I think the subject says it all. I've noticed something with the DB that the developers here are working on (not a DB I had a hand in, but I'm being asked to make suggestions, etc) Namely, they've got some rather "sensitive" information stored un-encrypted. We've got develop this application for the lowest common denominator (read as: clients who are too cheap to buy SQL, and will be using SQL Express,) so I'd like to know if SQL Express will encrypt cell data (preferably using certificates rather than a password.)
I tried to find the feature comparison on MS, but all they have now is SQL2012, and it doesn't say one way or the other, only for TDE.
I'm going to work on getting an SQL Express instance going somewhere so I can try this out, but if I can get a quick answer, it'll save some time for me.
