I have an in-house developed application and  have to deploy to a client. My concern is i dont want certain tables to be touched by the programmers or administrator at the client but they are required by the application also. Client have the SQL Server "sa" account and its password.

   Is there a possiblity of protecting these tables through a password or some other means?

Thanks!

the proper way is using grant permissions to particular user.

I think it's not possible as administrator's may have rights to modify structures of the database and the same goes with the programmers. Unless if you take away table alter, drop and add rights then they may exercise only Data Manipulation Language commands into your database which is very limited.

You may try to disable database access from the programmers and administrators which is more likely possible than disabling table access.

Does this answer your question?

how many administrators could have access this. by the way it seems odd to restrict administrators doing their job.
