■ “EAGLYS Co., Ltd.” promoting the use of corporate data assets Cyber security section = victory = Pitch title: “Data Security in the Era of AI & Data Portability” (Data Security and Data Portability in the AI Era) EAGLYS provides DataArmor (TM) (Data Armor), a secret calculation platform that processes data as it is encrypted, with the aim of promoting the use of data assets between companies and organizations. Until now, mainstream encryption technology requires decryption (decryption) during data processing, so there is a risk of information leakage, and there is a risk of data migration across corporate data assets and data linkage and sharing across enterprises and organizations. There was a difficult situation. DataArmor (TM) uses confidential computing technology that analyzes and processes data without decrypting (decrypting) the data, so companies can use confidential information to advance the processing process without accessing raw data. This makes it possible to facilitate the use of sensitive data in the cloud, such as management and operation. EAGLYS released a demo of SecureDB out of “Data base (Secure DB)”, “SQL (Secure SQL)” and “AI (Secure AI)” that DataArmor (TM) has as a module at this pitch, for high-speed processing of secret calculation It attracted great attention.

While at the same graduate school, he worked as a data scientist at the US Silicon Valley startup.
