Vertica by itself , no voltage integration. does it have data encrypted at rest by default?

does the customer need to configure SecureData/Voltage to have encryption at rest implemented? I would think any data at rest needs to be encrypted. we did this with oracle using Vormetric. which was at the disk level.

    Currently you can use SecureData/Voltage to encryption at rest by column. On the road map is a feature to encrypt data at rest by table.

    The cool thing about Voltage is the FPE feature.

    Please let us know if you have any specific questions.

    Hi @Jim_Knicely , is this feature of encrypting data at rest by table now implemented? Is this part of v12.x?

    Built-in encryption at rest is still a roadmap item. Please file a support case if this is a requirement for your application.

    Very straightforward solution is to encrypt disks on OS level. This is a very standard approach, supported by linux out of box.
    Encryption in Vertica is nice to have, but I would not bother with it, in favour of OS-level encryption.
