Wednesday 27th June 2018, Lugano, Switzerland, trade.io – In anticipation of its upcoming cryptocurrency exchange, trade.io has announced a commitment to exceeding common security standards and has ensured the early implementation of a comprehensive security program.
During its ICO, rigid security controls and systems were deployed, and as a result, trade.io was able to fend off numerous cyber attacks and attempted hacks on the website and our users.
To further strengthen its guarantee of a trusted, reliable and safe platform, as reported earlier this year, we have employed a world-class security officer and a highly trained team with the ability to enhance trade’s cybersecurity robustness.
As a result, the following technologies, practices and procedures have therefore been implemented:
- A multi-layered protection for users to sign in to the platform using several authentication methods. In addition, trade.io is implementing and enforcing only secured communications for its users with the platform.
- The exchange will employ proprietary algorithms for the sake of ensuring security to the exchange funds and wallets architecture.
- Extensive risk assessments, penetration tests, architecture reviews and code review processes are conducted by internal and external security experts, working under international known standards and methodologies, to make sure the platform is secured via best practices.
- An in-house professional cybersecurity team that will monitor the platform 24/7 for anomalies related to the exchange, user accounts and activities.
- Working methodologies based on international known standards such as the NIST framework and use of top of the line security products to secure internal systems.
- Bank-level security monitoring systems that allows trade.io to quickly detect and block cyber incidents related to the platform, users accounts or internal systems.
- Cybersecurity is integrated in all of the development stages including design, implementation and testing.
trade.io’s Head of Security, Ari Propper, commented, “We are using innovative industry-leading technologies to detect, protect and respond quickly to cyber events.
