Administrative policies

IP filtering and sign-in limitations

Realm administrators are able to limit access within specific IP address ranges. With IP filtering, you can require users be in specific locations within the IP address range or use VPN credentials to access your Quickbase apps. For additional security and control, you can determine how and when your users access the Quickbase applications in your realm, such as timeout limits, inactivity limited, sign-in prevents after failed password attempts and determine ability to sign-in across sessions.

Password policies

Carry over your organization’s unique password strength requirements to Quickbase accounts and applications to ensure passwords adhere to the same rigorous standards as other software in your ecosystem. If you have enabled SSO, users will sign in to Quickbase using your organization’s network login.

Data classification

As a key part of any organizations data governance strategy, Quickbase allows customers to define data labels in applications in order to categorize their applications based on the type of data they contain. Specifically, it is a best practice to define and label applications containing sensitive information. Admins can align with larger data classification strategies at their organization and provide more visibility into the data stored on the Quickbase platform to end users. Additionally, data labels come with associated descriptions to inform end users how the data within should, or should not be, handled.

Although data classification of apps is supported within the platform, it can be extended to external IT data classification and DLP systems. While there is no native support for identifying specific sensitive information such as PII, many customers employ practices like building workflow checks into key apps with Pipelines and our API.
