Trūata Delivers Next-Generation Data Protection and Analytics to Europe

Jaa

Trūata has been designed specifically to help organisations conduct analytics in full compliance with Europe’s upcoming privacy and data protection framework, the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Trūata will enable companies to meet the standards of data protection envisioned by the GDPR while continuing to innovate and deliver the services and experiences their customers demand.

Conceived by Mastercard, one of its founders, Trūata will provide a new standard in data hosting and anonymisation. Using proprietary processes, methodologies and intellectual property, its offerings will make it possible for organisations to analyse their data while complying with the privacy and data protection requirements of the GDPR.

IBM has been selected by Trūata to be its foundational partner for strategic technology and services that will include cloud, analytics and cognitive computing capabilities. A cornerstone of the collaboration will be to apply market leading anonymisation technologies from IBM's global Research teams.

Felix Marx will lead Trūata as CEO. An Austrian national, Mr. Marx brings more than two decades of experience in telecommunications, identity management and payments, most recently as executive vice president of services in Asia-Pacific for Mastercard. His previous roles include CEO and president of C-SAM, Inc., CEO of Identiv Group and CEO of SCM Microsystems.

Mr. Marx said: “Trūata is built on the long-standing demand for data, security and privacy. This demand will be catalysed by the arrival of the GDPR and other developments like 5G and the Internet of Things. The Trūata data trust, paired with data anonymisation and analytics, is a natural next step in the evolution of the data economy.”

Trūata’s innovative trust structure offers a new and unique solution that proactively safeguards privacy and engenders trust. Because of its governance structure, Trūata will operate independently of its beneficiaries and customers, thereby allowing it to maintain direct control over data hosting and analytics on behalf of its client companies.

In addition to being one of Trūata’s founders, Mastercard has signed on as one of its first customers, using the Trūata solution for data anonymisation and analytics.

“At Mastercard, data privacy and security are part of our stock in trade. Data and analytics are central to our business. For security. For business intelligence. For enabling personalized experiences and faster, more relevant service to our customers and their customers,” said Kevin Stanton, chief services officer, Mastercard. “We are proud that Trūata builds on a rock solid foundation of security, privacy, technology, trust and expertise. With true independence and advanced technologies, Trūata will be key to answering businesses’ biggest data questions.”

"Data is a powerful resource and companies have a clear responsibility to protect it. That is why we believe that GDPR represents a catalyst for digital transformation that will lead to enhanced data privacy, more efficient and integrated data processing, and the ability to gain deeper insights for enterprises as they meet these requirements," said Arvind Krishna, senior vice president Hybrid Cloud and director of IBM Research. "We are proud to partner with Trūata to offer our industry-leading technologies to help businesses extract greater value from their data, while maintaining its integrity and protecting the rights of individuals."

Prominent technologists and data protection experts have joined the Trūata board, including Professor Barry Smyth, Digital Chair of Computer Science at University College Dublin; Aoife Sexton, principal at Tech Law Services and co-founder and director at Frontier Privacy, a data protection services consultancy firm; and Kevin Butler, managing director of TMF Group Ireland.

“The explosion of data and advanced analytic technologies mean that businesses can deliver personalised experiences that make life easier, safer and more convenient. If we can’t, as technologists, enable businesses to continue to maximise the promise of data while protecting the rights of consumers, then we all stand to lose,” said Professor Smyth. “By placing boundaries between how data is stored, protected and used, Trūata can safeguard the benefits of data for modern businesses and consumers.”

“Under the GDPR, companies will have more responsibilities in terms of how they manage personal data of consumers,” said Ms. Sexton. “In my day job and now with Trūata, we see the disruption businesses can face if they don’t put these safeguards at the centre of their data strategies.”

Further details about Trūata, which will be based in Ireland, will be announced in the coming weeks.

The 2018 IDN World Report Findings Show Negative IDN Growth in 201725.9.2018 14:24Tiedote

The 2018 IDN World Report findings have been published to idnworldreport.eu. The major findings from the report are: As at December 2017, 7.5 million IDNs were registered, a drop of 14% since December 2016. A major factor in the reduction in global IDN numbers was a change of policy by the Vietnam ccTLD, which resulted in a loss of nearly 1 million .vn second level IDNs. Excluding the impact of .vn, the underlying trend is negative growth of -5%, distributed mainly across second level ccTLDs.

Distribution patterns of IDN registrations are different from those of traditional, ASCII domain names. IDN registrations are highest in Asia and Pacific region.

Brentwood Borough Council Stays Ahead of the Game with UniPrint/Azure Cloud Print Solution25.9.2018 12:18Tiedote

UniPrint.net announced today their successful secure cloud print deployment with Brentwood Borough Council in Essex, UK. In 2016, the Council released a report entitled “Vision for Brentwood, 2016-2019”.

This presented a multitude of challenges, but one of the biggest was printing. “We approached our common provider,” said Huggins. “But it became quite evident very quickly that they had no solution, and we were way ahead of the game with our concepts and what we were trying to d
