Platform architecture & security

Trust is crucial. Even if you have zero.

Your trust is of the utmost importance to us, even if your system policy is to have none. That's why we are certified to the highest standard and enable several configurations of our platform to meet your specific needs.

Bitfount - Federated Analytics and Machine Learning Platform

Our Zero-Trust Approach

Bitfount - Federated Analytics and Machine Learning Platform

Control access to data, your way

Bitfount supports the latest approaches to network security design, and follows standard protocols:

  • Authentication using OAuth or SAML.
  • Usage-based access management for granular access controls.
  • Zero-trust network designs.
  • VPN installation support for Pods for additional security

Keep data invisible to Bitfount

Bitfount is designed from the ground up so that no data or analysis is visible to us.

  • Processors of Data (Pods) live on your infrastructure.
  • Modelling Services live on your infrastructure.
  • End-to-end encryption between data custodians and data scientists.
  • Only metadata about tasks and configurations on the platform is shared with Bitfount.
