Rivetz launches Rivetz Network, supporting cybersecurity tools

Rivetz, a provider of hardware-based decentralized mobile cybersecurity, today announced the launch of The Rivetz Network and its supporting developer tools that enable simple access to the built-in hardware security already deployed on millions of devices.

The Rivetz solution offers application developers and network service providers access to proven technologies to enhance the quality and value of their relationship with their users. Using the toolkit, developers can easily integrate strong hardware security directly into an application, providing a simpler, safer and more valuable relationship with their users.

With the company’s patent-pending technology, Rivetz leverages the measured and secure Trusted Execution Environment (TEE), which is an isolated hardware computer environment separate from the device’s operating system that cannot be tampered with should the operating system be compromised.

The tools are designed to take advantage of the latest security capabilities for blockchain, IoT and cloud. The SDK enables application developers to meet the modern mobile users’ need to control their own relationships, to explore new business models, to provide proof both of assurance and of compliance, and to have access to all the benefits of a true digital identity.  

Modern mobile subscribers need more than just authentication – they need secure and provable transactions and messages. Built-in security can fully leverage automation, machine learning and AI models without compromising privacy. This provides the foundations for data to be created by a known user, on a known device, in a known condition with provable controls.

Rivetz already is working with more than 25 application developers to integrate these technologies into their services. The company also has partnered with ElevenPaths, the cybersecurity arm of global telecom Telefónica, to enhance its solution with embedded carrier-level security to provide fine-grained application controls even when a device is not in the owner’s physical possession. The developer tools offer a new model for access, privacy and control, while enabling every application to reduce complexity for users.

“We have partnered with Rivetz to provide world-class security solutions to our clients,” said Ali Agha, CEO of Olypsis. “We see excellent opportunities on the horizon for utilizing the Toolkit. The Toolkit has been easy to integrate and the Rivetz team has been more than helpful during the onboarding process. “

“A seamless and secure ecosystem is the key requirement to fuel healthy growth of true mobile e-commerce,” said Steven Sprague, CEO of Rivetz. “To achieve this, it is vital to accurately identify each user. Couple with The Rivetz Network, we provide the tools developers need to bridge the gap from today’s antiquated username/password model to a future where security is built in.”

The technology leverages the Global Platform Trusted Execution Environment that is commonly found on many Android devices and has been deployed on hundreds of millions of devices. The use of built-in security continues to grow and Rivetz is providing a solution that dramatically simplifies access to the global standards for all developers.
