Database encryption has emerged as one of the leading end-point data security solutions at a time when an increasing number of organizations are faced with the threat of cyber-attacks and data theft or loss. Growing concerns regarding data privacy compliance regulations and data safety have now gained priority and companies have begun investing heavily in advanced database encryption solutions. Based on the compliance and security requirements of an organization, database encryption aims to protect the confidentiality of all forms of data stored in disks, files, or folders. Data is rendered unreadable for unauthorized persons, thereby ensuring that the confidential data is duly protected.
Database encryption, on the basis of deployment, can be either on-premise or cloud-based. Small and medium businesses and large enterprises are the main end-users of database encryption solutions, which are used for a number of applications including file/folder encryption, communication encryption, disk encryption, database encryption, and cloud encryption. Database encryption solutions are used in several industry verticals such as healthcare, telecommunications, aerospace and defense, banking, financial services, and insurance, government and public sector, and retail.
