Access has security that can fairly easily be broken so the answer is no. If you require real security then I would suggest using SQL Server Express which has robust security and  is freely downloadable from Microsoft.

You're referring to copy protection? That is, you don't want UserB to copy the database from UserA's machine and run it on their own machine?

There are a couple of commercial products you can use:

www.sagekey.com 
http://www.zappersoftware.com/products.html
http://www.peterssoftware.com/ka.htm
http://www.granite.ab.ca/access/demo.htm (this one is a free "code-based" solution)

There are other ones out there ... just search on "ms access copy protection" for a lot of reading material
