CipherTrust Application Key Management for Microsoft SQL Server EKM (8.5)
CAKM for Microsoft SQL Server EKM provides data encryption capabilities via Microsoft SQL Server Extensible Key Management (EKM).
It allows the users to perform Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) and cell level encryption, using the CipherTrust Manager as an external Key Manager.
The advantages of using the CipherTrust Manager are as follows:
Additional security is provided by separation of administrative access. For example, the system can be set up so that CipherTrust Application Data Protection Security Administrator can access only the keys, and the database administrator can access only the database.
Helps achieve PCI security standards.
Centralized storage and management of encryption keys.
