The Discussion

    Thanks for the video Jakub!

    Great demo, good to know the high-level difference between encryption types - Deterministic v Randomised.

    Would be good to know which SQL Server versions this is available, Azure SQL too?

    What kind of security compliance regulations would drive this - PCI comes to mind, anything else?

    Is there a considerable performance hit? Just decrypting the data or it affects query performance too?

    If you want [for whatever reason] to get plain-text in SSMS - is there a way to do that?
