Organizations of all levels are making significant investments to digitize and modernize business systems and operations to better take advantage of the cloud. But not every company can just pick up and move every single part of their business. Whether its regulatory or strict firewall policies, some operations, and data must remain behind a firewall or within a virtual private cloud (VPC). 

Customers that fall into this category get stuck in the middle between wanting to adopt SaaS offerings but keeping data where it is. Luckily, Qlik has made it possible for customers of Qlik Cloud to deploy a full enterprise SaaS analytics environment with safe, secure access to data that lives and breathes behind a firewall.  

Qlik Data Gateway - Direct Access provides an encrypted connection to Qlik cloud that allows Qlik Sense SaaS applications to securely access and analyze data that resides behind your organization's firewall. No matter if your protected data is on-premises or in a virtual private cloud, Direct Access provides a secure way to analyze that data in Qlik Sense SaaS. 

Qlik Cloud offers enterprise-grade solutions for data ingestion into Qlik Sense SaaS with respect to governed access of internal data landscape(s) of an organization - no matter where the data resides,  in the cloud or somewhere behind a firewall. 

How it Works

The Qlik Data Gateway acts as a bridge from data sources into Qlik Cloud, allowing Qlik Sense SaaS application to securely access and analyze data behind a firewall or within a VPC. 

The Data Gateway is installed on a system in an organization’s network behind a firewall and allows secure encrypted connections between data sources and the Qlik Cloud tenant. The Data Gateway establishes a mutual authenticated and encrypted connection using HTPPS.  

Qlik Cloud sends a query to the gateway and the gateway relays the query to the defined data source which is configured with a connector. The data is then streamed directly from the data source to Qlik Cloud – it’s important to know that the data is always in transit and never physically resides on the data gateway.  

For a tour, please check out the Connect and Learn pane on the bottom right of your hub or inside of the QMC by going into the Data Gateway portal from the Configuration pane on the left.
