Data Encryption - Database

Categorized as:

Is anyone doing anything in Lawson as far as encrypting their data in their databases? (i.e., in Oracle) If so, did you experience any performance issues when you implemented it? Has anyone put a monitoring tool in place that could alert of a potential security breach

Encryption and Encryption at rest is supported by Infor Lawson but will have performance impact albeit negligible. Typically there is a 3 – 4 millisecond delay added to the current performance metrics. In some cases the time may increase depending on how large the table being accessed is, but again it’s negligible.

Reports will need to be tested for performance since each report may be hitting different/multiple tables. Increased completion times could be significant. Read more...

In S3, encryption is built into the database, not the application. With Landmark, certain tables and fields are encrypted out of the box. Show less...
