Good support, stable, and offers encryption at both the column and table level
Pros and Cons
  • "The most valuable feature is the data encryption option for columns and tables."
  • "Having a single command to encrypt a table would be an improvement."

What is our primary use case?

The primary use of this product is to encrypt data contained within our Oracle database, allowing us to protect confidential information. One of the options is to encrypt column information, but we can encrypt entire tables, as well.

How has it helped my organization?

Using this product gives us the benefits of encrypting both confidential company data and personal data within our database.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the data encryption option for columns and tables. We are also getting the benefit of detection data. If I want to share data with another Oracle user then the data sharing is automatically detected. We don't need to modify anything. This is a complete security solution and all of the features that we are using are available off the shelf.

What needs improvement?

Encrypting a single column is straightforward, but encrypting at the table level requires more work and takes longer to complete. Having a single command to encrypt a table would be an improvement.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This is a very stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Oracle Advanced Security is easy to scale.

How are customer service and support?

We get good support from Oracle and we have no issues with them.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is not complex. We found it straightforward and simple. For us, the setup process included collecting all of the information that we needed. This included details like whether encryption would happen at the table or column-level. 

What other advice do I have?

So far, whatever requirement or needs that we have had, are handled by the database itself. We have not needed to design anything aside from it. Overall, it is a good solution and I can recommend it to anybody who wants to encrypt columnar data and protect it against theft. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
