Now that QuickBase is no longer under the umbrella of Intuit, how can we give a solid level of comfort to our Public Utility clients regarding application security?

I have a couple of larger clients who recently expressed some concern over the level of security when it comes to QuickBase applications. Given QuickBase is no longer under the Intuit umbrella and in past articles, QuickBase has used Intuit Turbo Tax as an example of the level of security measures that were in place regarding personal information etc., what information does QuickBase have regarding this touchy subject so I can offer a level of comfort to these clients? Being a utility company, there are obvious reasons for the most secure Cloud based platforms.

I suggest that rather than use this user to user forum, that you put in a support ticket to be contacted about this as you are looking for assurances from QuickBase Inc. and not just whoever randomly haunts this forum.

But based on what I heard at EMPOWER 2016 communicated to Developers on the Monday before the general User Group meeting, and then at the general user group meeting, QuickBase is aggressively targeting larger companies and organizations.  The know to break though to 100% of possibly skeptical IT Managers that if anything they need to improve  the toolset available to IT managers for "Governance" type functionality and possibly two factor authentication for sign in.  So, they will be only adding to security features and not relaxing it.

Another example is their recognition that some IT managers will not allow cloud based storage (Box, DropBox, Google Drive) for the CSV sync functionality,s o the one of the next enhancements coming out will be CSV Sync via authentication to the companies local servers.  ie a security deliverable that mostly only larger IT shops would demand.

Hi Mark: Just few questions: I am working with a client and they have few concerns about following. Much appreciated if you could answer to my email as well

1. We are curious if we can implement a local QuickBase instance (hosted on our server in Australia). I heard it is possible through SFTP. I never worked in such scanrio since i am with QuickBase for last 6 years. But the main requirement for us is to have a local hosting not international.

2. Kindly send me some info on QuickBase data security and privacy policy and what standards Intuit meets internally/australian.

3. If there is a possibility of locally hosted QuickBase instance then what will be per user licence cost.

Kind Regards.

QuickBase is hosted in the cloud. You cannot host it locally.

For security "white papers" contact QuickBase Support using the HELP link at the top of any QuickBsse page.
