Protecting Access to Local Data¶
This section applies to SpectX Server.
Through the file:// protocol SpectX can access data stored locally. This is the most convenient access method for users running SpectXDesktop in their computer, however, it presents several risks when deploying SpectX Server at the enterprise level.
