Using SQL Server Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) with Dynamics NAV

Over the last few months, the Dynamics NAV team has been testing compatibility with SQL Server Transparent Data Encryption (TDE), and we are now proud to announce that the following Dynamics NAV versions all support SQL Server Transparent Data Encryption (TDE):

  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2018
  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017
  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016
  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015

With TDE, you can encrypt sensitive data in the database and protect the keys that are used to encrypt the data with a certificate. TDE performs real-time I/O encryption and decryption of the data and log files to protect data at rest. TDE can assist in the ability to comply with many laws, regulations, and guidelines established in various industries.

At the time of writing, Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) is available in Enterprise Edition of SQL Server as well as Azure SQL Database.
