If you can't secure the connection, you might consider securing the content: encrypt (and then Base64Encode) your sensitive fields, and store them in the db encrypted.

Oracle can be configured to require encryption, for jdbc (and other) connections to the tns listener server (look it up in Oracle documentation; you add some lines to "network/admin/sqlnet.ora" files, on both client and server). I don't know about Microsoft.
