Visual Guard integrates with Active Directory.
Users can log in with their Windows account. In addition to avoiding redundant user account management, users will be able to log into the application without entering login information.
The Windows account is automatically recognized
Permissions are applied automatically
Works for desktop and web applications
Increase sensitive transaction security with an additional authentication factor
Authenticate users with their their account + a mobile device
Integrate your PB applications with an OAuth authentication system.
Comply with corporate standards.
Unify authentication methods.
Easily create fine-grained permissions at resource level, regardless of the Client's technology
The Web API created by PowerServer can be extended by Web services on the back-end.
The REST API can then be exposed to PB clients but also to other applications developed in different technologies: PB, Angular, React...
Considering the number of attacks targeting the sensitive data, or the application's features, application security auditing has become a necessity.
An increasing number of legislations engage the responsibility of organizations regarding data protection.
The Visual Guard Web Console allows you to monitor and track sensitive operations as well as review application security (permissions structure).
Follow important activities: access to confidential data, critical transactions, security changes.
Detect suspicious events - e.g., critical operations at unusual times.
Review operations performed by business or privileged users.
Generate reports about the access control configuration (users, groups, access rights, etc.).
Easily create workflows that will trigger alerts based on the events you choose
Immediately receive an email alert
The administration console allows you to configure and supervise all the security of the application:
The identity server is an essential component of application security.
It allows to verify the user's identity and to generate a token containing information about him (Claim).
Stored on the client, it will be used each time the user accesses a resource (data, Web Services...) via the Web API.
PowerServer includes an identity server that essentially authenticates the user.
The Visual Guard Identity Server goes further.
It provides advanced features such as :
Fine-grained authorizations on the server side,
Because of its PowerServer-specific design, Visual Guard does not require any changes to the application code.
It only takes a few lines of code to connect it to your system.
Plug & Play
Visual Guard is very simple to implement and can be implemented in one hour:
Only a few lines of code are needed to call the Visual Guard runtime
All the other elements that make it up can be configured using wizards.
