Understanding Security Of Entities Of Bizfirst Apps
Security provides a form of protection where a separation is created between the assets and the threat. Secure First is an innovative logical data partitioning and protection approach, opening up numerous avenues of advanced data security. Secure First manages users and groups of all Biz First Apps through a centralized system. The users and groups can be custom assigned to Resources or Groups of Resources such as functions, data or documents.
There are mainly two types of security models. They are inherit owner and Custom. The first model allows the Entity to inherit security of the owner App. If you select Custom security model, you can set different type of access rights for different users. This helps you to make your App more secure and can give access to different user groups with different privileges. Secure First helps to make even the basic components of your App secured.
For example, Let us take Book Management App. There are two users. You need to give access to read an entity Book Details for user1. But user2 has given the rights to read as well as insert Book Details. So that when the user1 open the App, he can view the details of selected book but cannot add a new book to the app. But for user2, he can view the details of previously saved entity as well as he can add details of new books without any problem.
Every user component you see on BizFirst applications can be individually secured. Process, Rule, Service and Data components can be secured in this way. App and App Modules can also be secured. All Biz First Apps are protected by an additional layer of security provided by Secure First.
