Digital Asset Exchange BlockQuake™ Partners with Leading Cybersecurity Firm Friedman CyZen

NEW YORK, July 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- BlockQuake™, a regulatory-driven digital asset exchange, announced a partnership today with Friedman CyZen ("CyZen"), a leading cybersecurity firm with decades of experience, including technology compliance with various regulatory frameworks. CyZen, an affiliate of the CPA firm Friedman LLC, performs various services including continual security log auditing, penetration tests, cybersecurity control, processing audits, and compliance consulting. BlockQuake™ will utilize CyZen for a number of these services, enhancing the exchange's investor protection and security, and enabling a higher standard of self-regulation. BlockQuake™ recently passed a penetration test performed by CyZen which did not identify critical vulnerabilities or other cybersecurity issues ripe for exploitation.

"We are proud to partner with CyZen, which will support us in maintaining the highest standards of security on the BlockQuake™ Exchange," said Antonio Brasse, CEO, and Co-founder of BlockQuake™. "With the prevalence of large-scale security breaches and crypto scams, cryptocurrency traders, especially new investors, are rightly concerned about how to choose an exchange that is legitimate and safe. This partnership should bring confidence to our investors, who know they are trading on an exchange that prioritizes their safety and security."

All industries, including cryptocurrency, face the threat of cyberattacks. In the past year, numerous cryptocurrency exchanges have suffered massive security breaches in which hackers have compromised investor data and stolen millions of dollars in funds.

CyZen joins BSA-compliant Custodian Prime Trust, Chainalysis, and Fireblocks, as another regulatory- forward partner that BlockQuake™ has integrated ahead of its upcoming launch. These key vendor partnerships will help BlockQuake mitigate potentially devastating security risks and will also ontribute towards addressing key security concerns that traders have identified within the cryptocurrency landscape.

"Hackers do not just go after multi-million dollar institutions. Cryptocurrency exchanges are becoming more frequent targets of ransomware and other cyberattacks," said William Mendez, Managing Director of Operations for CyZen. "With CyZen's vast experience in cybersecurity, we bring peace of mind to BlockQuake™ and its investors that their funds are always protected. We also provide the multifaceted services they need to navigate evolving cyber threats."
