Telefonica teams up with Rivetz and PeerStream for Blockchain-powered cybersecurity

Friday 15 March 2019 | 09:25 CET | News
Telefonica’s cybersecurity unit ElevenPaths and mobile security provider Rivetz have announced that blockchain technologies specialist PeerStream has joined their partnership to offer next-generation zero trust architecture, privacy and security protection for business applications and communications. PeerStream is developing enterprise-grade communications software focusing on enhanced privacy and security, which it is planning to bring to market under the Backchannel brand. The aim is to offer a suite of software tools to power secure, real-time data and messaging channels, including streaming video, using decentralised network routing technology which may operate on either blockchain or traditional distributed architectures. 

Under the terms of the deal, the parties are planning to integrate Backchannel with the ‘Dual Roots of Trust’ advanced cybersecurity architecture developed by Rivetz and ElevenPaths. The integration is expected to further enhance authentication and identity security of the ‘Dual Roots of Trust’ platform for mobile consumers and enterprise end users across a variety of use cases, including payments, multimedia communication and video streaming.
