Strong database encryption technology makes a database inoperable and inaccessible without a key (password). An algorithm encodes the information contained in your database and transaction log files so they cannot be deciphered.
For strongly encrypted databases, be sure to store a copy of the key in a safe location. If you lose the encryption key there is no way to access the data, even with the assistance of technical support. The database must be discarded and you must create a new database.
