TDE encryption as a mitigator

With GDPR hitting Europe next year we have been looking at options to comply and mitigate the risk.  One of the primary mitigating factors for GDPR is if the data is encrypted.

We have been looking at TDE to encrypt our SQL databases.

Firstly, does Outsystems support TDE encyption on the database and secondly, has anyone used TDE to encrypt their Outsystems database?


Hi Steve,

The usage of Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) to encrypt SQL databases is completely transparent to OutSystems and we know that there are customers running the platform against databases configured to use TDE in their on-premise installations.

So, the answers to your questions are: Yes and Yes
