How to Ensure a Smooth Transition to Microsoft Dynamics GP 10's New "Pessimistic" Security Model
What does the totally revamped security model in Microsoft Dynamics GP 10 mean to executives faced with the challenge of upgrade to the new application?
The biggest change in Dynamics GP 10 is the new role-based security model. This new methodology has some clear security, usability and compliance benefits over the old user class model.
Pessimistic vs. Optimistic Security
The old model used "optimistic" security, meaning that
as soon as a user was added to a
company, the user was granted global access within that company. The user retained that access until the user
was added to a class or until an administrator revoked access.
