Easy Security vs Business Central Native Security

    We are looking at purchasing Easy Security because we understand it has field-level security and better Soxs compliance than Nav 2013. Before I make this change, I've been tasked with determining if upgrading to Business Central offers better security and would obsolete the need for Easy Security. Can you help me provide an explanation of why we want Easy Security over using Native Nav or BC. Or let me know if BC actually does provide better security. In particular, we need field level security, but other benefits that could help me sell it would be helpful as well.

    I just installed Business Central's Cronus database last week.  I haven't noticed anything new for security vs. NAV 2018 except for what is called, "Effective Permissions" which is a list of all objects that a user has access to and the level of access that they have (ie. read, modify, delete, run, etc.)

    Effective Permissions
    BTW, EasySecurity does a great job with field level permissions (I use it in NAV2013R2).  It was a little confusing to figure out at first, but it has become simple to use after getting past the learning curve.  Per from MergeTool.com provides great support and valuable training.

    Thanks Lewis. What about from 2013? Are there any security improvements from 2013 to 2018?

    Great point by Matt (below) about the SaaS (cloud) model for BC.  I don't know what plans MergeTool has, but I would guess that they'll be at Summit to talk about it.

    Between NAV 2013 and NAV 2018, Security by USER GROUPS was added and pages and factboxes were added that create more visibility as to who has what permissions, ex: Permission Set By User, Permission Set by User Group, etc.

    Permission Set by User

    While there are additions to security above and beyond NAV 2013, there's nothing to do true field level security. I think it is a solid product, but keep in mind that if you are thinking of moving to BC SaaS, Easy Security needs to modify base objects in order to work (unless something has changed). That's not currently allowed in a SaaS environment.
