Spiceware Conducts PoC with Operational Services, a Subsidiary of Telekom


Spiceware, a member of Born2Global Centre, has announced that the company is conducting PoC on PII ANP solution with Operational Services, a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom AG, the largest telecommunications provider in Europe.

Through this PoC, Spiceware will verify product performance and usability in accordance with European local standards to verify the pseudonymization standards required by the European Personal Information Protection Act (GDPR).

Spiceware’s PII ANP solution can identify and classify important data automatically, which allows businesses to utilize big data within GDPR compliance by anonymization and pseudonymization of PII. The solution can classify the data according to the nature, type, and purpose of use of personal information, and details necessary for data conversion. It also provides alias processing and combined key generation and management functions for combining personal information between companies.

PII is becoming increasingly regulated by government policies. However, Spiceware complies with the local PII rules and European GDPR, one of the world’s strictest security enforcements. Companies using the PII ANP solution will be guaranteed ongoing confidentiality, integrity, availability, and resilience of processing systems and services. It also has the ability to restore the availability and access to personal data in a timely manner in the event of a physical or technical incident. To ensure the security of the processing, effectiveness of technical and organizational measures can be regularly tested, assessed, and evaluated.

Operational Services, a joint venture of Fraport and T-Systems, is a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom, one of the world’s leading integrated telecommunications companies with more than 242 million mobile customers, 27 million fixed-network lines, and 22 million broadband lines in 50 countries. Sebastian Walden, Head of Linux and AIX Services at Operational Services is confident that the PoC will bring new business opportunities for the company, “Through cooperation with Spiceware, their PII ANP solution will allow Operational Services to open new business opportunities and accelerate our business innovation goals as a part of management service for our clients.”

After the competition of the PoC, the two companies will build a cloud anonymization service that can be used by big data companies necessary for GDPR compliance in Europe.
