Among the most valuable assets of an organization is data. Over 90% of data produced in the world today remains locked up in data silos due to concerns about privacy. Enter the COVA Unity platform. The COVA Unity platform integrates with existing databases seamlessly, only requiring a specific form of encryption and an open network connection.
Once the database is encrypted and connected, a programmatic data usage policy needs to be created to express access rules. Complex access rules can be expressed programmatically. As a starting example, a statistics-only policy can be created such that user-level information are censored while high level statistics are allowed to be extracted.
Requests from 3rd party users are automatically checked against the specified data usage policy before they are allowed access. With the COVA platform, enterprise data are maximally freed from their confinement, all without compromising user data privacy.
COVA’s team comes from Harvard, Princeton, University of Munich, Heidelberg University, Peking University, Google, Linkedin, Citadel, Linux and Thumbtack. COVA is headquartered in Singapore, with satellite offices in San Francisco and Germany.
