RDC Software, http://www.relationalwizards.com, released the latest 7.2 version of its database security suite today, the Encryption Wizard for Oracle. The database encryption, security and auditing software now supports null column encryption -- the ability to encrypt null data using AES-256 or other ciphers.

“With the ability to encrypt null columns,” explains RDC marketing director Don Parret, “the Encryption Wizard protects Oracle table data where the absence of specific information may be of value itself.”

Using automated decrypted views and triggers, the Encryption Wizard is able to serve applications AES transparent encrypted data, appearing as table data to the authenticated user. Now Oracle security managers can protect database columns with null values that are sensitive in nature.

“Utilizing strong encryption for null data using AES-256,” says Parret, “null values cannot be distinguished from regular data after encryption, thus creating another layer of protection against data-theft.”

Built around an intuitive Java interface, the Encryption Wizard is an ideal tool for security managers and database administrators who are looking for an affordable and tested transparent data encryption solution as an alternative to Oracle TDE.

The Encryption Wizard has been protecting Oracle databases since 2002. Fully-functional trial downloads are available at:
