Those should be secure. Some people have built these entirely on internal networks as well. Tamas Foldi - do you have a good test for the security concerned?
For this specific type of question I would reach out to the Technical Support team as they will be able to align you with a Security team resoruce who would be able to better speak to this.
Hope this helps!

In short: it will not leak your data as long as you are using https for communication.
Also, any credentials like username and password or API keys are stored in tableau's trusted store, in encrypted format.
To make sure that nobody can sniff your data from network use HTTPS with strong cypher encryption.
The only point when data can be accessed in plain format is the tde/hyper file stored on the server's filesystem. Thus, administrators for the OS of the Tableau Server can access the data in some circumstances. If this is a problem, you can also store the data in an encrypted format in your extracts and decrypt it on client side.
Hope this helps.
Eric - I marked Tamas reply as the correct reply to make sure others see his post and it comes up in search results higher.
Thank you for your responses! We have reached out to our Tableau representative and received the same answer from him as well. I was pretty sure this was the case since our solution will be on our internal network, but we like to have this kind of documentation before we move code that deals with sensitive date to production.Patrick A Van Der HydeTamas Foldi
Thank you for the reply Eric and best of luck.
