Overclock Labs and Polyverse Join to Increase Akash Network Cybersecurity
Overclock Labs has announced a strategic partnership with Polyverse Corporation to secure the Akash Network using Polyverse's Moving Target Defense (MTD) cybersecurity product.
Overclock Labs are the creators of the Akash Network, a decentralized protocol for provisioning, scaling and securing cloud workloads.
Polyverse's MTD solution, the Polyverse polymorphic version of Linux, is the only cybersecurity product proven by the U.S. Department of Defense to stop 100 percent of zero-day memory exploits.
The partnership with Polyverse is to secure Akash's blockchain nodes and also protect tenants from zero-day attacks across thousands of Akash-connected data centers using Polyverse's polymorphic version of Linux, according to Nick Alesandro, Overclock's VP of Product.
Overclock will secure Akash nodes using Polyverse's scrambling compiler technology, providing high-entropy binaries that are unique on every compile while maintaining exact semantic and performance equivalence that are critical for blockchain performance. Polyverse's defense provides completely automatic defense against some of the most severe attacks, enabling secure computing throughout the Akash Network.
The Akash Network is a blockchain-powered open protocol for cloud infrastructure that allows companies to sell space on their underutilized servers to developers eager for a competitively-priced alternative to Amazon, Google, and Microsoft.
Akash challenges the oligopoly of large cloud infrastructure providers by unlocking the vast amount of underutilized servers sitting in global companies' on-premise and co-located data centers, making them available for containerized deployments via the Akash Network.
