Protecting and advancing portfolio data

The BuildingMinds Software as a Service (SaaS) is a cloud-native multi-tenant solution that provides a single source of truth. Developed in cooperation with its technology partner Microsoft, keeping data secure plays an absolutely central role at every level. The security measures are PEN test approved and offer the flexibility of Microsoft Azure Cloud – a broad range of innovative options for true peace-of-mind data integration. And with no restrictions for an on-premises system.

Maintaining data privacy and integrity

The BuildingMinds solution keeps data right where it belongs: In the hands of the customer. The platform is built on a microservice structure, in which every microservice operates separately and remains the owner of its data storage.

The only people who control access to the data are the customers themselves. That control is structured around individual objects in the platform (such as sites or buildings) and are considered separate entities for authorization, each requiring individual permission for users to view or edit. To verify access permissions, user ID and the associated permissions are stored in the authorization microservice’s data store. Log in is enabled through single sign-on backed by Azure Active Directory B2C or an API gateway secured with a token validation service.

The customer decides what data is processed on the platform and the stored data is restricted to ensure the functionality of the software itself. Both the BuildingMinds platform and its partners comply with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). As part of the data onboarding process, all data streams are harmonized and validated, and the platform ensures data integrity through regular plausibility checks.

Onboarding data security

During data onboarding, customer data is transferred to the platform via the platform’s file storage or over the general connector from IoT or customer systems. Either way, the data is validated and mapped in the staging area of the data lake according to the independently developed Common Data Model. The data is then transferred to the trusted, restricted area where it can be safely integrated by the platform’s various microservices.
