Digivault has launched a new permanently live secure storage system for digital assets, known as Helios.Helios offers logical protection against key duplication and theft, hardware protection of networks, and operates from multiple military-grade secure locations run by a recognised third-party provider.
Digivault calls Helios a “warm” custody solution – meaning that it is always connected to the internet, like a so-called ‘hot’ wallet, but in addition, Helios also integrates with Digivault’s offline ‘cold storage’ solution, Kelvin. Launched in 2019, Kelvin allows clients to store digital assets inside the vaults of leading storage provider Malca-Amit, next to gold and silver in vaults that meet the highest grades of bank-entrusted vault classification.
Digivault has received the Cyber Essentials Plus Certification, which is backed by the UK Government and supported by the National Cyber Secretary Centre. Since 2016, the UK Government has invested around GBP1.9 billion (USD2.48 billion) on cyber security and dealt with thousands of significant incidents, requiring cross government and industry responses.
“We are excited to unveil the next solution in our digital asset custody range. We have seen robust interest in our cold custody solution Kelvin and by adding warm custody with Helios, we believe we are truly paving the way for the institutional adoption of the digital asset class. Our unparalleled security measures continue to provide peace of mind to investors and we hope it will encourage more investors to explore the vast benefits provided by this asset class,” says Robert Cooper, chief executive officer of Digivault.
