Preserve privacy and compliance while working with confidential data at all times.
Your business data is likely hosted and stored across hybrid multicloud environments, whether owned and managed by your organization or a third-party provider. This setup exposes that data to various risks and vulnerabilities.
To mitigate potential noncompliance or breaches, risk management and security leaders of most enterprises encrypt their business data. Indeed, extensive use of data encryption can help achieve zero trust and reduce the financial exposure for businesses.

While encryption allows data to be protected both during transit and at rest, the data typically must be decrypted while being accessed for computing and business-critical operations. Under these conditions, you're potentially violating the privacy of your confidential data.
What if you could unlock the value of your sensitive data without ever having to decrypt it?
Fully Homomorphic Encryption (FHE) allows you to take advantage of your valuable data previously unreachable due to the paradox of need-to-know versus need-to-share between data custodians and data users. With FHE, you can better enforce zero trust because the data is always encrypted and can be shared, even on untrusted domains in the cloud, while remaining unreadable by those doing the computation. In short, one can now do high-value analytics and data processing – by internal or external parties – without requiring that data to be exposed.
The good news is that IBM Security™ is bringing this innovation from IBM Research® to reality with new, first-of-its-kind security services to help you take the next step.
