Application Layer Encryption Overview
Works How You Work
Simple encrypt / decrypt API access and language support for Java, C# for .NET, and C/C++ makes development easy and includes support for most structured database development environments. Field level encryption reduces the complexity of cryptographic operations through API level function calls that require only the data that needs to be encrypted and the associated keying information. The result is streamlined processing because original field length and type are preserved.
Works With What You Have In Place
Commonly used security methods such as Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) only provide protection for data at rest. Field level encryption complements TDE and provides a (Database Management Systems) DBMS agnostic means for application developers to encrypt selected data. In the event that data moves to other platforms or environments, security is guaranteed. Additionally, administrators can back up databases without having visibility to the information itself.
