Is anyone using this product? We have a need to encrypt one column in a table for compliance reasons. It looks like 9i or 10g TDE would do the job for us but we build applications at the highest release available which is 11g. The quandry is that in 11g this appears to now be a separately licensed product.

If anyone has any real world experience with ASO I would appreciate hearing about it. It sure seems like a lot of money to encrypt one column. On the other hand, one of our competitors had a laptop with unencrypted PII stolen and it ended up costing them millions so, it may actually be pretty cheap.

Thanks in advance.
