Designed to protect data integrity and privacy and to support efficient data access and collaboration, the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 security model:
- Supports a licensing model for users.
- Provides users with access only to the information that they require to do their jobs.
- Categorizes types of users by role and restrict access based on those roles.
- Prevents users from accessing objects that they do not own or share.
- Supports data sharing by providing the ability to grant users with access to objects that they do not own to participate in a specified collaborative effort.
