Your data is important to you and the success of your business. Unfortunately, your data may also be important to someone else. You want to make sure that it is secure from unauthorized access. Therefore, it is prudent and reasonable for you to ask, “How does SQL Data Sync help me keep my data secure?”
SQL Data Sync service credentials for the system databases in SQL Database.
SQL Data Sync service credentials for the system storage in Windows Azure.
User credentials for the user's SQL Database.
The configuration file for the Data Sync Client Agent.
The connections between the service and the system database in SQL Database.
The connections between the service and the system storage in Windows Azure.
The connections between all components in the cloud-based service.
The connection between the Client Agent and the cloud-based service. And
The connection between the Windows Azure Management Portal and the cloud-based service.
The Client agent authenticates local users with Windows user security. The Client agent requires the user to be a member of a specific security group.
The cloud-based SQL Data Sync service authenticates the Client Agent using a unique token or "agent Key." The user generates the agent key in the Windows Azure Platform Management Portal and then installs the agent key in the Client Agent. The user can regenerate and reinstall and agent key at any time.
