SUNNYVALE, Calif. & ESSEN, Germany–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#IntertrustIntertrust
Technologies Corporation
, the world leader in trusted distributed
computing technologies, today announced that DigiKoo will deploy
Intertrust Modulus™ trusted data rights management platform. DigiKoo, a
wholly-owned subsidiary of German energy company innogy (ETR: IGY),
serves the biggest German distribution grid operator Westnetz, among
other customers. DigiKoo will use Modulus to create a secure, rights
managed data exchange for grid operators that provides efficient, clean
and up-to-date data for city planners and grid planners in a GDPR
(General Data Protection Regulation) and German regulation friendly way.

Founded in 2017, DigiKoo has built a modern web-based platform that
allows planners to rapidly access grid information from multiple
parties. Intertrust joins other DigiKoo specialist partners, including envelio,,
and topogrids,
to deliver trusted data services that allow grid planners and operators
to solve current and future challenges in Germany’s Energiewende
(energy transition) that includes the increased penetration of
renewables, storage, and the deployment of e-mobility infrastructure.
The challenge in the German grid business is to make data from multiple
sources available to their relevant market participants, for example,
distribution system operators (DSO), utilities, and municipalities.
Processing data in a trusted and reliable way that respects the numerous
consumer protection, data privacy and competition laws is vital.
DigiKoo’s tools use map-based GIS interfaces to help planners and
developers estimate loads and plan expansion measures in a broad variety
of areas.

“We selected Intertrust Modulus for DigiKoo because it meets our need to
provide a service that protects German consumers while allowing market
participants to cooperate where needed,” said Peter Mathis, DigiKoo’s
managing director. “Using Modulus, DigiKoo can grid data, securely
combine it with data from other sources, and make it available in a
secure rights-managed way that obeys governing laws and facilities data
access. Planning and permitting processes that took weeks now take only

Modulus provides the ability to manage diverse data sets under digital
data rights management that observes enterprise policies and data
management regulations.

“DigiKoo is a showcase example of how Modulus can help enterprises build
data-driven business models,” said Tim Schaaff, Intertrust’s chief
product officer. “Our platform securely intermediates between competing
and cooperating actors to provide convenience and time-to-market. Our
programmable data rights management system not only allows us to
implement existing data management regulations and apply them to the
data, but also adapt dynamically to new regulations and policies as they
become available.”
