Data Access Control

SpeedBase has two layers of data access management.

Specify Default Access Permissions For All Information Objects

On the first layer, users are grouped into several security roles (i.e. user groups) and every role has its own set of permissions where you may easily control read/write permissions on database level.

For each group of users which work in the same team/department, a different security role (such as 'support team', 'trainee' etc.) is created, so they share the same permissions when accessing various information in your database. So simply assigning an existing security role to a new user is sufficient to apply previously defined access rights to him/her.

See User Groups for more info.

Create Access Right Exceptions For Catalogs / Fields / Users

In case you need a more detailed access control, you may define further access right exceptions on the second layer, which overwrite the default permissions inherited from the first layer.

See Advanced Access Rights Manager for more info.

SpeedBase has the following security control features:

Data Security

For default installation, SpeedBase uses its integrated (local) database. Your database is NOT hosted on a public server so it is never accessible from the internet and all your data is saved on your own local computer/network. That means, your database is as safe as any other file on your computer against any malicious internet user.

For multiuser (Teamwork) licenses:
Beware that, access control management in SpeedBase is designed mostly for preventing accidental data loss, to keep the desired part of the information away from curious people around and from your own users who simply do not need it. This feature should not be considered as a high level of protection to conceal sensitive information from the users to whom you have given access to the location of your database.
If you want to save sensitive information like passwords, you are recommended to use encryption feature.
