SQL Server is the least vulnerable database for six years in a row* protecting data at rest and in motion with advanced security features, with no performance loss.

Mobile BI

SQL Server enables mobile BI visual reporting, online and offline, on any device, at one-fifth of the cost of other self-service BI reporting solutions.
