Relational databases are built on a powerful model that is used for a variety of information needs in organizations of all types and sizes. Businesses use relational databases to track inventory, process ecommerce transactions, manage customer information, and more. This relational model excels at maintaining data consistency across applications and other instances. Challenges arise, however, when businesses need to protect the information in these databases. Sensitive and private data must be consistently protected across all databases in a way that makes it behave in the right manner every time. And traditional database security is often at odds with database usability.
