Always Encrypted with Secure Enclaves for Azure SQL Database – Now Generally Available

Now released to general availability – always encrypted with secure enclaves increases confidential computing of Azure SQL. It helps to prevent sensitive data from being removed by rogue administrators, DBAs or cloud operators.

Data is encrypted and decrypted on the client-side without ever being revealed in plain text within the database system itself. The trusted execution environment is called a secure enclave. This enclave computes on plaintext, but from the outside data and code cannot be viewed.
