DBMS provided security :- Any database system requires you to login and then process the data depending on the rights given by the DBA to the user who has logged in. The advatage of such a system is securing the data and providing the user and the DBA the secured platform. Any user who logs in cannot do whatever he want but his role can be defined very easily. There is no major disadvantage about the DBMS provided security apart from overhead of storing the rights and priviledges about the users.

Application-provided security :- It is much similar to the DBMS provided security but the only difference is that its the duty of the programmer creating the application to provide all the seurities so that the data is not mishandled.

Disadvantages of DBMS:
1.Database is quite costly and demanding.
2.Lower efficiency
