A former organization I was with decided to encrypt entire tablespaces to meet a data-at-rest encryption security control. It is an additional licensed option with Enterprise Edition licensing, see faq: <>

Said that, the above also has a redaction feature to mask sensitive data.

My apologies in advance as I don’t have a broader context as to what other elements are at play in your organization.

The system is currently being rewritten but in the meantime, we are looking to see Oracle options for encryption. In your experiences how have you handled just one element encryption or one element in several locations?
