According to my finding, it is heavily articulated in the Software Engineering Community that Security and Performance are normally traded. Where there is Security, Performance suffers, this is normally because of several encryption algorithms put in place. Companies with a high level of Security for their data structures tend to encrypt their data on the Disk level as well as at the Application layer not to mention over the Http/2 protocol. Sophisticated System Architecture tends to log every footprint as logs for evaluation, this normally results in round-trip calls to the back-end Systems. It all depends on what the focus should be, either Performance or Security. The use of CDN's to optimize performance is said to be a standard for modern Applications. Database Administrators should benchmark their API calls and come up with Solution to meet in the middle, for sure Security is not to be done away with.
