Ledger to Protect the Eris Platform Blockchain-Based Infrastructure.
Eris Industries believes the partnership between Ledger and its operations will be quite beneficial. The company feels that Ledger is a “technological leader” within the digital currency security sector and provides trusted hardware for both consumers and organizations. Just recently the wallet manufacturer established its operations in the B2B market with TEE (Trusted Execution Environment) and HSM (Hardware Security Module) solutions. Casey Kuhlman, CEO of Eris Industries is pleased with the cooperative union between the companies stating:
“Ledger is at the forefront of providing tools to secure blockchains and manage private keys.— Ledger’s BOLOS platform is a crucial security offering which fills a vital security gap in the blockchain ecosystem. We are therefore very pleased to be working with Ledger, and together we will provide our users with the most flexible, capable, and user-friendly application development tooling in the market today.”
Ledger is also excited about the businesses joining to produce breakthrough technology together. The hardware wallet service has confidence in the open source Eris Platform, which is an enterprise blockchain application development protocol. Eris Industries is used by 40 of the world’s largest financial institutions including PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC). The platform produced by Eris is also the only application available on both via Amazon Web Services Marketplace and Microsoft Azure. Eric Larchevêque, CEO of Ledger believes Eris Industries is a forerunner within this ecosystem and feels the partnership will be fruitful. Larchevêque explains:
“Eris Industries is a fast growing blockchain infrastructure provider for Fortune 500 customers. — We are looking forward to deploying our solutions to their infrastructure and bring a strong layer of security to the management of critical workflows and cryptographic primitives.”
The partnership to advance security within the Eris Platform environment is an objective Ledger will be taking seriously. Additionally, Eris fits right in with the team’s core foundations because it “empowers developers to embrace participatory software architecture.” Both companies believe the collaboration between the businesses will bring about significant innovation.
