Magnify integrates with most enterprise security frameworks to control accessibility to sensitive information. Security can be configured in many ways to address varied security strategies. Security plug-ins extend the ability of Magnify to authenticate users and authorize the data to which they can have access.

Magnify security is maintained through the WebFOCUS Client Security architecture. Accessing a secure report requires login credentials. When Magnify uses Lucene, security rules added to the indexed data trigger an external security program (security exit) that determines user authentication and data authorization.
