SQL Server offers the option to use Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) to encrypt database data files. This protects data while at rest.

CAUTION:
If Encrypting database data files is enabled on your SQL server, the performance of your main Directory will decrease by 3% - 5%.

For information on how to encrypt data files, refer to your SQL Server documentation.
