The challenge of protecting data in use is becoming more and more urgent as data leaks continue unabated. This urgent need is creating waves in the industry forcing key players to take action and initiatives that have already formed to make the move to confidential computing more achievable. 

One of these initiatives is the Confidential Computing Consortium a community project formed by the Linux Foundation. Founding members of the consortium include Alibaba Cloud, Google Cloud, IBM, Microsoft, and Tencent. Another one is Azure’s confidential computing solution, which hopes to protect data, while in use, in a public cloud. Google has already jumped in and created a designated strategy around confidential computing - its message is one of agnosticism. They offer an open-source framework, Asylo, that can be used not only on Google Cloud but other cloud environments too. Asylo is attempting to be agnostic to the hardware platform and the TEE, hoping this will allow the creation of apps that work within this environment.
