Tableau & Mobile Security

Regardless of the application or device, security is integral to every decision your company makes. That’s why we’ve designed a mobile solution with security in mind from the start. We’ve approached this challenge from a holistic perspective, carefully considering the security impact in each of the following areas:

Device Security
How Mobile Devices Connect to Tableau
Data Transmission
User Authentication and Authorization
Data Encryption at Rest
App-Development Best Practices
We’ve Got You Covered

Device security is the foundation of your organization’s success with mobile apps. With company-issued phones and tablets, you can more easily ensure that devices meet your security standards. But in bring-your-own-device (BYOD) scenarios, things become more challenging.

How do you protect company data on employees’ devices? Start by giving them guidelines to secure the whole device with a strong password. Go further with mobile-device management (MDM) utilities like MobileIron or VMware AirWatch. These not only let you precisely control how mobile apps are deployed, but also let you define enterprise-wide rules for security policies, device encryption, and more.

To help you quickly get up and running with MDM tools, Tableau provides detailed guides like Deploy Tableau Mobile with AirWatch. We’ll soon offer guides for other popular vendors. Return to this whitepaper online to see the latest content.
