Connection security

There are a variety of connection solutions available for configuring access to remote data sources, and there are several factors to consider when determining the best way to connect. Some connection types are simpler to set up, while others offer enhanced security characteristics but require the involvement of internal IT to deploy software and/or hardware. The connection types available are:

  • Direct connection (inbound)

  • SSH tunnel (inbound, preferred)

  • Bridged connection appliance (outbound)
