Rivetz, a developer of embedded, blockchain-based mobile security solutions, and Privus, a provider of privacy and security technology, today announced a partnership to bring hardware-level security to the Privus flagship solution, SecurLine.
SecurLine is a secure and transparent peer-to-peer communications encryption application for smartphones. The partnership will enable Privus to provide unmatched protection of private keys to significantly increase the app’s security posture by employing Rivetz’s toolkit to access the existing hardware security capabilities already built into millions of mobile devices.
“I’m very enthusiastic about our partnership with Rivetz as I believe we are an excellent fit. Rivetz is the leading provider of embedded protection of private keys in mobile environments, while SecurLine has become the go-to tool for those demanding bulletproof, verifiable security and privacy in their communications. This partnership also unlocks new levels of cooperation beyond SecurLine, to provide enhanced security for other projects such as the Privum Network, a community-focused, decentralized, global infrastructure that allows everyone, anywhere to access the Internet privately and securely at any time.”
Swiss-based Bit Armor AG, which trades under the Privus name, is a global reference in privacy and digital security, focused on government, institutional and corporate clients and high-net-worth individuals demanding the highest levels of digital security. Privus undertakes an independent audit of the full source code of the full range of its easy-to-use solutions, also open to reviewing by its clients. Their seasoned, multi-disciplinary team is dedicated to the design of best-in-class technology.
“Verifiable security is of the utmost importance when ensuring trust within a network. Rivetz and Privus are allied in our perspectives on privacy and security for any organization. Together, we are laying the groundwork for a more streamlined and protected communication worldwide.”
Rivetz’s security solutions hinge upon access to the Trusted Execution Environment (TEE), which is an isolated, measured computer environment separate from the operating system. By provisioning all digital transactions through the TEE, Rivetz assures that users’ private keys cannot be altered or stolen if the operating system were tampered with or infected by malware.
