all Implications of securing data in ram to achieve security?RAM

Someone told me that his company is storing all application data (at least the sensitive data I guess) in ramRAM for security. Their application runs for long periods of time, so data stays in memory for a long time.

How is this more secure if you keep the it in ramRAM, instead of disk? Is the ram memoryRAM harder to access/exploit, or is it just because it's volatile?
