Confidential computing with Always Encrypted using enclaves

Always Encrypted using enclaves enables rich queries on encrypted data.
Imagine a database system that can perform computations on sensitive data without ever having access to the data in plaintext. With such confidential computing capabilities, you could protect your sensitive data from powerful adversaries, including malicious machine admins, cloud admins, or rogue DBAs, while preserving database system’s processing power. With Always Encrypted using enclave technologies, including Intel Secure Guard Extensions (SGX), this powerful vision has become a reality. Join us for this session to learn about this game-changing technology and opportunities to preview it.
