A global pioneer

Partisia is a global pioneer in Multiparty Computation (MPC) and advanced cryptographic enforced privacy. Partisia has sold commercial-grade MPC software solutions since 2008 with an initial focus on secure high-stake auctions used for trading energy and spectrum licenses.

Today Partisia’s MPC solutions are the base for a range of services from key management, data activation and statistics as well as a variety of bespoke applications such as DeFi, Voting and E-cash. The commercial activities include spinouts such as Sepior which was recently acquired by Blockdaemon in 2022 and Partisia Blockchain Foundation, a Swiss foundation that governs and launches a public blockchain built by Partisia.

The story of Partisia is all about commercialising advanced cryptography addressing weak and single points of failure across digital infrastructures and applications.

We have created

More than 1050 research papers and 61 Apps, Platforms & protocols.

Our Vision

Establish a new standard for secure solutions that manage confidential data across users and platforms.

Our Strategy

Focusing on innovative privacy-preserving software products that simplify and enhance our customers’ use of confidential data. The nature of the delivered software aims at simplifying and supporting regulatory compliance on behalf of our customers.

Collaborating with business partners and investors with detailed industry and end user specific knowledge in achieving our goals.

Our Brand

Our brand “PARTISIA” is a contraction of the three Latin words PARTIo, fiduS, fiducIA.

To us, Partisia means “Distributed Trust” a common expression in the related literature. Although it may seem surprising that distributed trust can be more trustworthy, this is in fact the case.
