Data Privacy and Security: A Look at Data at Rest, in Transit, and in Use

In the era of digital transformation, data privacy and security have become paramount. As data moves through different stages - at rest, in transit, and in use - it becomes vulnerable to various threats. This post will delve into these stages, the associated risks, and the methods used to mitigate these risks. We'll discuss each stage in two separate sections: privacy and security, to provide a clear understanding of the techniques involved.‍

Securing Model Sharing and Supply Chain: Addressing Entitlements for AI Models

Ensuring entitlements for AI models is crucial for model providers in the commercial space. The lack of secure entitlements poses risks such as unauthorized access, undocumented usage, and intellectual property infringement. Enkrypt AI provides license enforcement, MRM technologies, and transparent audit trails to help secure entitlements and track the model supply chain, fostering innovation and trust in the Enterprise AI ecosystem.


In today's hyper-competitive business landscape, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has emerged as a game-changer, revolutionizing industries across the board. Model providers invest heavily in developing proprietary AI models, pouring millions of dollars into research, resources, and expertise to stay ahead of the curve. However, a critical challenge arises when these invaluable models and their weights become susceptible to theft and unauthorized duplication. To compound matters, enterprise AI customers demand on-premises deployment for data security and privacy reasons. This puts model providers in a precarious position, where they must either forego lucrative enterprise sales or risk shipping models to customer data centers without sufficient safeguards on usage and license management.

The Challenge of Protecting Your Valuable AI Assets

Creating and refining an AI model is a laborious process that requires substantial investments in time, resources, and intellectual capital. As a model provider, safeguarding your proprietary AI models is paramount to secure your return on investment and maintain a competitive advantage. Unfortunately, the vulnerability of AI models to unauthorized access, copying, and theft presents a significant risk to your business and intellectual property.

Empowering Enterprises with On-Prem Deployment

In an era rife with data breaches and privacy concerns, enterprises are rightly demanding on-premises deployment of AI models. This deployment model enables organizations to retain control over their sensitive data, ensuring it remains within their secure premises. However, accommodating this enterprise requirement poses a dilemma for model providers. Shipping models to customer data centers without proper safeguards on usage and license management exposes your valuable assets to potential theft, misuse, or infringement.

Achieving the Perfect Balance: Security and Enterprise Sales

As a model provider, striking a balance between fulfilling enterprise demands for on-premises deployment and preserving the integrity of your proprietary AI models is crucial. The compromise between relinquishing enterprise sales, potentially losing significant business opportunities, and assuming the risk of shipping models without adequate safeguards is far from ideal for your organization.
