At least Sybase and Informix datasources do not support encryption. Through a recent DHS requirement all sensitive data (including vulnerability scan data) shall be encrypted in transit. With IBM being a security product it is essential IBM Security software remains up to date on security requirements. Additionally the MS SQL JDBC driver self upload doesn't support the vendor driver but supports a jTDS driver that hasn't been supported in almost 10 years. IBM generally needs to do a better job at keeping their datasources up to date and enabling key security features such as encryption in transit.
Do not place IBM confidential, company confidential, or personal information into any field.
