Qlik Sense provides integrity through operating system controls like the file system to protect data at rest, encrypt sensitive information, and prevent data write back to the source system.

Qlik Sense supports integrity in the following ways:

  • Stored data is protected using the operating system controls (for example, the file system).
  • Sensitive information (for example, passwords and connection strings) that is used to access external data sources is stored with AES-256 encryption.

  • Qlik Sense does not support write back to the source system (that is, the Qlik Sense clients cannot edit the data sources).
