Yes, Tableau Server can handle row and column level filtering in a couple of ways:
- Tableau can simply inherit the row/column level security from the data source it connects to. This is useful in situations where investments are already made to secure the data source for all applications; user based row/column level security can be inherited based on different means of delegating the viewer information back to the data source. This may include using strategies such as impersonation, initial SQL, Kerberos, or simply prompting users to log in with their own DB account: Data Security
- Tableau Server also has its own layer of user based filtering logic that can be managed on the application level. User Filters and user functions can be tied to user groups, where either rows are filtered out or columns are hidden based upon functions used. An example of how this can be implemented can be found here: Restrict Data Access with User Filters and Row Level Security
Hope this helps!
