As part of Information Bank activities in Japan, Digital Garage is building a personal data service for Japanese consumers that provides secure storage and gives users privacy controls over their confidential data such as financial information, health records, and more. We chose Fortanix running on Microsoft Azure confidential computing infrastructure to provide end-to-end encryption across our users’ data while in storage, in transit over the network, and while in use so that we can ensure that each user’s data is accessible only when they are viewing it in Japan.
Getting start using confidential computing requires the integration of multiple infrastructure components, rewriting applications and manually configuring and verifying applications running in enclaves.
Fortanix is the only turnkey solution that manages the entire confidential computing environment and enclave lifecycle.
To get an application running in a secure enclave, developers must rewrite applications using open-source SDKs. This take time and often discourages the use of confidential computing.
Fortanix makes it possible to enable existing applications, enclave-native applications, and pre-packaged application to run in a secure enclave in minutes. This capability in unique and enables widespread adoption of confidential computing with no development or integration costs.
To securely implement confidential computing, critical services are required for authentication, encryption, attestation, and audit to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of data, code, and applications. These services are not built-into the infrastructure.
Fortanix manages and enforces security policies including identity verification, data access control, and attestation to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of data, code, and applications. Using these policies, businesses can implement geo-fencing, and compute affinity to support data regulation policies such as GDPR. Fortanix also provides audit logs to easily verify compliance requirements.
Fortanix offers the most complete solution for confidential computing providing customers the fastest and easiest path to protect their applications and data.
