SecureFM is a FileMaker Pro plug-in that prevents the undesired creation, modification, or deletion of data by giving database designers and system administrators the ability to selectively disable FileMaker Pro menu items and functions such as New Database, Delete Record, Delete All, Replace, New Record, Close, or Exit/Quit (and their associated keyboard equivalents) while keeping other menu items available to the user. Disabled functions can continue to be executed by script, giving a developer complete control over the conditions under which a user can access them.
The open environment of FileMaker Pro means that if a user has been given the privilege to edit any data in FileMaker, that user commonly has the ability to edit all data, including the modification and/or deletion of many records at once. For developers trying to create a secure solution, this can present a real problem. SecureFM enables developers and system administrators to ensure data integrity by preventing the inadvertent modification or deletion of records, with greater power than FMP's own Custom Menus function.
