Homomorphic Encryption Methodology
While conventional encryption techniques protect data when it is stored or in transit, they fail to protect data when it is in use. The IXUP platform uses homomorphic encryption methodology to run in-depth analysis on multiple data sets without ever needing to decrypt them. IXUP has developed its Secure Data Environment using the Microsoft ‘Simple Encrypted Arithmetic Library (SEAL) and is powered by the Azure Cloud environment. There are already connectors to the AWS and Snowflake Cloud environments, amongst others.
With the convergence of big data and artificial intelligence taking place globally, IXUP is ideally placed to help organisations monetise their data assets with minimal risk. IXUP is ISO27001 certified, has a unique governance control protocol, as well as the UK Government developed the ‘Five Safes Framework’ specifically to address data custodian principles as prescribed by the Australian Bureau of Statistics and Stats NZ.
The target markets for IXUP platform include government, financial services and healthcare, which are deeply dependent on data and heavily regulated.
Encrypted data analytics made easy
Answer important research, business and policy questions by allowing data sets from different parties to be combined and analysed in a secure environment.
Preserve privacy while gaining data insights
To uncover richer insights, data are increasingly shared between and within organisations.
Traditionally this meant handing over sensitive data to a third party and/or decrypting data during the process. While slow and costly, the loss of control also exposes organisations to risks like data loss and misuse.
Designed to address these privacy and security concerns, IXUP keeps data safe by providing a platform where advanced analytics can happen on encrypted data.
Protect your data with post-quantum security
The IXUP Secure Data Engine uses a methodology called homomorphic encryption that enables analytics over data without ever needing to decrypt it. As encryption is at the cellular level your data is 100% encrypted at all times – so it is never seen, handed over, or vulnerable.
Conventional encryption techniques protect data only when it is stored and in transit, but they fail to protect data when it is in use.
Keep control of your data
With IXUP, data collaborators never see the underlying data, so personal information is always protected and stays compliant with privacy regulations.
Data encryption and decryption is performed exclusively client-side. You never hand over your data and you hold the encryption keys at all times; they never enter the IXUP platform.
Govern your data
While data on the IXUP platform remains encrypted at all times, we took this a step further by adopting a multi-dimensional approach to data security.
Using Five Safes, the Australian Government endorsed risk framework for data access, clients can assign the level of security control across five safes: people, projects, settings, data and outputs.
