4D solutions have always been safe and stable. This is because 4D invests heavily in developing and updating security features. 4D continues this focus in 4D v18 R4 with a new feature to further enhance its security toolkit. A new class providing a set of methods to perform common cryptographic operations is now available: CryptoKey class.
Monitoring access to your mobile app is a very important capability that deserves further consideration. Email validation is one of the simplest and most secure ways to determine the authenticity and legitimacy of the person trying to log into your app. 4D for iOS enables you to easily handle this validation process by verifying that an email comes from whom it claims to be sent from, and by allowing you to block harmful uses of the email.
In a previous post, we discussed how to get started with data file encryption. Now we’re going to discuss an additional way to work with encrypted data files: New 4D commands. These commands are designed to support most encryption requirements and allow you to deliver an encrypted solution to your customers.
In a previous blog post, we announced new data encryption tools for your 4D databases. Now it’s time to get our hands dirty and learn more about these tools which were designed to be as automatic as possible.
DATA is everywhere. As our lives increasingly move online, the importance of data security also increases. Customer data must be vigilantly guarded against potential threats and breaches. In many cases, using a disk encryption tool (such as Microsoft’s Bitlocker or Apple’s FileVault) provides a sufficient level of protection, but what if your customer or your CSO (Chief Security Officer) requires encryption at the database level – on a per table basis?
During 4D Summit 2018, you asked for a solution to encrypt your data and we’ve delivered. We’re excited to present new data encryption tools for your 4D databases.
Security and Data Protection is an incredibly important topic and yet it’s often overlooked until something goes wrong!
4D is secure, straight out of the box, thanks to the integration of the latest technologies and practices such as:
In this dedicated GDPR guide of best practices, 4D helps you to build your GDPR compliance and get you started with your General Data Protection Regulation journey.
In this blog post, we’ll focus on a specific key step of this journey: discovery and how 4D can help you create an overview of existing personal data, via a built-in functionality. We’ll even provide you a code example!
Taking effect on May 25, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) imposes new privacy restrictions governing the collection and use of personal data of European Union (EU) citizens.
And as a first step to help you get more insight into the GDPR law, we’re pleased to announce the first part of a GDPR dedicated guide: General Data Protection Regulation and 4D.
After introducing Perfect Forward Secrecy, the security level of 4D Web server has been increased again with the support of HTTP Strict transport Security (HSTS). Henceforth, 4D Web server is compliant with the very latest security protocols. Simply upgrade to 4D v17 and enable HSTS to get the A+ ranking (the highest level) from SSL Labs for your web sites!
There’s a saying about not sweating the small stuff, but when it comes to security, it’s often the little things that have the biggest impact.
On the “Backup” page of Database Settings, you’ll notice an option for an automatic restore of the last backup if your database is damaged. To provide you with the best level of protection for your data, this option is now checked by default for new databases, right out of the box.
