Data Embassy®

Data protection anywhere, with 100% accuracy
The Anonos Data Embassy platform is the only technology that eliminates the tradeoff between data protection and data utility. The patented software uniquely combines statutory pseudonymization, synthetic data and a number of other privacy-enhancing computation techniques to control who sees what, when, where and why before any data is accessible.

Streamlined approvals and workflows mean more data can be approved more quickly for more use cases with lower risk – and the highest level of compliance for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Schrems II and any other data privacy or security regulation.

With Data Embassy, you can power secure data processing in untrusted environments with cleartext accuracy and speed for faster insights to reach enterprise goals.

Benefits of Data Embassy
Benefits of Data Embassy
Anonos spent 10 years in the lab, researching and developing Data Embassy to prove that it’s possible to selectively reveal, access and use data with granularity and precision never achieved before. We’ve addressed the shortcomings of data privacy and security point solutions, so organizations can use sensitive information as part of their data-driven initiatives and still be compliant.

Data Embassy works by transforming source data into Variant Twins: non-identifiable yet 100% accurate data assets that can be used for specific, authorized purposes. Because multi-level data privacy and security controls are embedded into the data itself and technologically enforced, Variant Twins can travel anywhere and that includes crossing international borders. These are the benefits Data Embassy provides in moving from idea to desired outcome faster and with lower risk:
Continuous, full-spectrum data protection anywhere
Protect data sets for specific use cases from end to end, regardless of location according to your requirements for privacy and security.
Schrems II and GDPR compliance
Achieve Schrems II and GDPR compliance without disrupting the operation of your data supply chains, plus comply with any other relevant data privacy or security regulation.
Cleartext speed and utility
We guarantee 100% accuracy compared to cleartext at essentially the same processing speed for effective analytics, as well as artificial intelligence and machine learning efforts.
Improved collaboration for data teams
Friction is reduced between the teams that control data, use data and maintain data architecture to establish data value chains that yield results.
Greater efficiency and data governance
Data protection and access processes are automated with no-code programming, so legal/compliance subject-matter experts and data resources can be more focused and efficient.
Scalable and future-proof
Add more databases to power more use cases as desired, with software updates released as new data protection regulations are implemented across jurisdictions.
Data Embassy Capabilities
Data Embassy creates protected data sets at scale, picking up where perimeter/access controls and encryption stop. Utilizing statutorily pseudonymized data as much as possible significantly reduces the time unprotected cleartext is used, and our protected outputs combined with encryption enable breach-resistant processing. Data Embassy de-links data from direct and indirect identifiers and obscures relationships and correlations.

Technical controls are centralized and set at the data-element level, so they can be adjusted up or down easily, based on an organization’s local, regional or global privacy and security requirements as well as desired use. Protected data sets can only be relinked to source data with the addition of unique information held separately by the data controller. Data Embassy’s unique capabilities reduce data risks while increasing opportunities for lawful use:
Statutory pseudonymization
Statutory
pseudonymization
Data Embassy is the only software that uses this privacy-enhancing technique, as defined by the GDPR and recognized by 40+ global regulators and NGOs as the new de-facto standard.
Synthetic data
Synthetic
data
Data Embassy produces synthetic data ideal for testing and advanced analytics when combined with statutory pseudonymization, whereas synthetic data on its own doesn’t protect against identity disclosure.
Customizable risk-scoring profile
Customizable
risk-scoring profile
Customize the scoring of Data Embassy to fit your particular risk appetite, so you can quickly see where you’re taking risks versus where you’re adequately protected.
Centralized controls for decentralized processing
Centralized controls for decentralized processing
Data controls are digitized, technologically enforced and embedded centrally but travel with assets wherever they go, so they can be processed in or transferred environments outside your control.
Use-case, context-specific protected outputs
Use-case, context-specific protected outputs
Based on preconfigured controls, source data transforms into a statutorily pseudonymised data set, a Variant Twin, revealing only the level of detail necessary to achieve a specific purpose.
Privacy-impact assessment
Privacy-impact assessment
Using k-anonymity, each Variant Twin is analyzed for re-identification risk through linkage to other data sets, suppressing records that don’t meet the required k-anonymity threshold.
Controlled relinking
Controlled
relinking
Record-level pseudonyms support relinking to all source data, with controlled permissions and not just pseudonym reversal for aggressive protection without loss of accuracy or utility.
Flexible deployment and seamless integration
Flexible deployment and seamless integration
Data Embassy can be deployed on premises, in the cloud, or as a service, seamlessly integrating with current tech stacks via API.
Use Cases

Proof in the Data Pudding
With Data Embassy, a global pharmaceutical company reduced project approvals from more than four months to only four days, an estimated savings of $2 million per year and the potential to expand the value of their data assets by tens of millions. Data is also delivered with 100% accuracy relative to cleartext processing with only 70% accuracy, and the data can be shared both inside and outside the organization because privacy policies are technically enforced throughout the data ecosystem. These benefits mean accelerated product development and clinical trials.
Proof in the Data Pudding
A digital media company used Data Embassy to eliminate its 30-day data-retention limit, increasing the value of its data assets by 2X. For other use cases, the value of data increased by orders of magnitude. The total number of lawful commercial opportunities increased dramatically because of Data Embassy’s ability to unlock sensitive data that is vital to advanced analytics in compliance with privacy laws. New services were launched that otherwise would not have been possible due to internal risk and regulatory compliance concerns.
Proof in the Data Pudding
Sales revenue increased by millions for an automotive remarketer with additional growth potential because Data Embassy solved international data transfer issues related to hundreds of processing activities. Compliance with Schrems II enabled lawful data sharing with partners and other third parties because data is protected in use wherever it travels. The company’s data protection officer noted that the software “does what it says on the tin,” so it can remain part of the data supply chain.
