Database Encryption

Database Encryption

Protect digital data confidentiality with database encryption

Under the threat of targeted attacks on data at rest, effective database security has become increasingly important. Without a comprehensive strategy, a great deal of sensitive data could be at risk.

Storing and guaranteeing the availability of relevant data is one critical factor for the survivability of organizations - Laws & Regulations impose heavy fines if organisations fail to protect sensitive data.

The use of HSMs to encrypt databases protects and secures sensitive data.
