WHO ARE WE?

SEAL is a high security lab that provides a safe place to store confidential data.  Our main focus is providing secure access to confidential data for the purposes of research. 

A significant number of data sets from companies, governments, researchers, and community organizations could hold major insights, but contain personal information or intellectual property that should not be made public.   

SEAL acts as a trusted intermediary between data holders and research users, using state-of-the-art technology to provide security, while making authorized access from anywhere seamless.
