Security Group:

In a company, all people do not have equal permissions. Based on the authority, the role of the personal privileges will be varied. This security group is responsible for giving the specific roles and responsibilities to the particular person in that organization. This enables what an administrator can do, what an intermediate can do and what an end user can do.

 Inbuilt groups :

Workday delivered groups :

Based on the rules defined by the workday, the environment contains some rules that get updated which cannot be changed/ modified/deleted.

Groups assigned on a context :

As the name indicates all the people have access to the whole data present in the network.Here all the users have equal priority


 In the company, all the people don’t have equal designations. Different person has different designations. And there will be some data that should be accessed by the only certain level of people. In such cases, this group will be used.


It is a combination of above two. It can be an intersection (or) the combination   of above two

For the purpose of safety, various security roles can be given to the people by the Workday environment. Let us discuss some of them.

Physical security:

Under fully redundant subsystem and compartmentalized security zones, Workday colocates its production system with host mission critical computer systems. Workday data centers have some following measures for transferring the data.

Multiple layers of authentication were required before getting access to the specific server area.

Security person monitor for 24/7

Some critical areas require two-step biometric authentication for high-security purposes.

Unauthorized access attempts are logged and monitored by data center security.

Network security:

workday is accessed by the user via internet protected by Transport layer security. This secures network traffic from passive eavesdropping, active tampering (or) forgery of messages.Penetration testing  and Vulnerability assessment of workday infrastructure evaluates the penetration testing and vulnerability  on a regular basis by both internal and external third-party vendors

 Before  going  to know further  security  models, let  us know about Encryption

Encryption is a process of converting the physical(raw) data into another form through certain predefined models like AES, DES  which a can be decrypted ( Changing from transformed to original form) at the receiver side.

Database Security:

Workday encrypts every attribute of the customer data before it gets stored in the databases. This encryption can be done using an AES algorithm which contains a key size of 256 bits. It has achieved this encryption because it is an in-memory object-oriented data meta.  Workday metadata is interpreted by Workday OMS and stored in memory. All data manipulations like INSERT, DELETE, and  UPDATE were committed to an MYSQL database.

Logical security:

An organization cannot be always in one place. The same organizations will be located in different places across the globe and different people have different access permission on data.  It enables the user to select the authentication type in cases like organizations where the organizations wish to use multiple authentication types for users based on the geographical organizational and variances.

Today workday is a leader in enterprise-class which is providing Software as a Service  (SaaS) solutions for managing the global business. Workday delivers unified Human capital management payroll and  Financial Management. More than 310 customers  have chosen Work Day.
