It’s almost time for IBM Think 2018, IBM’s flagship conference that highlights the latest and greatest in Cloud, Security, AI, and Blockchain technology, and Fortanix will be there showcasing our Runtime Encryption® solutions that leverage Intel® SGX and protect data-in-use in the IBM Cloud! This year’s conference will be held in Las Vegas from March 19 through March 22.

We’re very excited about the conference, which will be our first appearance at IBM Think since announcing our collaboration with IBM Cloud and Intel to bolster trust and security in the cloud.

Where to find more on Data-in-use protection in the cloud at IBM Think

Fortanix @ Intel Booth #540

Swing by the Intel booth #540, where we will be discussing and showcasing previews of protection of data-in-use in the IBM Cloud powered by Fortanix Runtime Encryption® and Intel® Software Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX).

Watch a brief 5-minute presentation to learn about innovations in cloud security that can help you securely adopt the cloud even for sensitive workloads and unlock new value for your data assets.

Watch Preview Demos

  • General Demo: Runtime Encryption® keeps data and applications completely protected, even while in use, from external threats and even from the root user.
  • Protected Microservices/Apps: Featuring protected apps that are available out of the box including MySQL Database, NGINX Web Server, a Build Server, and more.
  • Container-based Apps: Transparently secure your containerized apps without modification. Application developers working in an agile environment can integrate with their CI/CD process and deploy using Kubernetes.
  • Sensitive Workloads:
    1. Database/SaaS: Cloud-native sample web application with all three tiers (app, front-end, and back-end) secured using Runtime Encryption® to protect credit card transactions.
    2. Key Management: Fortanix DSM™ allows you to securely generate, store, and use cryptographic keys, certificates, and secrets.
    3. Analytics/AI: Sensitive private messages remain protected even when being processed by an application leveraging IBM Watson Personality Insights
    4. Blockchain: Securely deploy and execute an iExec DApp on decentralized nodes with a privacy token that remains completely protected

About iExec: iExec is the leader on Blockchain based decentralized cloud computing. iExec builds an ecosystem where entities (e.g., traditional cloud provider, research center or even individual people, etc...) can contribute and monetize their own computing resources in a secure way.
