TEN Years of R&D and Innovation

Data is the world's most precious resource, but its value cannot be fully realized unless it is shared, combined, and processed with other data. Unfortunately, most data sharing, combining, and processing rely on non-scalable "assumed trust" models dependent on non-technologically enforced legal arrangements (e.g., consent, contracts, and treaties) that fail to satisfy increasingly strict data security privacy and compliance requirements. 

There are three stages of data: at rest, in-transit and in-use. The in-use data has the most value. However, it also has the most risk. While in-use, data is in one of four states: cleartext, anonymized, encrypted or Statutory Pseudonymised (as initially embodied in the EU GDPR and now embraced by over 35 jurisdictions - 27 EU member states, UK, Brazil, Japan, South Korea, California, Virginia, Colorado, Utah, Connecticut). Only Statutory Pseudonymised data can achieve the highest level of utility and protection at the same time, without any compromise.


Anonos' technology eliminates the conflict between data use and protection by providing Statutory Pseudonymisation. As a result, it enables companies to pursue valuable data uses and revenue opportunities without having to cut "corners" on data security, privacy or regulatory compliance. In today's uncertain times, companies must maximize the value of their assets – and data is or will soon become their most important asset.


Anonos' patented Data Embassy software improves the value and utility of data-driven initiatives by 16X or greater. Data Embassy does this by increasing the number of projects approved by legal/privacy by 4X or more and decreasing the time necessary to secure approval for each project by 75% or greater. This is achieved by embedding digitized versions of data protection policies that are pre-approved by the legal/privacy team into auditable context-specific data assets – called Variant Twins - that embody Statutory Pseudonymisation.

Anonos systems, methods and devices are protected by a portfolio of twenty-five (25) granted international patents (including, but not limited to: AUS 2018258656 (2021); US 11,030,341 (2021); CA 2,975,441 (2020); EU EP 3,063,691 (2020); US 10,572,684 (2020); CA 2,929,269 (2019); US 10,043,035 (2018); US 9,619,669 (2017); US 9,361,481 (2016); US 9,129,133 (2015); US 9,087,216 (2015); and US 9,087,215 (2015) plus 70+ patent assets.

Anonos' patented inventions uniquely enable organizations to enforce centralized controls on decentralized processing to maximize data utility while expanding opportunities to process, share and combine data to maximize value ethically.

Jules Polonetsky, CEO of the Future of Privacy Forum, said:

"Innovative uses of data open up opportunities for incredibly useful advances in healthcare, environment - just about every facet of human life - but also create real risks of a future 'Orwellian' world destructive to the welfare of a free and open society. Anonos shows there are smart technical and policy solutions that can ensure we gain the benefits of new data uses while avoiding the risks."
