QBank DAM – Security


QBank is not only easy to use it’s also
easy to customize according to your needs, while maintaining the security you
require both towards internal and external users. QBank is easily
integrated with your existing SSO solutions, so you can get up and running
quickly mirroring and keeping any access levels in your current security model.
This is how it works! Every qbank user gets their own profile and login
information. A user is linked to one or many groups. Groups determine what the
user gets access to in QBank, for example what folders and files the user
can access. Groups are inter linked to one or more roles, and roles are what
ultimately determine which usage rights the group has access to. A role may
include functionalities such as the ability to upload, publish, edit assets
and so on. Everything down to the ability to log into QBank can be controlled by
roles. Users may experience the same QBank installation differently depending
on what groups they have been assigned to. For example, one user might have
permission to upload and publish assets, while another only works with the
administration of users and their groups and roles, control access to assets. By
connecting groups to different categories you can also set category
access directly to specific users, and even give or deny users or groups access
for a specific asset. In addition to the standard access to
files security is applied on a so called crud level, which means that it’s
possible to specify for example that certain groups can view assets in a
certain category but not edit them. While others can edit but not delete and so on.
This access model’s applied on all objects that are created and handled in
QBank, such as folders, Moodboards, and publishing locations. When an
external user needs access to a file in QBank it’s easy to create a Moodboard which becomes a public link to the file. The Moodboard can then be accessed only through the link you share with the end user. It can be protected with a pin
code and an expiration date, making sure no files remain in circulation longer
than they are supposed to. An alternative to using a Moodboard is to publish
media directly to an external location, such as a public front end or FTP. Where
authorized users can access them. QBank users are able to send links to media in QBank to each other, but of course since these links are within QBank they
can only be accessed by authorized users. Don’t let the extensive capability of QBank’s adaptability scare you, the default configuration of groups and roles will
work for most of your needs. The security model can also be adjusted at any time
needed and is like everything else in QBank, in no way locked once you get
started. Safety isn’t expensive it’s priceless. Welcome to QBank!
