USEncryption created pioneering encryption methods and tools to process encrypted data, enabling the sharing and full utility of confidential data with privacy and security.
USEncryption solves a security gap for Data in Use. Its innovative solution allows data owners to share and monetize their valuable confidential data through a new secure Encrypted Data as a Service model (EDaaS), keeping full control and ownership of their data and never exposing it unencrypted.
We aim to accelerate data migration to the cloud and unleash tremendous opportunity to share and utilize encrypted data for machine learning, medical research and more.

About our company
USEncryption solves a long-lasting security problem for Data in Use, allowing Data Owners to encrypt their confidential data and process that encrypted data without constraints or having to decrypt it first. This innovative technology enables the sharing and utilization of valuable confidential data (e.g. medical records, genome data, financial information, etc.) through a new secure Encrypted Data as a Service model (EDaaS) where Data Owners keep full control and ownership of their data, never exposing it unencrypted. Our USEncrypt solution has the potential to accelerate data migration to the cloud and unleash tremendous opportunity to share and utilize confidential data for machine learning, medical research and much more.
Encryption is the main defense to secure all types of data:
Data at RestData in TransitData in Use
But only Data at Rest and Data in Transit can be easily encrypted.
Encryption for Data in Use can still be a gap in data security.
NEED: ENCRYPTED DATA IN USE
Keep confidential data encrypted and secure at all times -- even while processing it on premises or on the cloud
Avoid any exposure or potential breaches of the actual unencrypted data, complying with the strictest of regulations
Enhance data security and trust the cloud for highly confidential data
SOLUTION: USENCRYPT® LIBRARY
Use reversible computing to obfuscate a combination of bare functions and encryption/decryption operators.
Build encrypted functions once, then operate as many times as desired with a modular library that can:
Operate on encrypted data, or combine encrypted and unencrypted data in a secure wayScale to process big data on the cloud benefiting from cost and performance efficienciesServe as a building block to be used with other libraries
Sharing of genome data for research purposes without ever compromising privacy or exposing the unencrypted data
Benefits include the development of new drugs and treatments to prevent or cure harmful illnesses
USEncryption can build trust by keeping genome data encrypted at all times, unlocking large potential for medical discoveries
USEncryption Awarded Competitive Grant from the National Science Foundation
Goal to keep data encrypted – private and secure – even while in use
Orlando, FL, 15 October, 2019 – USEncryption has been awarded a National Science Foundation (NSF) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant to conduct research and development (R&D) work on Enabling Computation on Encrypted Data on the Cloud and Beyond. This patent-pending solution was born from the research work of Professor Eduardo Mucciolo, of the University of Central Florida, and Professor Claudio Chamon, of Boston University, in the areas of quantum information processing and quantum computing.
USEncryption solves a long-lasting security problem for Data in Use, allowing Data Owners to encrypt their confidential data and process that encrypted data without constraints or having to decrypt it first. This innovative technology enables the sharing and monetization of valuable confidential data (e.g. medical records, genome data, financial information, etc.) through a new secure Encrypted Data as a Service model (EDaaS) where Data Owners keep full control and ownership of their data, never exposing it unencrypted.
“NSF is proud to support the technology of the future by thinking beyond incremental developments and funding the most creative, impactful ideas across all markets and areas of science and engineering,” said Andrea Belz, Division Director of the Division of Industrial Innovation and Partnerships at NSF. “With the support of our research funds, any deep technology startup or small business can guide basic science into meaningful solutions that address tremendous needs.”
“Data is the most valuable resource in the world today and needs to be protected through encryption at all times; we are filling the last gap in data security for Data in Use, which can accelerate data migration to the cloud and unleash tremendous opportunity to share and monetize confidential data with privacy and security for machine learning, medical research and so much more,” said Leandro Veltri, Co-Founder and CEO of USEncryption, “We are very proud to participate in the NSF SBIR program to further enhance our scientific method and take it to market.”
Once a small business is awarded a Phase I SBIR/STTR grant (up to $225,000), it becomes eligible to apply for a Phase II grant (up to $750,000). Small businesses with Phase II grants are eligible to receive up to $500,000 in additional matching funds with qualifying third-party investment or sales.
NSF accepts Phase I proposals from small businesses year-round. Small businesses with innovative science and technology solutions, and commercial potential are encouraged to apply. All proposals submitted to the NSF SBIR/STTR program, also known as America’s Seed Fund powered by NSF, undergo a rigorous merit-based review process to select roughly 1 in 10 applicants.
