CipherMode is on a mission to make secure, private-by-default computation universally accessible. Enterprises and organizations use CipherMode to perform joint analysis without sharing their data to each other. We are a tight-knit team of leading cryptographers and engineers pushing the boundaries of secure multiparty computation, focused on making it both performant and developer-friendly. Our first product allows data scientists to effortlessly train and run their existing machine learning models on fully encrypted data without decrypting it first! Similar to how encryption-in-transit (SSL/TLS) enabled a world of eCommerce, CipherMode’s patented encryption-in-use will create a secure computation platform that is the backbone of the future.

We are well-funded and backed by leading investors and angels including Innovation Endeavors (Eric Schmidt’s fund), Pillar VC, Jeff Dean (head of Google AI, TensorFlow and MapReduce architect), Sergey Gorbunov (CEO of Axelar), and Jit Saxena (board member of DataRobot). Our advisory network includes two of the foremost researchers in cryptography in the world, Prof. Yehuda Lindell and Prof. Bryan Parno (Forbes’ 30- under-30 most influential scientists).

Join us, a team of technologists from Google, Microsoft, IBM, Amazon and DARPA who believe that access to data - the right data at the right time by the right software - is possible using advanced encryption that protects the data at all times while enabling arbitrary computation and maximum utilization.
