SUNNYVALE, CA., June 25, 2020 — Intertrust today announced Intertrust Platform™, a complete ecosystem of data security and rights management products built for the Internet of Things (IoT) era. With Intertrust Platform, businesses can securely manage high-volume, distributed datasets — regardless of location, format, or type — in order to build an entirely new generation of multi-party applications and services. Intertrust Platform is the culmination of three decades of pioneering R&D, combining Intertrust’s powerful Digital Rights Management engines, the elegant data management functions of Intertrust Modulus, and the highly-scalable Intertrust Seacert certificate authority.

“No enterprise is an island unto itself. Enterprises must collaborate with partners and competitors while conforming to commercial agreements and laws,” said Talal G. Shamoon, Intertrust’s chief executive officer. “Intertrust Platform provides data and device interoperability in the media, energy, automotive, and healthcare markets, and anywhere enterprises need to process data securely and trust the devices that report it. No other secure computing and digital rights management platform provides these features in one solution.” 

Intertrust Platform is the one-stop toolkit for data-driven business

To compete in today’s data-driven business environment, enterprises must securely manage their data ecosystems, which include an ever-increasing number of IoT devices and distributed datasets. They must also use these datasets to collaborate with partners, suppliers, customers, and even competitors. Intertrust Platform introduces rights management of distributed datasets, allowing enterprises to securely govern data distributed within and between enterprises. 

Intertrust Platform also provides key management, authentication, and authorization services in a protected processing environment for IoT and mobile devices. The combination of data governance and device-side security provides the ability to process sensitive data, build data-driven businesses and ensure the security of the data flowing from edge devices. Ultimately, Intertrust Platform allows its users to manage devices made by multiple vendors, manage datasets across clouds, and build secure interoperable distributed computing networks. 

Key benefits of Intertrust Platform include:

  • Unrivaled interoperability: Easily share datasets across organizations — regardless of location, data type, or format. Intertrust Platform can run on any cloud service — including AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, and on-premises data centers.
  • Industry-leading digital rights management: Manage data on your terms, using fine-grained, secure digital policy and rights management for access control and governance.
  • Persistent protection: Your data is always secure — even when interacting with analytics. Safely bring analytics to your data with our advanced governance and virtualization technology.
  • Protected processing and secure authentication of devices and apps delivered through highly-scalable managed PKI services and the world’s leading application security, code obfuscation, and cryptography technologies.
  • Chain of handling and control: Advanced authenticated auditing capabilities allow for event verification, construction of data value chains, and verification of inter-party transactions. 
  • Build the next generation of apps and services: From app stores to plug-in analytics to data marketplaces, Intertrust Platform enables you to build customizable services tailored to your industry.


Intertrust Platform is available as a customizable service that can be tailored to an organization’s needs, or as a series of ready to use products. At launch, Intertrust Platform includes 12 products. These include seven Platform Component products — technologies that comprise the Platform itself — and five Platform Application products — applications built on top of the Platform. The full list of Platform products follows.
