Even when using an application with the best security, the only way to keep data truly secure across the network is to ensure that your database middleware supports the latest security features. Kerberos authentication and SSL encryption are no longer cutting edge "nice-to-have" options. They are mandatory elements to any successful security strategy. Some drivers may not support these security features - others may only offer support from some platforms. Still other driver options may require additional layers of software which end up killing performance.
Progress DataDirect drivers support SSL and Kerberos from any platform without requiring database client libraries. And just as important, supporting these features through the driver takes just a few minutes - no additional application code required.
