Enterprise API

Features

SHORT-LIVED TOKENS

OAuth uses tokens instead of relying on a single password as the master key for every app that accesses an API. An OAuth token gives one app access to one API on behalf of one user for a limited time.

PERMISSIONS – USER ROLES AND ACCESS

In VMS and API, permissions can be easily upgraded as well – if the user tries to do something in an app and they are not authorised to, the business can give the user the option to add that permission.

MULTI-FACTOR AUTHENTICATION

We mandate multi-factor authentication (MFA) on VMS. MFA is enforced for all tasks that require administrative or elevated privileges. These actions will help mitigate the impact of stolen credentials across the organisation.

DECENTRALISING IDENTITY FROM APPLICATIONS

Security is consistent with the open platform potential for low-friction innovation.

SUPPORTS DELEGATED AUTHENTICATION

With our Enterprise API offering, it is possible to integrate with your existing Active Directory (AD) servers for streamlined user management.

INFORMATION PROTECTION

Data is carefully filtered based on security roles ensuring that end-users and API users only see what they are authorised to see.

SUB QUERIES

Subqueries provide a powerful way to combine data from two tables into a single result. As the name implies, subqueries contain one or more queries, one inside the other.
