How can businesses take advantage of Business Central Security?

When it comes to security, IT systems have often been the main causes for concern in a business. Added to which, IT teams that make use of on-premise software are often faced with a whole host of different challenges regularly.  

You have better control over which objects or tables users can access within each database by making use of Business Central’s game-changing security system. As well as this, you can define a user’s access to these objects and tables in the sense of whether they can read, change or input data. 

In addition to this, you can choose which records are stored in the tables and which users can access them. Put simply, this means that the permissions can be assigned at both table and record levels. 

What are the different levels of security in Business Central? 

You will find that Business Central has four different levels of security which consist of the following: 

  • Database 
  • Company 
  • Object 
  • Record 

The best thing about the security system is the fact that it stores data about which user has access to which database. 

Moreover, the dataset includes user roles given in addition to the rights they have handed out to other users in the business. This is a significant benefit for both your workforce and your business. Taking this one step further, using Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365) you can liaise with your colleagues – share with anyone, edit it at the same time, review changes and complete tasks quicker. 

Database Security 

Following the successful implementation of Business Central, the first security layer you have is regarding your database. Your credentials are established after you have launched Business Central and are logging into the database itself. 

Company Security 

After using the database, you can pick which business you wish to collaborate with. 

Object Security 

You will notice that once you build a business in Dynamics 365 Business Central, the security system reviews your capacity to access information. As well as this, the set of permissions on Business Central objects that are made up for a permission set are known as object-level security. Furthermore, permission sets are important as they help to manage user access and the tasks that users complete on the database objects. 

Record Safety 

You will find that record-level security enables you to limit a user’s access to data contained within a table. Within Business Central, you are able to implement record-level security by adding security filters onto table data. This security filter will help bring together records into a table that a user can access.  

In Summary 

If this isn’t obvious already, the number of people working remotely has increased since the Covid-19 pandemic. Thus, meaning that cloud-based solutions will face growing numbers of security threats going forwards. Having a robust solution such as Business Central in place will help you to not only safeguard your business but also help to improve performance.
