Guardtime's core expertise is the design and implementation of machines – distributed virtualized computers that execute tasks with cryptographic proofs of correctness. The value of such machines is twofold; a) the operational cost savings achieved from security, audit and compliance being encoded into the design and  b) new business models by enabling the automation of processes across organizational boundaries.

All our products are based on the same underlying technology platform, enabling us to go from idea to production in a matter of months. If a client has a business process that involves electronic data, whether updating an internal database or creating an industry wide platform our technology can deliver value and differentiation in a very short time frame. 

We have built and deployed many products across many industries, some of which we have listed below.

MIDA Cybersecurity

See product page here

Our flagship product MIDA, built in collaboration with global telecommunications provider Verizon, is a new approach to security where every digital asset (firewall rules, configs, virtual machine images etc.) is matched with a cryptographic container which provides the integrity,  provenance and policy information for that asset. Any change in that asset that is outside of policy can be detected with cryptographic certainty and mitigated in real time. In comparison the traditional approach of downloading events and running those events through a correlation analysis engine is expensive, unreliable and slow, especially for remote infrastructures such as cloud and IOT.

One major benefit of the product is that it pays for itself due to the cost savings delivered by automated compliance management and reporting. The product offers templates based on existing standards, whether PCI DSS, SOC2, FEDRAMP etc. and provides continuous real time compliance reporting based on those templates, along with independently verifiable artifacts for reporting purposes to auditors, dramatically reducing  manual compliance overhead.

HSX - Life Sciences 

For more information see

Our HSX platform was designed and built for the Estonian Health Care system, providing immutable audit trails for activity related to patient health care records. The platform is based around APIs for integrity, provenance, consent, identity reconciliation, secure transport and multi-party computation.

In 2020 we announced a partnership with Roche and 10 other pharma companies to build a Real World Data Engine based on this platform, enabling pharma market access to get aggregate results of medicine use across a region without moving patient data from the databases that host the data – we call this concept data visibility, analyzing distributed data sets with guaranteed compliance with all privacy regulations. HSX enables this to work at scale with the performance necessary for practical use cases, including indication and combination-based pricing, value based pricing, clinical trial patient enrollment and differentiated rebates.

SCM - Supply Chain 

See product page here

Our SCM platform provides supply chain solutions for security, track and trace, diversion and recall management, counterfeit detection and post-sale monitoring (pharmacovigilance) for industries including aerospace, life sciences, manufacturing and consumer goods. Our supply chain solutions are used by some of the largest aerospace companies in the world to ensure end to end security for their physical, information and software supply chains.

Coliseum - Cyber Resiliency Training and Services

Coliseum is a highly automated and scalable cyber range platform and a portfolio of accompanying services to help government and private sector clients increase their preparedness against cyber threats and to achieve cyber resilience through highly specialized training, exercises and evaluations.

Guardtime won the contract in 2017 for the design of the next generation NATO cyber range - home of the largest cyber exercise in the world, NATO's Locked Shields - and offers automated exercises for enterprise clients to access on a subscription basis, delivering a range of exercises from simple scripted attacks to highly complex scenarios.

KSI Cash - Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC)

See announcement here

Our first conversations about building a digital cash system with Central Banks started in the early 2000s. Although there was no clear market opportunity then, we continued to do fundamental research. Over the last 5 years our research efforts intensified, leading to the invention of KSICash, a full stack infrastructure for CBDC built on KSI Blockchain.

In October 2020 we announced our partnership with the Estonian Central Bank to research the suitability of our KSICash CBDC for use within the Eurosystem.

CERTUS - eGovernment
