Map Intelligence SecurityThe exact nature of the access consumers will have to the data will depend on their business role and their concomitant level of access as managed by the enterprise SOE security and the BI portal.

In a typical BI enterprise environment, Map Intelligence sits within the BI reporting and security framework and does not have its own duplicated security structure.  Map Intelligence reports are usually accessed via a BI security portal whereby all business data and access control is managed by the portal environment.

The majority of Map Intelligence BI deployments are server based and no desktop installation is required.  The only exception to this is the MI Client for Excel.  In both of these cases special privileges may be required for installation but not usually during operation.

As installed, Map Intelligence resides in a Tomcat webserver which can use SSL/TLS. Map Intelligence configuration controls it's SSL connections.

Map Intelligence is typically browser based when deployed with BI tools. Subject to security constraints, users with Internet access can usually be provided with remote access to Map Intelligence. 

When internet access is not available Map Intelligence has been configured by customers to run in stand-alone mode in an imaged laptop environment.

In operating with external spatial sources such as Google Maps, Map Intelligence does not send business data to Google but instead it uses its own internal spatial engine to generate the business layers as spatial interfaces and pulls in Google Maps behind these. This removes any of the security issues normally associated with use of remote services such as Google Maps.
