Typically, customers will leverage Immuware’s existing Azure Cloud hosting service relationship to host the application on their behalf. IP whitelisting is available for customers who would like to restrict access to the application so that only traffic originating from the customer’s internal network is allowed. For customers requiring even higher-standards of security, we can also configure an Azure Web Application Firewall (WAF), additional costs may apply.
However, for those Customers that would still like to host the application on-premise, please reach out to our sales team (email@example.com) to discuss available options
In order to utilize Immuware successfully, all you need is a web browser (Microsoft Edge, Chrome, etc.) and Wi-Fi or wired internet connection.

We will supply Immuware’s and Microsoft Azure’s most recent SOC 2 Type 2 Audit and Immuware’s penetration testing results upon request.
Our Microsoft Azure hosting model results in significant savings and benefits to the Immuware customer vs. an on-premise server model. The customer will not require the purchase or allocation of hardware server equipment, and will not need to install server software, configure servers or maintain the servers and upgrade servers on an ongoing basis. We handle all database backups. This represents significant cost savings to you as a customer of our Cloud hosted Immuware.
Another significant benefit of the hosted service is that it is scaled up for you automatically whenever your activity volume increases. Your internal IT staff are not involved in “scaling up”, adding memory or processors, purchasing more equipment, etc.

To request a different retention period, the Customer can provide written notification 30 days before termination.
