Database encryption changes

AppScan® Enterprise no longer uses proprietary encryption mechanisms to prevent unauthorized transfers of its database because there are other third-party mechanisms that are designed to specifically perform physical layer encryption with less impact on performance. This type of encryption is usually applied at the database server level; for example, SQL Server Enterprise Edition has a built-in encryption TDE mechanism (Transparent Data Encryption). TDE encrypts the data residing in the database or in backups on physical media. SQL Server Standard Edition uses Windows Encrypting File System.
