Our Mission

INTERTRUST PROVIDES TECHNOLOGIES THAT PROTECT THE FLOW OF INFORMATION AS IT WAS INTENDED BY THE OWNER OF THAT INFORMATION, AND TO BENEFIT AN OPEN SOCIETY.

A new reality is emerging as we adjust to the world where sensors on everything from phones to eyeglasses to cars or medical devices track every movement, every blink of the eye, every heartbeat and location. All this collected data can help us live longer, be healthier, be more educated about our likes and dislikes and be better connected and entertained, yet significant technological and social issues exist around how this data should be properly handled. 

With technology moving faster than data privacy and data security regulation, and a very lucrative market for a user’s digital profile, all of our information becomes fair game to those who want to exploit it .  An exciting world waits ahead but there is much to do to allow people to conduct commerce and protect personal and societal interests.  Intertrust's years of research and development in trusted distributed computing, peer to peer and networked security and social computing are more important than ever.


History

Intertrust pioneered the field of trusted computing almost 25 years ago. Today, these inventions are fundamental to protect data privacy, data security, digital trust, and user control and rights at a time when vast amounts of data (a lot of it sensitive) is accessible to many people. Our unique solution puts the data owner in control of who sees the data and under what circumstances. Read our history to gain a better understanding of what makes our technology unique, and its not only because the founder was a sociologist-technologist.
