Protect your information
Encrypt data in an entire database or in data files without changing application codes. In addition, you can centralise auditing with new comprehensive data auditing capabilities, such as auditing when data has been read or when data modifications have been made. You can also monitor all events at both the server and database levels.
Reduce total cost of ownership by simplifying administrative tasks
Enforce configuration policy compliance and apply policies throughout your organisation with Declarative Management Framework. Businesses can also troubleshoot, tune, and monitor one or more instances of SQL Server across the organisation with Performance System Analysis.
