I did encrypt all of those datafiles. All the datafiles are encrypted. For us CPU went up about 10%. It is a 12.2 database.

We have encrypted almost all the datafiles of the database, post that the performance of the database degraded to almost 40-50%

Could anyone suggest what is the other alternative method that we can use in order to secure data with bit performance impact.
