With the launch of BusinessObjects XI, Business Objects has raised the bar in BI security by delivering RSA 128-bit encryption as the standard BI platform security level. Most other BI vendors provide lower encryption levels as standard and require customers to purchase and install separate encryption modules to fully secure their data at the level that Business Objects provides out of the box.

BusinessObjects XI offers RSA 128-bit encryption as a standard feature to ensure that data stays secure. RSA encryption is the industry standard for use in securing applications, and RSA 128-bit encryption is widely considered unbreakable. In addition, Business Objects has also added support for Kerberos network authentication protocols. The BusinessObjects XI platform is built on a modern, Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), and all communication between services is encrypted. In addition, BusinessObjects XI builds on the only BI platform that is Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Datacenter certified for reliability.
