Cape’s encrypted learning platform allows companies to build more powerful machine learning models using encrypted data (without decryption), thereby never compromising privacy or confidentiality. Its unique formula of advanced cryptography and machine learning enables collaboration on data without ever seeing the data. Multiple parties can share and run machine learning models on encrypted data on the Cape platform. This happens through a secure multi-party computational process using secret sharing, which protects privacy by default.

Cape Privacy has seen growing demand from data science teams looking to improve their machine learning models both between departments and across organizations. Specifically for Financial Services, datasets not publicly available to others can provide a significant competitive edge. Cape’s encrypted learning technology is what makes this secure and trusted collaboration possible.

In addition to financial services, Cape Privacy’s technology has application across multiple sectors including health & life sciences, government, and retail/CPG to name a few.
