Encryption without Access Restrictions

Very often vendors have a requirement to encrypt database files without restricting access for users. In this case encryption is absolutely transparent. Additionally you may allow SQL statements to be visible by SQL Profiler and unencrypted backups.

Important: with default settings DbDefence will encrypt and protect your database from unauthorized access. It will add an additional layer of security and all existing application will lose access to the database. If you want maximum transparency and don't want additional access control you need to change the settings before encryption.

To encrypt the database without access restrictions, press "Change Options" in DbDefence Encryptor before encrypting the database. On the following dialog mark "Only Encryption" and "Allow SQL Profiling" (if required) as shown.

To setup unencrypted backups for the database please follow these instructions.
