If your business or enterprise has made the exciting choice of transitioning to business intelligence software, you’re on the road to more easily managed, well-formatted data and analytics.
Now is the time to take that next step and think about how you would like to manage the security of your BI Solution, both internally (between functions and teams, allowing you a more robust approach to managing internal risks) and the inherent security functions of your chosen BI software for protection of your valuable data from external threats.
The aim of a risk management framework is to provide the structure necessary to integrate data security and risk management processes into the lifecycle of your system. So, when deciding on a BI solution, it’s important to understand the security systems in place to ensure that your business is properly protected.
App-level security allows you to create a dynamic framework for how users can interact with and access data. This type of security allows you to manage your BI solution via individual attribute-based access. This can be set at different levels for individual users, or applied across larger groups in order to facilitate maximum access. App-level security also allows you to change the level of access for individual users or groups as their needs change, meaning that your system is able to evolve and adapt to changes within your business and prevent business data from being accessed by those who do not require it.
These measures handle access to certificates, storage, memory, and CPU resources, giving you the ability to create customisable rules based on each user’s needs and requirements. This security layer can help you to achieve a consistent user-experience that ensures required resources are only being viewed and utilised by authorised users.
Network-level security can consist of multiple factors, the most common being protocols (such as the use of digital ‘certificates’) and encryption. These security features are built into the Qlik® Sense platform, ensuring that these services are directly targeting your business’ specific requirements.
Considering the amount of vital internal data that is managed by your business intelligence software on a daily basis, it’s important to ensure that it is adequately protected from any circumstances that may arise. Endeavour Solutions are proud to ensure your data integrity by choosing solutions which include powerful security features.
