    Challenges

    Central Point of Failure

    Databases represent a central aggregation point—and a focal point for thieves. Your databases, whether on-premises or in the cloud, hold the data that matters to your business and that is prized by would-be attackers.

    Insufficient Security Controls

    Insufficient security controls expose your organization to fraud and data breaches. For example, when key management is handled within the database, the DBA has control of both the data and key. Database encryption solutions often disregard the potential for insider abuse, as well as advanced persistent threats, where an attacker imitates a privileged user.

    Lost Keys

    Key loss can render data unavailable, since decryption would be impossible—disrupting business operations.

    Solution Brief: Enhanced Security of Database Encryption Keys

    Database encryption solutions help protect enterprises' most sensitive data. Entrust partners with leading database encryption providers to high assurance protection of the underlying encryption keys.

    Solution Brief: TDE Key Management

    Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle Database solutions provide native transparent database encryption (TDE) that protects the data stored in their customers’ databases. Managing the TDE keys presents challenges such as isolating them from the assets they protect and storing them securely. Entrust key management solutions centralize key management for Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle Database, providing greater command over the keys while increasing data security.
