R data security RRS feed

  • Question

  • To load any open source product on my workplace computer, I will need to provide how the security of our company systems and data will not be compromised. Does using Microsoft R Open present challenges to be overcome in maintaining system and data security?

  • Microsoft R Open doesn't provide any specific guarantees, it's provided under the exact same terms as open source R. If your workplace has already validated other open source tools in use there (do they use Linux, for example?) they could follow the same processes for R.

    Your IT department likely already has a license for Microsoft SQL Server. Let them know that its terms and policies cover the included Microsoft ML Services (which in turn includes Microsoft R Open), which may satisfy their security validation needs.
