Security in Qlik is embedded across the company and an integral part of how Qlik develops software. It is designed to cover all facets of security disciplines within the company from software development to SaaS operations to corporate information technology security.

Qlik incorporates leading security technologies and modern open standards to provide users with the confidence that their data and analyses are secure. Additionally, Qlik Cloud Services and its operating infrastructure provide security using a number of methods:

Secure Software Development Lifecycle:

Qlik’s development model follows an adapted implementation of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) and industry best practices for quality assurance. Qlik’s Software Security Office incorporates regular static code analysis, threat modelling, third-party vulnerability scanning, and pen-testing into Qlik’s software development process.

Vulnerability Management:

For security-related incidents, Qlik follows a Responsible Disclosure approach for any vulnerability that rates as High or Critical by our Software Security Office. This approach includes publishing Security Bulletins to our customer and partner portals, collaborating with the reporter of the vulnerability if applicable, creating software fixes as soon as possible, and/or providing mitigation until fixed.

Secure Operations:

Qlik proactively monitors production environments to identify and resolve any vulnerabilities that could compromise data security. Qlik works with independent third parties who perform vulnerability assessments against the infrastructure, platform and applications that make up Qlik’s product portfolio.
