networks are deployed across servicing components.
• Load balancing ensures service availability in case of component failure.
• DRP: In case of data center failure, automatic failover is deployed to an alternate data center. (Note: Selecting a specific data center (for example, in EU) will cause the loss of data center failover functionality.)
• The customer account: policy, users, logs and configurations are stored in redundant locations.
• Check Point enforces internal policies to control the retention of backup data. All data is backed up at each data center, on a rotating schedule of incremental and full backups.
Approach to resilience
We will have resilient deployments of our service in clusters in AWS ensuring that service uptime is as high as possible

If they do not use ID-guard they log into the regular SaaS application as normal with no difference, if they are using ID-Guard however they will require the integration (performed by the IT admin) to have been completed before then and then their experience is the same as the integration results in single sign on experience.
