When the QPR Metrics data is about to move over Internet (or intranet) there is a natural concern to encrypt the data and authenticate the access to the confidential business information. QPR Metrics has quite a few different options to do this.
•Secure Sockets Layer for http connections (SSL)
•One-way encryption for password storage (Modified DES)
•Win Crypt encryption for permanent connections (Windows clients)
•Virtual Private Networks and SSH tunneling
•Built-in data encoding routines
