SQL Shield 9 for SQL Server 2022

Activecrypt Software is proud to announce the release of SQL Shield for SQL Server 2022 all editions.


SQL professionals agree that the default trigger, view and procedure encryption that comes with MSSQL is ineffective and easily broken. In fact, Google generates over 3700 links for a search phrase “SQL decryptor”, offering dozens of software solutions that can bypass MSSQL native encryption. Yet, for many companies that use MSSQL for processing sensitive and confidential data, compromising the integrity of encrypted procedures or triggers is not an option. Here you can find such decryptors. We defeat them all!

Database Encryption tools:

SQL Shield is a built-in tool for MSSQL and SQL Express that offers extra 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. The users always have an option to choose which encryption settings to apply.
