Windmill Enterprise, developer of the Cognida platform, today announced a partnership with leading decentralized mobile security solutions provider Rivetz. Cognida will leverage the Rivetz technology to provide the Cognida enterprise customer additional options for securing their private keys utilizing Rivetz’s access to the Trusted Execution Environment (“TEE”) private “vault” inside the hardware in millions of mobile devices.
Cybersecurity Ventures anticipates that cybersecurity damages will total more than $6 trillion globally, up from $3 trillion in 2015. By leveraging the Cognida network, Rivetz will offer its customers more secure and seamless access to blockchain agnostic security tools. By adding Rivetz to its growing list of partners, the Cognida Network further showcases its focus on providing blockchain agnostic solutions for the enterprise.

“Enterprises face the daunting challenge authenticating thousands of users in a plethora of environments and granting them the appropriate access to information,” said Steven Sprague, CEO of Rivetz. “By joining forces with Windmill, we offer enterprises an easy-to-use solution that leverages the powerful cybersecurity capabilities of both TEE and the blockchain.”
Rivetz supports advanced security capabilities that provide owners with account-enhanced protection, assuring integrity of messaging and applications. Their technology provides verifiable security controls for blockchain transactions. The Rivetz solution leverages technology that is already built in to hundreds of millions of mobile devices to assure the keys and transactions cannot be altered or stolen by malware infecting the operating system.
