Have you heard? IBM Informix 12.10.xC8 is publicly available for download! The most significant update to the product in this release includes on-disk encryption, also known as Encryption At Rest (EAR). The EAR feature allows you to encrypt the data at the lowest level, on the disk. Now you can rest easy, knowing that your data is encrypted and secure in the event of a physical disk loss or theft. In a world where low cost computers are physically accessible, increasingly used for temporary storage, aggregation, and analytics of data, it is vital to keep the data secure. You can start encrypting your storage spaces by upgrading to 12.10.xC8.
