Pain Point: Security is a top priority for my company, so how can we ensure our data remains secure?
Solution: Logi’s embedded analytics solution provides adaptive, iron-clad security for your data.

Software powers everything we do in our personal and professional lives. Ensuring that data collected by applications is stored and analyzed securely can be a challenge. Any software your company decides to deploy should ideally integrate well with whatever current security protocols you’re already following.

Let’s discuss a couple of key components that help keep your data secure with Logi. Here are some things to keep in mind:

Data Governance

Data governance is about managing and gaining better control over your data assets. It can be described as a control that ensures that data entry by a business user or an automated process meets business standards, but it also expands this ethos to the roles and tools involved in data management. Data governance manages a variety of things including availability, usability, accuracy, integrity, consistency, completeness, and security of data usage.

In addition to granular control over a user’s self-service and dashboard interactivity, you’ll want to have precise control over what data a user can access to ensure a secure discovery experience. One data governance best practice is data source access control. By connecting directly to data sources and managing your data security in a single place you can remove redundancies in your security protocols. You’ll also want an analytics platform that can protect your data at the row-level and column-level to prevent unauthorized access and data corruption.

Proper data governance will increase decision-making consistency while also decreasing risk of regulatory scrutiny.

Multi-Tenant Security & Single Sign-on Authentication

Your company likely wants to deliver value to a number of customers, or tenants. Multi-tenancy allows multiple customers to host a single application, supporting each individual’s ability to see their own unique information.

The data delivered to your users must be firewalled, so it remains private for that individual user alone. It’d be a significant security risk if users were able to access and view one another’s information. Logi’s suite of products is built already to support multi-tenancy, so you’ll have no added stress when configuring your application.

What allows for the multi-tenancy support is single sign-on (SSO), which allows users to log into a main app once, with their security credentials passed on to the embedding platform. In addition, trusted access also provides user access tokens with defined authorization rules accounting for user privileges, object permissions, security filters, and any specific user attributes used in interpolation.

Take your time, do your research, and do not rush into any security decisions that may impact business productivity. This should be done with clear DevOps standards in place, so additional time and money aren’t wasted dealing with any SSO problems that occur.

Security must remain a constant priority for companies, so decision makers are aware of ongoing threat vectors and possible business disruptions. Many application teams have their data structures defined differently, based on what each group needs to provide. However, support for customization is achievable with proper security to make sure your users are secure in their work environments.
