"At-rest" database encryption helps protect against the threat of malicious activity by performing real-time encryption and decryption of the database, associated backups, and transaction log files at rest without requiring changes to the application. All data in the database is converted into an unintelligible form, such that if the database files are ever stolen, the data stored on them is inaccessible.
