Video case study: PrivacyCentral uses Ruby on Azure

I’ve been busy making videos of a few of the ISVs that I’ve had the pleasure of working with. This is the first of those video case studies.

The video is available here. Enjoy!

===============================================================

Most consumers are unaware of the extent of publicly available, online exposures of their information – including phone numbers, current and past addresses, birth dates, home values, income level, religion, and relative names (including mother's maiden name) – all of which can easily be used for identity theft and other cybercrimes.

Like an antivirus for consumer privacy, PrivacyCentral exposes privacy threats to consumers, provides analysis and reports via a risk profile and risk score, and then empowers consumers with the ability to remove detected threats and monitor for future threats.

In this video, Privacy Central's CEO and founder, Zoiner Tejada, speaks with Microsoft Principal Architect Evangelist Brian Loesgen. Tejada discusses the benefits Privacy Central realized from building on the Azure platform, and how they run their Ruby crawlers on Azure. Tejada also goes on to share some lessons learned along the way during their development cycle, and offers up some tips for people new to the platform.
