Using bitmapped indexes during the encryption process
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 13, 2009
Relational Database Consultants Inc. (RDC), http://www.relationalwizards.com, proudly announces the new release of the Encryption Wizard for Oracle, a GUI-based database encryption and security suite that automates data-at-rest encryption for Oracle databases.
"Using bitmapped indexes during the encryption process," explains RDC marketing director Don Parret, "makes encryption fast and easy to resolve in case of a database failure."
In a recent benchmark, the Encryption Wizard encrypted one million rows of Oracle data in just over 3 minutes using AES-256 Encryption and Oracle's dbms_crypto API. By creating a bitmap index initially, the Encryption Wizard marks each row encrypted, allowing for easy resolution after a database failure or lock contention error.
"Performance for the Encryption Wizard is outstanding, and it is the product I would recommend to anyone for purchase," states Oracle DBA David de Manbey who headed the University of Hartford project to encrypt Oracle databases running Banner SunGard software.
Built around an intuitive GUI interface, the Encryption Wizard is the ideal tool for security managers and database administrators who are looking for an affordable and tested transparent data encryption solution that is easy to install and won't degrade performance.
Since 2002, the Encryption Wizard has enabled Oracle customers combat data-theft and meet database encryption compliance standards such as CISP, HIPAA and PCI. Trial downloads of the Encryption Wizard for Oracle are available at: http://www.relationalwizards.com/html/oracle_encryption.html.
