Rivetz, Agrello to build digital identity hardware-based solutions

Estonian decentralized mobile security solutions provider Rivetz is partnering with Agrello to develop a hardware-based cybersecurity solution for digital identities. This collaboration will create self-sovereign identities that are protected by hardware, offering simpler and safer solutions for users online.

This proprietary cybersecurity mechanism will help users navigate and engage with protections and assurances that are delivered by blockchain technology and trusted computing. Using Rivetz’ innovation, the Agrello ID application can bypass a user’s phone operating system and possible malware installed on it, providing absolute protection from identity theft, data breaches, and most cyber-attack vectors.

“In cooperation with Rivetz, we can take our ID system to the highest level of security assurance, providing the uppermost form of protection available today,” said Agrello CEO Hando Rand. “This will allow us to expand our client base to new enterprise customers with higher levels of risk in their operations.”

“Agrello provides state-of-the-art identity services that meet the needs of modern users,” said Rivetz CEO Steven Sprague. “We are very pleased to work with them to deliver a new token-powered model for identity and security, enhancing the security and simplicity required by the market.”

Agrello offers blockchain-based legal technology and digital identity services, including cryptographically secure digital identities that users employ to identify themselves anywhere online. The Agrello ID service can be used to sign contracts or complete KYC processes in seconds. Rivetz provides built-in protection of access credentials both to update and to assert user identities. The Rivetz toolkit provides access to the Trusted Execution Environment (TEE), which is built into most modern mobile devices.
