Intertrust Modulus is a security and rights management layer that sits
on top of cloud computing services to derive value from sensor and
customer generated data. Using Modulus, companies can build data-driven
businesses around their data, within their companies and with their
partners and customers, with the comfort that risks are well managed.
Modulus works with any cloud platform providing neutral interoperability
between clouds and across enterprises.

“For years, enterprises have sought to leverage cloud-based data sets to
create value, only to be constrained by security concerns,” said Talal
G. Shamoon, Intertrust chief executive officer. “As cloud computing and
IoT systems make more data available for monetization, security and data
rights management have become critical to interoperability. Modulus
provides the necessary link that solves this problem.”

While Modulus users can build their own applications on the platform,
Intertrust also provides Modulus Native Application Frameworks™ for the
energy, healthcare, and retail/marketing verticals, with frameworks for
the automotive and smart home IoT coming soon. Modulus adopters can use
these frameworks and can add their own analytics, which Modulus will

Intertrust is working with German energy giant innogy
on three applications based on Modulus: to power its data-driven
business models for smart home IoT, to allow power grid data
interoperability, and to manage data sets from renewable energy

“Energy companies must embrace digital transformation and data-driven
business models, or face an existential crisis,” said Florian Kolb,
Managing Director innogy New Ventures. “As electron prices drop, we must
harness the digital events that electrons drive for enhanced revenue.
Modulus is a unique and powerful platform that allows us to protect and
manage our data while monetizing with our partners and customers.”

Modulus extends Intertrust’s product offerings in secure systems and
media digital rights management. Today, with the proliferation of
security threats and data breaches and rapidly evolving digital privacy
laws, Intertrust products are more critical than ever. Intertrust
Personagraph is a customer data platform built on Modulus that allows
monetization of customer data for marketing and advertising applications
with support for GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and user
privacy considerations. Its secure systems products for authentication
and software tamper resistance protect apps that can report trusted
first party data to Modulus and protect customer information and
sensitive information in any setting.
