Transparent Encryption

SG-TDE-MySQL makes it easy to encrypt the MySQL data and helps manage the data encryption keys in accordance with best security practices. It makes use of a high-performance data encryption engine that provides strong encryption for all writes and decryption for all reads. Encryption of data provides protection against theft of media or data images. Any probing of files would only yield blocks of ciphertext.

  • SG-TDE-MySQL uses the AES algorithm to encrypt MySQL data files.
  • Data encryption is performed inside the kernel. 
  • There is less than 2% overall degradation due to encryption.
