Security and AccessTurn on to data security!

Data security is a hot topic! The loss of data via cyber attacks can lead to loss of customers and reputation, lead to regulatory action, and even expose you to large fines. InterBase is here to help with its flexible on-disk and over the wire encryption capabilities. InterBase also benefits from inbuilt user authentication and security in place wherever your data files reside. Choose to encrypt the entire database or just a critical table or column, and define who can decode that data with powerful role based authentication. InterBase supports both Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and Data Encryption Standard (DES) encryption.
