TCS partners with Intel® to integrate Intel® Software Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX) technology with the Quartz Blockchain solution, to further enhance the privacy and security of blockchain based ecosystems implemented using Quartz.

By integrating Intel® SGX technology, Quartz solutions now offer customers the ability to isolate sensitive business code, data and transactions requiring confidentiality within an "enclave" in an encrypted form, thereby protecting these from being accessed by unauthorized users.

Anand Pashupathy, General Manager, Security Solutions Engineering Division, Software and Services Group, Intel Corporation, said: "Intel processor technologies like Intel® SGX provide unique capabilities that can help improve the privacy, security, scalability and trust of blockchain networks. Tata Consultancy Services and their Quartz key management flow process utilize lntel 8 SGX to help corporations protect their assets and data when deploying blockchain solutions."

R Vivekanand, Vice President and Co-Head, Financial Solutions, TCS, said "Central to TCS' Business 4.0 framework is the use of technology to leverage ecosystems and to harness abundance. Quartz blockchain is a key enabler for this strategy. Even a single security incident can cause loss of trust and deter the adoption of blockchain. The integration of TCS Quartz with Intel® SGX strengthens security and helps in mitigating these concerns, so that customers can fully realize the potential offered by our blockchain solutions."
