How does ScaleArc use encryption?
By default, ScaleArc does not use encryption. Because ScaleArc is a complete database proxy / Layer 7 routing engine with support for database authentication offload (ScaleArc can authenticate a database connection before sending any traffic to the database servers), you can use it to create a database architecture that allows for extremely granular, application-specific, secure access to the databases.
ScaleArc has optional support for encryption from an application, encrypted mysql transactions, and SSL certified connections if an environment requires it.
Web UI login and database user passwords are encrypted.
