Secure and decentralised storage of personal and confidential data with Solid
The Solid concept, coined by Sir Tim Berners-Lee, whose ideas helped found the World Wide Web, stems from his concerns regarding consumer data hoarded by companies, over which consumers no longer have any control. These data are stuck in silos, which means they cannot flow and collaborate.
Solid is defining a set of specifications for standards to ensure that people and businesses can keep their data secure and decentralised in a Solid Pod (Personal Online Datastore).
This vault technology has several advantages:
- Security: personal and confidential data are encrypted and stored in a personal data vault.
- Control: consumers have control over their own data vault and the data it contains: they decide which data they share with which companies, governments or organisations and for how long.
- Ease of use: both consumers and companies save time and money by being able to share reliable data more efficiently, in line with 'privacy-by-design'.
- Reliability: our company is a reliable partner that ensures sound management and operation of the data vault platform with legal guarantees ensuring that consumers and businesses retain control of personal and confidential data and security.
