C4SQL now integrates user permissions with Windows and MS SQL on the central server, making the setup of any additional security model unnecessary.
With integrated security, a Windows authenticated user can be created as a server login and is effortlessly assigned to a C4SQL database role (Figure 26). Setting up granular user security is just one of the numerous advantages that integrating to the security model of MS SQL offers. A big convenience with Windows integrated security is that a user enters no login credentials to access the application.
