HI,

 

New to powerapps! So I thought I would just ask the community 🙂

Re: Read encrypted columns

Thank you for the response!

 

The task at hand is that I want to know how to make the underlying table I read from secure. I guess encrypted secure connections to the source is by default?

 

How do you implement a best practice security in powerapps?

 

If this should be in "feautures request" I will move it(unless an admin does it for me)

 

🙂 Thank you Yam

Re: Read encrypted columns

Hi YKFG,

 

I assume that encrypted azure SQL columns might be not supported currently.


I haven’t seen a similar idea at PowerApps Ideas Forum, please consider to submit a new feature request at here. I will also collect and report this feature from my side.

Re: Read encrypted columns

Microsoft is claiming PowerApps follow a robust set of security technologies and practices.

 

Please find the link below in which they had explained this in detail:

 

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/TrustCenter/CloudServices/business-application-platform/security

 

They have stated that

 

“Your data is securely protected because the business application platform is built on Microsoft Azure. This means that they benefit from the Azure platform’s powerful security technologies. Encryption of data, at rest and in transit, also preserves confidentiality. In addition, business application platform services use separate front-end and back-end clusters, the Gateway role, and secure data storage architecture. This helps protect your information and allows your organization’s data to be unified whether in the cloud or on premises.”

 

“The business application platform uses Azure AD as an identity repository for authentication and authorization. When users sign in to business application platform services via a secure (HTTPS) website, all communication between the user’s web browser and a business application platform service is encrypted.”

 

Thus based on this comments above by Microsoft, it is apparent that the Business Application Platform (which consists of Power BI, PowerApp and Flow) is encrypted at rest as well as in transit.

 

Hope, this link will help us understand all the security features.
