• Empowering People with Privacy and Personalization

    WebShield, Inc.

  • About Us

    WebShield is a data sharing company for sensitive private data.


    We enable organizations and individuals that don't agree on policies or trust each other to anonymize, secure, combine, analyze, reuse and monetize sensitive private data, in real-time and at a global scale, while simultaneously complying with all necessary regulatory, licensing privacy and security requirements.


    This will empower individuals to conveniently find, access and securely share information about them or that they are authorized to use, to directly control policies for privacy, security, personalization, while at the same time putting an end to identity theft and cyber security breaches.

  • The Problem

    Traditional enterprise centric security and policy enforcement creates an inherent conflict between privacy, personalization, and sharing

    No way for companies and systems to agree when they are talking about the same person

    (For online users, for records about them, and their devices and relationships)

    No way to enforce polices or enable personalization without undermining privacy

    (Enterprises control the "keys" to data, must understand context and monitor activities to enforce policies)

    No robust/legally compliant way to aggregate data into comprehensive profiles for population scale analytics

    (Neither de-identification nor consent can be safely relied upon to satisfy regulatory compliance)

    No way to get disparate stake holders to trust each other with sensitive resources

    (Can't agree on policies, regulatory requirements, commercial terms, or who is in control)

    No way to link, analyze or use data without decrypting it somewhere

    (Who is trusted with the keys for everyone's data?)

    The Result

    Fragmented islands of data and functionality, ineffective personalization, systemic lack of privacy and consumer control, identity theft, and periodic cybersecurity breaches.

  • Enabling Innovation, "Quantum Privacy"

    A metaphor for a new paradigm for privacy and personalization.

    Obfuscate data

    Obfuscate data so that it is simultaneously Fully opaque meaningless gibberish and Fully computable with no loss of information.

    Any trust criteria can be linked to any resource

    Any trust criteria (regulatory compliance, payment and licensing, quality, privacy, etc) can be linked to any resource (data, apps, algorithms, digital content, etc) and be automatically inherited by any derived output.

    Simultaneously enforce all trust criteria of all stakeholders

    Simultaneously enforce all trust criteria of all stakeholders at the finest possible level of granularity before any meaningful data is revealed to anyone

    Easily deployed and future proof

    Easily deployed with re-usable cloud based adapters with no application modification required, automatically make use of new ways to obfuscate data or trust criteria
