Currently, Points Technology assists different data owners to share data and models without exposing raw data to each other.

Points Confidential Computing is based on Trusted Execution Environment and other encryption technologies.

This framework can manage multiple data sources both inside and outside the bank in an open banking scenario. Points Technology helps large financial institutions build data collaboration alliance and integrate multiple data sources such as tax, logistics, and more. The data usage log can be traced and audited, while the data and model resources are protected by encryption algorithm and secure computing environment in the whole process.
