Today, data is often encrypted at rest and in transit across the network, but not while in use in memory. The ability to protect data in use is limited in the currently existing computing infrastructure. Organizations that handle sensitive data need to alleviate threats that target the confidentiality and integrity of either the application or the data in system memory.
MADANA Core provides our customers with the technical capacity to secure applications and data during runtime by offering cutting-edge security and privacy features for developers and users of software. Rather than relying on software alone to manage access to resources on these devices, our solution provides security as part of a hardware platform. This is what we call a Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) – made possible through Intel SGX and Ice Lake technology.
Customer values/problems solved
- Enabling the creation of isolated environments where, even if the operating system (OS) is compromised, applications and data are protected during runtime by providing security as part of the hardware platform.
- Enabling companies to move further toward Cloud adoption. Where there previously existed security concerns prohibiting Cloud adoption – this is addressed fully by TEE technology.
- Ease of use, advanced monitoring and flexible management for runtime environments including built-in encryption and integrity protection
- Providing the necessary system support to run complex applications and programming language runtimes in-enclave without the need for modifications or reliance on the untrusted host.
- Intel SGX & Ice Lake
