Com-Guard Uses Blockchain to Strengthen its Security
It is undoubtedly impressive to hear companies implementing blockchain solutions for their wide range of business needs from improving efficiency to fortifying security. Com-Guard Inc has decided to capitalize on bitcoin to help enhance its security by implementing the full bitcoin nodes on Raspberry Pi system. While it will not be an easy task, however, the results will be remarkable with a robust security framework that will be called the DataCrypt, and it will exist on the bitcoin node.
Com-Guard is a highly respected company in the virtual security sector thanks to its history of creating high-class security apps over the past decade. The security company is officially acknowledged as an app developer for multiple operating systems such as Windows, Android, Mac, and iOS among others. Com-Guard has also collected numerous awards and plaudits with its highly intuitive ComputerSafe program. In adding to its rich past, the veteran security company is seeking for further glory and success with their latest project.
Com-Guard is nurturing the ambitions of porting the revolutionary blockchain software to create better security apps. The project will be initially based within the Windows operating system, with support for other environments coming soon. The security applications designed with a blockchain base will enjoy significant adoption within the mobile and netbook markets. Com-Guard has already proven itself in the market with its GPS-aided event and item tracking apps. Let us look at what their CGUD DataCrypt app offers clients.
Developing the App on Raspberry Pi
Enhancing the bitcoin network using nodes has become progressively critical over time. These nodes must be high-performance full nodes to enable the blockchain system to work efficiently. Full nodes offer several valuable features like validation, consensus, relaying, bootstrapping and also ensure effective decentralization. If the bitcoin network was to suffer a lack of enough full nodes, then it has a high potential of getting its core services, including decentralization, significantly compromised.
Com-Guard seeks to employ the use of Raspberry Pi to make sure that there will always be full nodes for bitcoin. Also, the minimal requirements for setting up the latest Pi 3 devices means that it can help people significantly cut their costs down with regards to maintaining the node. The Com-Guard CEO, Edward Savarese added that the system would utilize the range of computers from Raspberry Pi to implement a comprehensively configured system with a full bitcoin node.
The primary reason for choosing Raspberry Pi as the foundation for this particular app is to ensure that end users can implement the solution seamlessly. You will not need to have lots of computer experience to use this product as it will be quite user-friendly and straightforward. The first deliveries are planned to start by the end of the last quarter of 2018. The usability of these devices should help increase adoption for the Com-Guard products, thus translating to more sales.
Com-Guard is seeking to consolidate its gains with this new security app and strategic partnerships. Last year in 2017, the firm remarkably signed an MOU with SIRC Inc, the solar roofing company. In the agreement, Com-Guard agreed to deploy its outstanding skill and experience within the IoT marketplaces and target products that could enhance SIRC Inc’s offerings. It was a sales and technology partnership that has the potential of benefiting both companies.
