User and group permissions can be controlled for read/write/modify rights. Audit trail for version history, modifying user and provision to roll back to previous versions is also supported in Alfresco. Unauthorized access is hence, eliminated by control over the content and its access.

By organizing content across sites and folders, access to critical information becomes simple. Powerful search helps find key information within fraction of seconds. This is further simplified with filters and tags which reduce the number of results, that is, documents returned, making it easier and faster to reach the right document.
