Data is one of your most strategic assets. Keeping it secure is our priority one. Only your authorized users will be able to interact with your data and dashboards. Single sign-on support via SAML2.0 allows embedding and Active Directory synchronization through corporate identity providers. Tableau Online is also SSAE verified in a SOC 2 Type I report. It’s our servers, but it’s your data. Read more about Tableau Online security here.

Security—Our Priority One

We know data is critical to you and your business, so our highest priority is on maintaining security and privacy of your data. That means operational, user, data, application and transmission security. It’s our servers, but it’s your data.

Let's say that again: It’s your data. And only your data. Only your authorized users will have access to your data and dashboards stored in Tableau Online..

About Security in the Cloud

There are many angles to security, and we’ve got all of them covered. Read this whitepaper to see all the details on:

  • How we store your data
  • How data is transmitted from server to browser or mobile device
  • Who in Tableau can view it (a very, very select few administrators)
  • How we do backups
  • And much more

“We wanted to liberate the data and get it out to our users. And the way that we did that was through Tableau Online. I'm not having to worry about firewalls and configuring things correctly. It's there in the cloud, secure for my key executives to access anytime—even on a JetSuite aircraft at 40,000 feet.”

“In a matter of a day, Tableau Online enabled us to create the reports and then push them out across the organization and have different individuals in the organization connect to those reports online from any point in the world.
