OpenEdge Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) balances both security and performance needs in a complete out-of-the-box solution, using standard encryption libraries and encryption key management for secure, encrypted data.
Controlling access to stored private data, or "at rest" is at the core of the OpenEdge TDE solution. This is accomplished by combining cryptography technologies and processes to give a security administrator or database administration control of who can access the private data within the database.
Execute at full speed with less than 2% performance degradation while encrypting and decrypting. TDE includes both policy tools and a secure encryption key store separate from the database. Leveraging the authentication, authorization and auditing functionality inherent in Progress® OpenEdge® and the additional Advanced Business Language (ABL) security features. OpenEdge TDE provides seamless data protection on disk, in backups and in binary dump files and supports leading encryption ciphers.
