Franz launches Triple Attributes graph database security

Franz Inc., an early innovator in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and leading supplier of Semantic Graph Database technology for Knowledge Graphs, today announced Triple Attributes for its semantic graph database, AllegroGraph. This innovative feature for AllegroGraph provides the necessary power and flexibility to address high-security data environments such as HIPAA access controls, privacy rules for banks, and security models for policing, intelligence and government. AllegroGraph Triple Attributes for security is easier to use and provides more expressiveness than security methods in relational databases or property graph databases while avoiding performance degradations.

“Enterprises want the flexibility of graph databases, but they also want the security they have come to rely on with relational databases,” said Dr. Jans Aasman, CEO of Franz Inc. “Our new Triple Attributes gives organizations an elegant mechanism to implement the ultimate in graph database security.”

Graph databases are now common in many industries such as life sciences, healthcare, financial services, government, and intelligence. Graphs are particularly valuable in these sectors because of the complex nature of the data and need for powerful, yet flexible data analytics. Graph databases allow visibility across the data – enabling organizations to share data and show how data is connected.

Triple Attributes provides the linking and discovery power of Graph Databases with the security of need-to-know access. This approach has the flexibility to implement HIPAA for the healthcare industry, the privacy rules for the financial industry and the government models and policies for classified information.

Triple Attribute Security is available in AllegroGraph v6.3, which also includes:
