Attivio's Active Intelligence Engine® (AIE®) enables a whole new world of business insights by freely integrating, correlating and presenting all related enterprise information — structured and unstructured, internal and external.
Providing this unprecedented unified information access throughout the enterprise is made possible — and practicable — by Attivio's Active Security model.
Active Security has solved the long-standing serious problems of providing access security controls to unstructured content so common in alternative solutions.
While user security access to relational databases (structured data) is defined and maintained with relative ease, managing security permissions for unstructured content (documents, etc.) remains maddeningly complex and labor-intensive. Legacy enterprise search tools typically deploy document-centric security models ("early binding" and "late binding"), which cause poor user query response time, demand substantial ongoing system maintenance, and pose such challenging ongoing technical tasks as updating metadata and other parts of a record.
Attivio AIE eliminates these frustrating issues, providing the same easy security maintenance, high scalability and fast performance as you would expect for a relational database, while rapidly unifying and presenting all related structured data and unstructured content.
This brief will explore the significant technical problems that accompany early binding and late binding user permissioning for unstructured information – problems that render early and late binding systems impossible to use in practical terms.
You will also discover how Attivio’s Active Security model eliminates these issues to provide security access controls that are as easily created and maintained as for a database, as evidenced by two case studies in which Active Security made the difference between business success or failure.
