A distributed blockchain network could pool together computing resources to bolster cyber-security. Once the service is decentralized, it becomes harder to identify a vector that attackers can use to take down the network. A Mumbai-based startup, Block Armour, isolates critical infrastructure in the network and provides secure access for authorized users.
According to a whitepaper by Deloitte on blockchain and cybersecurity, end-to-end encryption of data on a private blockchain may provide organizations with relatively high levels of protection when it comes to data confidentiality and access control. Mumbai-based Block Armour is one organization addressing this opportunity: It offers a product called Software Defined Perimeters, which blends private, permissioned blockchains with Transport Layer Security (TLS) and Software-Defined Networks (SDN) technologies.
Harnessing the potential of Blockchain and emerging technology, Mumbai-based Block Armour, launched in 2016, aims to disrupt cybersecurity. Blending cybersecurity insights, IT security best practices, and emerging technologies, Block Armour aims to provide a base for a new breed of identity management, data/information integrity, and IoT-related security solutions.
Block Armour leverages blockchain, SDP (software-defined perimeter) and transport layer security (TLS) technology to provide what the company calls a Blockchain Defined Perimeter (BDP), isolating critical infrastructure and providing secure access to authorized users and devices.
