SQL Backup encryption details

Hello Redgate,

what type of encryption is implemented when encryption is used inside the backup process besides the encryption strength 128 or 256 bit. Is it a blowfish encryption?
We need this for a ISO 27001 certification process.

    Hi Volker,

    Thank you for your forum post.

    SQL Backup uses AES encryption alogthrim to encrypt the backup file as part of the backup process.

    Many Thanks
