About Anonos

Protecting data in use for greater utility, not drama
We’re not going to bore you with what you already know – like how big data has only gotten bigger and continues to grow exponentially, blah, blah, blah. Nor are we going to tell you how important data is and all the cool stuff your organization can do with it. Duh. The fact you’re here, says you take data privacy and security seriously. We do too.
That’s why we’re going to cut to the chase and tell you that we make otherwise restricted data accessible and safe for use – even in untrusted environments. That’s because we resolve the long-standing tradeoff between data protection and data utility that organizations across industry have faced.
So our mission and brand promise are one in the same
Data without the drama™
No internal conflicts between data protection officers and data users, no grumbling among your SMEs and IT leaders about more complexity, and no fines or PR fallout for noncompliance with data privacy and security regulations. Plus we can only imagine how frustrating it has probably been, listening to all the pitches and promises of other software vendors all these years.
Anonos will help you make your data teams more effective and efficient by powering the uninterrupted, predictable supply of protected data assets your organization needs to create more commercial or civic value. Now you can remove your barriers to being data-driven and fill in the gaps left by traditional data privacy and security solutions.
Our Vision
To de-risk data without de-valuing it, so enterprises can use it more widely and effectively to accomplish their strategic objectives.
Our Values
These are the values we believe in and how we like to do business:
We move quickly to accomplish our goals and respond to employee, partner and customer needs.
We represent ourselves and the company with transparency and integrity.
We love ideas and appreciate input from each other, partners and – most of all – customers.
We like to question assumptions and learn continuously.
We have high standards for our team members and our solutions and services.
Our History
Anonos co-founders, Gary LaFever and Ted Myerson, have been business partners for more than two decades. Their previous company, FTEN, gave securities broker-dealers and their clients the ability to manage risk more effectively in real time, leading to better use of capital as well as improved regulatory compliance. FTEN was acquired in 2010 by NASDAQ OMX, which integrated the company’s technology into its 100+ exchanges around the globe.

That successful venture in re-linking data paved the way for Anonos to resolve the conflict between data protection and data utility by de-linking data.
We’ve spent 10 years on research and development, and now hold 26 international patents with an additional 70+ patent assets for the unique and proven combination of data protection techniques we deliver, including statutory pseudonymization and synthetic data.

Our intellectual property, data analytics expertise, acumen in global data privacy and security law, and our relationships with international regulators and NGOs have led us to the exciting point of bringing to market a solution that will transform data management.
Our Solution
Enterprises haven’t been able to use their data to fullest advantage because of data privacy and security restrictions, as well as insufficient protection measures. The basis for our technology is dynamic data controls at a granular level to ensure high-utility, decentralized data processing combined with the ability to fine tune those controls. Direct and indirect identifiers are de-linked from the source data to precisely control what is revealed or concealed in compliance with applicable data privacy and security regulations.

The Anonos Data Embassy platform, with configurable rules and streamlined, self-service workflows and approvals, creates Variant Twins: source data that has been transformed into new, statutorily pseudonymized and 100% accurate data assets authorized for specific use cases.

Because Variant Twins are embedded with multi-level data privacy and security controls that are technologically enforced, they can travel anywhere – across departments, outside the enterprise, or around the globe.

Controlled relinking to the original data accelerates speed to insights for innovation, competitive differentiation and operational efficiency among other benefits, based on your organizational objectives. But that process can only occur with the addition of other data held separately by the data controller or an authorized party.
Our Solution
Anonos works at the intersection of law and technology to develop solutions that transform industry. Right now, that means helping enterprises use more of their data while preserving privacy and security and without sacrificing accuracy or speed. We’d love to talk with you about how Data Embassy with Variant Twins can do just that.
