Ron Sacks, CEO, Alpha 3 Cloud, said:

"Customers can now leverage the economics of the cloud for applications and workloads that contain highly sensitive data. Up until now customers could protect their data at rest and data in-motion, but not their data in-use. Nor could they share data outside their organization to accelerate the value of Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence and Federated Learning. They can now. We look forward to partnering with customers to provide them with cloud-based Confidential Computing solutions that will protect their most sensitive data."
