Introduction to data encryption in 4D

Automatically translated from English

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.

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!

Backup and Security

Automatically translated from English

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.

Higher security ranking for 4D web sites

Automatically translated from English

HTTPS is a well-known HTTP protocol, covered with a layer of SSL/TLS encryption goodness. This protocol is intended to provide confidentiality and integrity by encrypting communications between your server and your end users, rendering your data secure from prying eyes.

4D v16 R6 takes it a step further: 4D Web server now supports Perfect Forward Secrecy (PFS). This provides you with the highest security level for your communications – by default! Beyond the protection it provides, the support of PFS also increases the SSL audit test results of an out-of-the-box 4D server, which is great for our customers. Especially those working with sensitive information.
