The application needs access to the database, so the password has to be located somewhere on the disk. Since you have access to the security policy of your company, is there a place where they recommend storing the password? Besides, some DBMS (PostgreSQL for instance) allows OS-user-authenticated connections. It means if an application runs as the user "confluence", then it has access to the "confluence" database on the same machine. Is that the kind of feature that would make you satisfied?
