Enterprise features

Some of Memgraph's features are only available in Enterprise Edition. Take a look how to use features related to authentication, authorization and user privileges.

Manage authentication and authorization

In large organizations it is often difficult to manage permissions that staff members have in the organization. Organizations typically use an LDAP server to hold and manage the permissions. Because LDAP servers are already set-up in most large organizations, it is convenient for the organization to allow all staff members to have access to the database using the already available centralized user management system.

Manage user privileges

Most databases have multiple users accessing and modifying data within the database. This might pose a serious security concern for the system administrators that wish to grant only certain privileges to certain users. A typical example would be an internal database of some company which tracks data about their employees. Naturally, only certain users of the database should be able to perform queries which modify that data.

At Memgraph, we provide the administrators with the option of granting, denying or revoking a certain set of privileges to some users or groups of users (i.e. users that are assigned a specific user role), thereby eliminating such security concerns.

Manage label-based access control

Sometimes, authorizing the database by granting and denying clause privileges is not enough to make the database fully secure. Certain nodes and relationships can be confidential and must be restricted from viewing and manipulating by multiple users.

In response to the need for such authorization, Memgraph has advanced its authorization features to enable authorization on node labels and relationship edge types. By applying authorization to graph's first class citizens, a database administrator can now keep all the data in one database while keeping any private data secure from those who don't have adequate permission.
