SQL-Shield Released ! SQL Shield is a built-in tool for SQL Server that offers hacker-proof encryption for triggers, views and procedures; none of the currently available SQL decryptors are capable of cracking SQL Shield encryption. Most importantly, all encrypted procedures remain executable! Moreover, installing SQL Shield does not affect any settings and does not replace default encryption options entirely.

Among our customers are financial and medical organizations, internet service providers, industrial companies, banks, solution providers and entertainment sites. XP_CRYPT has built its reputation serving customers who demand the very best. They are different in budget: from small hosting providers up to companies listed in NASDAQ.
