When it comes to sensitive data such as financial information, security is of the utmost importance. This is why Vivid Reports CPM and Flex have been designed with many ways to protect and control access to your organization’s information.
Within Vivid Reports CPM user setup you can define user permissions to control exactly what each user can see and do. For example, you can limit users to only see or budget certain GL accounts, business units, segments, and entities. You can also control functionally what someone can do, for example taking away a feature such as drill to accounts payable or accessing the details behind a record.
Defining and maintaining user security can be time consuming, especially once you start to have many users. This is why Vivid Reports allows you to control security through user roles, copy an existing user setup to a new user, and create an export of all security settings to ensure consistency and compliance. User profiles can easily be renamed and assigned to a new individual that is taking over an existing position.
Vivid Reports also has ways to lock down report definitions and keep them secure within a central database versus within a report or in Microsoft Excel®. The central database allows you to manage fewer items and to make global changes that will be immediately reflected across multiple reports the next time they are refreshed.
Report definitions can also be assigned to individual users for maintenance and monitored with an audit trail for changes. This enables Vivid Reports to meet SOX compliance requirements because you have full control and visibility over the flow of information originating within your core systems and ERP all the way through to your reports and analysis. Since we don’t use formulas in Excel®, you have complete control and peace of mind.
Vivid Reports can also piggyback onto Windows® and SQL Server® authentication methods such as Active Directory login or Windows Authentication.
