QlikView allows for the use of custom HTTP headers.

From version 12.30 onwards, this can be configured with the QlikView Web Server (see QlikView WebServer: Custom HTTP Header). For any previous versions, Microsoft IIS is required. 

HTTP headers are used to utilize inbuilt browser features or other use cases for unique environments. These headers could include and are not limited to X-XSS-Protection, Content-Type, X-Frame-Options ... etc
