Keep your information safe with advanced security.
Protect confidential information with full security on everything, from accounts and projects to reports and queries. System administrators can grant or deny user rights to specific information, so it does not appear on an unauthorized user’s search screen or in any reports that user creates. Easily and securely share performance information with non-financial, view-only users.
With advanced security, you can:
- Configure processes that map directly to your organizational control model, making it easy to enforce the capture of important data and prevent entry errors such as invalid account combinations
- Create unique business rules to prevent unwanted activities, such as the reopening of closed fiscal years or creation of invalid account combinations
- Protect confidential data with the ability to give users access to view only the information necessary
