Does PME encrypt data?

Issue:
A customer would like to know if PME data is encrypted when stored within the SQL databases (at rest) or while being passed through web applications (in transit).

Product Line:
ION-E 6.0
SPM 7.0.1
PME 7.2.x
PME 8.x

Environment:
PME databases and web applications

Resolution:
Data is not encrypted when passed through the Web Applications, or within the database tables.  It is recommended to install TLS / SSL within Internet Information Services to encrypt Web Applications data while in transit, and to restrict SQL network access and credentials to prevent unauthorized requests.
