AI Data Privacy and Security with Copilot4DevOps Plus

Copilot4DevOps Plus can keep your data secure with OpenAI API Data Security and Azure OpenAI Data Privacy and Security measures.

AI is becoming a vital competitive factor for companies. By 2023, 40% of DevOps teams had integrated artificial intelligence in their IT operations. The benefits are now clear. According to McKinsey, work automation could add up to to productivity growth.

For DevOps teams, AI tools have grown exponentially and will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. They can assist teams in minimizing coding errors, streamlining development, monitoring applications, and more. Using AI tools, DevOps teams can eliminate mundane and repetitive tasks and achieve efficiency.

 However, the importance of enterprise AI security and privacy cannot be overstated. This is precisely why a tool like Copilot4DevOps Plus- an AI work item management tool for Microsoft Azure DevOps, combines groundbreaking features with cutting-edge privacy and security features. Here’s how:

1. Copilot4DevOps Plus: Features and AI Security

Use Cases and Gherkins Convert raw requirements data into use cases, user stories, and Gherkin format.
Summarize Summarize long requirements into bite-size form (including bullet points).
Elaborate Expand existing work items with more detail.
Paraphrase Rephrase requirements in a different way or using different terminology.
Dynamic Prompts Engage with your projects more interactively by using tailored prompts to perform actions using one or two queries. Allows users to define custom prompts that include work item details from queries to perform various tasks.
Pseudocode Generation Automatically generate pseudocode in multiple programming languages, aiding developers and analysts to conceptualize solutions faster.
Test Script Creation Effortlessly create test scripts in various languages, significantly reducing test preparation time.
Token Quota Status Monitor monthly token consumption.
Custom Instructions Refine your interactions within Copilot4DevOps Plus by picking the GPT model, response type, and modifying instructions.
Translate Translate work items and requirements into more than 40 languages.

Copilot4DevOps Plus brings these powerful features to Azure DevOps and turns it into a single source of truth for teams within a familiar Microsoft interface. Further, it inherits Microsoft and OpenAI’s advanced privacy and security protocols. Here’s how that benefits you.

2. OpenAI API Data Security and Privacy

Copilot4DevOps Plus strictly adheres to the privacy policies of OpenAI. OpenAI has a stringent privacy policy that prioritizes user data privacy. It does not use API data, inputs, or outputs to improve its models. Furthermore, any deleted conversations are removed from OpenAI systems within 30 days, unless there is a legal requirement for retention.

This policy ensures that users have control over their data and can trust that it is being handled responsibly.

Because of AI’s privacy sensitive nature, Copilot4DevOps Plus inherits OpenAI’s security policies shown in the OpenAI enterprise privacy blog. These may be summarized as follows:

Enterprise Privacy at OpenAI:

  • Ownership: You own your inputs and outputs. OpenAI doesn’t use your business data for training.
  • Control: You decide who has access. Custom models are exclusively yours.
  • Security: OpenAI is audited for SOC 2 compliance (API). It also provides enterprise-level authentication through SAML SSO.
  • Encryption: Data encryption at rest (AES-256) and in transit (TLS 1.2+).


  • Fine-Tuning Your Model: Your company’s internal model is private.
  • GDPR and Privacy Laws: We can support compliance with Data Processing Addendum.

API Platform:

  • Copilot4DevOps Plus derives from OpenAI’s API platform, which offers access to models and applications, including fine-tuning for use cases.
  • Data Retention and Monitoring: Through the OpenAI API, Copilot4DevOps Plus offers secure retention of API data, with a zero data retention option available.

When using Copilot4DevOps Plus, you can choose between GPT 3.5 Turbo and GPT 4o in your custom instructions tab. If you choose GPT 4, you will use OpenAI Service policies described here.

Copilot4DevOps Plus is built by Modern Requirements – known as the “go-to” requirements management partner for Microsoft’s Azure DevOps. It is also recognized as one of Microsoft’s AI Transformation partners that “have powered their customers’ transformations and derived value from using generative AI.”

As it is natively built into Azure DevOps, Copilot4DevOps Plus also inherits use of the Azure OpenAI Service. Its advanced security measures ensure that your data is always protected, whether at rest or in transit.

These include automated threat detection, DDoS protection, and regular security audits. These features, combined with Azure’s compliance offerings, make it a reliable choice for enterprises concerned about data privacy.

OpenAI Service processes user data for providing the service and monitoring violations. User data, including prompts, completions, embeddings, and training data:

  • Is not shared with others
  • Is not used to enhance OpenAI or Microsoft models
  • Is not employed for improving products or services

Fine-tuned models created with user data are exclusive for the user’s database and not used by OpenAI, Microsoft, Copilot4DevOps Plus, or Modern Requirements. The Azure Open AI Service operates solely within the Azure environment.

When using Copilot4DevOps Plus, you can choose between GPT 3.5 Turbo and GPT 4 in your custom instructions tab. If you choose GPT 3.5 Turbo, you will use Azure OpenAI Service policies described in this Microsoft blog.

4. Future Proof AI Security

Security is a key priority for Copilot4DevOps Plus. It was developed with the OpenAI API and Azure AI Service and therefore inherits the strict security protocols of both platforms. This offers access to models and applications, including fine-tuning for use cases.

None of the user prompts and completions are used for improving AI models, keeping companies’ data safe, confidential, and secure. It ensures that while businesses can access the power of AI, they can also rest assured that their data is safe and secure. By harnessing the strengths of Microsoft Services and tools, Copilot4DevOps Plus sets a new standard for the future of DevOps automation.
