Azure SQL receives security upgrades during Ignite 2023

At Ignite 2023, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella declared, “This is the age of copilots,” and he backed his words with action. Copilots and Artificial Intelligence took the spotlight, but security in Azure SQL also received noteworthy features now available to the general public.

In this webinar series, we’ll delve into two of the most promising features that enhance the security and privacy of sensitive data in the Azure cloud. These features deserve more attention, which is why we’ve decided to spotlight them and provide insights into the details of these new tools added to (Azure) SQL Server through two webinars.

No longer will you struggle to answer questions like:

  • “Hey Bob, there is an updated value in my database that seems fishy. How can I be sure that my data can be trusted?”
  • “Hey Tania, is the data transferred to and from my SQL Server databases encrypted?”
  • “Hey Tania, are we sure that our PII data is protected in our database?”

Get answers to questions such as:

  • What is Ledger in Azure SQL and SQL Server? Why should I use it?

  • What is Always Encrypted with (VBS) secure enclaves doing for me exactly?

  • What is Entra Authentication and what are the different options?

  • What are the new, most prevalent (Azure) SQL security features other than Ledger or Always Encrypted?

Always Encrypted

Friday, December 15, 11:30 AM until 12:30 PM

Always Encrypted in SQL Server is designed to protect your sensitive data. It allows you to encrypt information within client applications, effectively separating those who own and view the data from those managing it. Our webinar will look at all the details and share our insights on how to implement it.

Ledger in Azure SQL DB, Managed Instance or SQL Server

Ledger provides tamper-evidence capabilities within your database. This ensures data can be trusted, as well as help attest to third parties that information has not been tampered with. In this free webinar, you’ll discover how Ledger protects data from any attacker or high-privileged user. Plenty of demonstrations will make the tool tangible.
