Chinking the Armor in SQL
Microsoft’s last major overhaul of the security features of SQL Server
occurred in the 2005 edition. Those changes, which laid the foundation for what would become a much more secure server product, helped to support far more secure applications. Since then, every release has built upon those features to make SQL Server even more secure in the face of evolving threats and attacks, to secure it in new use cases, and to fix any additional problems found. SQL Server 2016 continues this trend, boasting new security features that ramp up protections for both your server and its data. Explore the more significant new features in SQL Server 2016 so that you understand how to put them to use to make your data more secure than ever
