Businesses on the verge of purchasing Microsoft Dynamics may have an concerns about the state of cloud computing in general, and how it may affect data integrity with implementation of the Dynamics suite in particular.
After all, system security is one of the main reasons decision makers, from CIO to business owners, push back on handing over of what might be considered by some as the ‘keys’ to the business.
In short, moving files and documents, whether proprietary or private profiles of customers and clients, outside the realm of the company’s servers can cause concerns regarding the element of security.
It’s no surprise that Microsoft with its success of its cloud platform Azure, for example, ranks just as high as Google and Amazon with its security assurances. In fact, Gartner points to the growing use of the cloud, and how it continues “picking up traction” in today’s technology offerings (Microsoft Dynamics ERP software moved to the cloud in 2013).
Microsoft makes it quite clear that their “security model” for both its Dynamics CRM on-premise installs, as well Dynamics CRM Online component, is rock-solid secure.
How so? If you are familiar with the security aspects found within the application framework of Microsoft SharePoint, then you already know that the content and document management is permission-based: IT allows access to individuals, team members—and some cases, vendors—by specific authorization.
Dynamics’ is not a come-one-come-all portal. At its core, it was developed with the utmost concern about the enterprise push-back on areas affecting “data integrity and privacy.”
Only users with assigned privileges can navigate specific levels to carry-out their daily tasks. What’s more, the inner-workings of Dynamic’s online suite makes certain that users are identified by their “role,” thereby setting up restrictions encompassing those roles.
But in no way is the use of Dynamics CRM Online inhibit that all-important collaborative effort. In fact, the suite fully supports “data sharing,” allowing teams, for example, to access files and documents they may not “own” as necessary for the work they must perform.
Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online—and on-premise—is built, then, around three basic security components: role-based, record-based and field-level security; the latter restricts those critical areas of the business or organization to pre-authorized users and/or teams.
