Storing data and security in FileMaker
If not properly configured and housed, the FileMaker files you work with may be at risk for security breaches.
- While the FileMaker Pro 18 Advanced client can be used to access any file locally with the .fmp12 format, the 18 client is not compatible for use with files hosted on FileMaker Servers 15 or below. Check with your FileMaker administrator first if you are unsure of the FileMaker Server version currently in use by your area.
