Data security page

Data security at IOMETE is maintained through access control using a user interface for consistent administration. Security admins set policies for databases, tables, and columns, managing permissions for groups or users. IOMETE offers the following types of data security.

  • Access Policy policy comprises rules and permissions that specify who can access specific resources and the actions they can take after gaining access.
  • Data masking is a method to hide sensitive information by changing it into fake data while keeping its appearance intact. It safeguards private details during testing or sharing.
  • Row-level filtering limits who can see certain rows in a database.
