Silence Laboratories will help large companies to leverage their customers’ data to provide ever-better AI-enhanced experiences.

Enable businesses to fully embrace the power of AI

According to Silence Laboratories CEO and founder Dr. Jay Prakash: “With this new injection of funds, Silence Laboratories is poised to redefine privacy by enabling businesses to fully embrace the power of AI while rigorously protecting their most vital asset – customer trust. Our privacy-enhancing technologies assure that collaboration and innovation can flourish in an environment where the confidentiality and integrity of data are uncompromised.”

Leveraging modern cryptography, the company already has one of the fastest distributed signature (authorization) libraries in production (Silent Shard), which has been audited by some of the best security auditing companies like Trail of Bits. These libraries have led to the establishment of strong partnerships with leading digital asset infrastructure and protocol companies like BitGo, MetaMask, EigenLayer, Biconomy, and EasyCrypto.

Limit the risk of exposing sensitive private keys

Products on offer by the company include Silent Shard which allows enterprises and users to limit the risk of exposing sensitive private keys and allows advanced authorisation rules to be put in place. Additionally, the newly launched Silent Compute product allows different organisations to collaborate on processing information without needing to expose their secrets and data to third parties and enrich insights while maintaining compliance and trust. Both the products uses multi-party computation (MPC) as its core cryptographic primitives.

With the market for privacy-enhancing technologies (PETs) growing globally at a compound annual growth rate of 26.6%, there is growing demand for Silence Laboratories offering to provide mathematical guarantees for techno-legal expectations. This would allow companies to work together on processing data, without needing to share data with the other party – allowing more sectors to benefit from new technology, with less risk.

Secure data collaboration

Shubham Sandeep, Managing Director at Pi Ventures, commented: “Secure data collaboration to enable privacy preserving compute is an ever growing problem especially in highly regulated domains such as finance and healthcare. This requires solutions based on zero trust cryptographic guarantees instead of relying on third party data vendors who are prone to security breaches. The MPC infrastructure developed by the world class team at Silence Laboratories is the fastest in the world, easily configurable, application agnostic and provides full control to the user. We are excited to double down on our investment as we have seen the fantastic progress of the company over the last 18 months.”

The funding will be used to scale the company’s tech & business teams and enrich the company’s robust R&D pipeline. Founded in 2021 by Dr. Jay Prakash (CEO), Dr. Andrei Bytes (CTO) and Dr. Tony Quek; the firm has also recently been expanding its global leadership team across cryptography, infrastructure business and engineering.
