Fluree Announces Significant Momentum in Digital Trust and Privacy Collaboration, Strategic Partnerships and Developer Adoption, on the Path to Web3

Fluree | December 27, 2021

Fluree, provider of the Web3 data platform, today announced significant momentum as the technology of choice for privacy-preserving data ecosystems. Fluree’s immutable semantic graph database played a key role in a wide range of projects in 2021, including secure academic credentials for projects funded by the Department of Education, a tamper-proof and fair blockchain-backed election, and off-chain data storage for Cardano, the sixth-largest cryptocurrency in the world. “It’s inspiring to see the ways that developers are taking advantage of Fluree’s ability to deliver trust, semantic context and security to data projects,” said Fluree Co-CEO and Co-Founder Brian Platz. “Support for our platform is at an all-time high, driven by data-centric architecture that can power trusted, interoperable data ecosystems.” “Mainstream adoption of Web3 — the decentralized Internet of data — is on the horizon. As the rise of data ecosystems are met with privacy, trust and interoperability challenges, Fluree is uniquely poised to become the infrastructure of choice in the emerging Web3 market,” said Dan Malven, Managing Director at 4490 Ventures. Surge in Developer Adoption: 500% Growth in 2021 Fluree’s open source technology grew 500% in users in 2021, topping 100,000 total downloads to date as it becomes the technology of choice for privacy-preserving data ecosystems. Key use cases in verifiable credentials, education technology, enterprise knowledge graphs, and blockchain applications continue to emerge. Fluree’s recently overhauled developer portal and growing Slack community accommodates the influx in developer adoption, prioritizing the Fluree developer experience and community. Fluree’s rise in both developer adoption and strategic partners has been recognized, winning local awards such as Tech Tribune’s Best Tech Startup in Winston-Salem to being recognized as CRN’s Coolest Database System Company of 2021 as well as a winner of Business Intelligence Group’s Fortress Cyber Security Award. Digital Privacy and Verifiable Credentials for the Public Sector, Supporting Education and Health Care Improvements Verifiable credentials and decentralized identifiers have become a central theme in rising Fluree use cases across education ecosystems and healthcare. As the world begins to understand the value of privacy in digital ecosystems, organizations have chosen Fluree to power solutions that return ownership of information to consumers. Education Credentials: Two winning projects of the American Council of Education’s Blockchain Innovation Challenge, funded by the Department of Education, are using Fluree's technology to transform credentialing in academic ecosystems. The LifeLong Learner Project focuses on providing teachers with a wallet to store and present certifications as they move throughout their careers. The UnBlockED project is focused on creating an open transfer exchange that will empower college students by streamlining transfer credit recognition. In both projects, Fluree’s technology provides the foundation for the exchange of secure and interoperable verifiable credentials across owners, issuers, and third-party institutions. Key partners within these initiatives include the University of Arizona, the Gardner Institute, and Georgia Tech. Healthcare Credentials: Pulse Connect has partnered with Fluree to build verifiable credential solutions for patients and health providers. This will help support verification requirements around vaccine credentialing in view of increasing vaccine mandates. Strategic Partnerships: Supporting Cryptocurrency Advancements, Tamper-Proof Elections and Codifying Unstructured Data Much of Fluree’s 2021 momentum stems from Fluree’s growing partner ecosystem, which recently won the CRN’s “Channel Chiefs Award.” Examples of rising stars in Fluree’s Partner Ecosystem include: Building a Metadata Sidechain Solution for the Sixth Largest Cryptocurrency: The community supporting the high-ranking cryptocurrency blockchain platform Cardano selected Ikigai Technologies and Fluree to power Logosphere. The Logosphere project proposes Fluree as an "off-chain decentralized app (dApp) data storage solution" for the metadata related to Cardano transactions. Instead of placing data into siloed databases, Fluree will act as a secure and interoperable metadata layer for dApp developers. This will enable a new class of data-driven dApps, such as non-fungible token (NFT) exchanges, decentralized knowledge graphs, and other data-centric Web3 applications. Powering the World’s First End-to-End Blockchain Election: Marzex.tech technologies delivered a Fluree-powered digital voting platform for the International Islamic University of Malaysia. The digital platform used Fluree’s backend to successfully register identities, facilitate private voting, and thwart efforts to tamper with the election. Turning Text into Trusted, Interoperable Data: Fluree integrated with Lead Semantics to offer TextDistil, a natural language processing (NLP) pipeline for unstructured data. The integration will allow organizations to transform their text and other unstructured data into a rich set of queryable information, readily integrated into data fabrics and enterprise knowledge graphs. This is particularly valuable for the healthcare industry, which deals largely with unstructured data and has experienced an 878% increase in health data over the last five years. About Fluree Founded in 2016 by Brian Platz and Flip Filipowski, Fluree PBC is headquartered in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Fluree is pioneering a data-first technology approach with its data management platform.

Privacera Announces Most Complete Data Access Governance for Diverse Cloud Analytical Workloads

Privacera | May 13, 2022

Privacera, the unified data access governance leader founded by the creators of Apache Ranger™, today announced the release of Privacera Platform 6.3 and PrivaceraCloud 4.3, which offer complete data governance automation and expanded support across the cloud partner ecosystem. The new releases dramatically expand the Privacera Access Governance Platform's ability to secure a diverse and increasing number of data sources and analytical workloads offered by leading public and third-party cloud service providers, such as Google Cloud's BigQuery, Snowflake, AWS, and Starburst. "Privacera pioneered the industry's first SaaS-based data governance and security solution that integrates privacy and compliance across multiple cloud services. Our latest releases not only help organizations use data effectively and responsibly, but also accelerate digital transformation by helping organizations safely migrate data to the cloud, while minimizing compliance risk. By expanding the scope of our platforms, we're even better equipped to guide organizations along their data journeys." Privacera CEO Balaji Ganesan A key milestone with this new release is that Privacera now brings the industry's first comprehensive data access and security governance solution to Google BigQuery. BigQuery, Google's serverless data warehouse solution, is rapidly gaining popularity and with this release we provide fine grained access control and data masking capabilities, as well as the ability to discover and tag sensitive data to help manage data access to data stored and processed in BigQuery. Privacera has also enhanced access control by extending Attribute Based Access Control (ABAC) across all supported data and analytical sources. ABAC is a powerful approach to simplifying and automating data access governance, especially when combined with Privacera's Role Based Access Control (RBAC) and tag-based access control. Privacera's ABAC leverages user attributes, such as region, title, and department when creating data access policies, thus allowing data access based on those attributes. Integration with access management solutions, such as Okta, further automates the data access governance process. The new release also further expands support for Starburst Enterprise by adding encryption to accelerate and improve secure data sharing by automatically encrypting and decrypting data for authorized users or applications when they access it. As a result, data science and analytics teams can securely utilize more data, build and refine predictive and machine learning models, and increase their accuracy, utilizing the full array of features in their organization's data. "We partnered with Privacera two years ago to provide enterprises with centralized, secure access to data with end-to-end governance and compliance," said Starburst co-founder and CEO Justin Borgman. "In a world where data is fundamental to the success of every business, Privacera offers solutions to help move organizations into the future. We look forward to continuing our partnership for years to come." About Privacera Privacera's SaaS-based data security and governance platform enables analytics teams to access data without compromising compliance with regulations such as GDPR, CCPA, LGPD, and HIPAA. Privacera provides a single pane of glass for securing sensitive data across multiple cloud services such as AWS, Azure, Databricks, GCP, Starburst and Snowflake. Privacera's platform is utilized by Fortune 500 customers across finance, insurance, life sciences, retail, media, consumer industries and federal agencies/government to automate sensitive data discovery and easily manage high-fidelity policy management at petabyte scale on-prem and in the cloud. Headquartered in Fremont, California, Privacera was founded in 2016 by the creators of Apache Ranger™.
