Join Webinar on SQL Server 2016 - Always Encrypted / Security. Thu 2/23/2017 from 12 PM to 1 PM
SQL Server has had ways to encrypt data in the past - for example, Transparent Data Encryption (TDE). This technology protects the data at rest and when the database files or backups are compromised. However it is accessible to the database itself and to anyone who can own it and obtain the key/certificate/password (system administrators, hackers, what have you). Always Encrypted is a new feature in SQL Server 2016, which encrypts the data both at rest *and* in motion (and keeps it encrypted in memory). Unlike TDE, as well, Always Encrypted allows you to encrypt only certain columns, rather than the entire database.
