I've been tasked with encrypting several years worth of sensitive data (don't ask) stored in a SQL Server 2000 Database. I need to encrypt both historical data and come up with a process to encrypt and decrypt new data as it flows through the system.
Most of the solutions out there seem to use extened stored procedures that call dlls that must be installed on the server.
The best I've seen so far is here, the tools are free but you have to register at the site.
Are there any better solutions out there?
