Privus SecurLine to Get Hardware-Level Security from Rivetz Partnership
SecurLine is the most advanced, secure and transparent peer-to-peer communications encryption application for smartphones.
Rivetz, an industry leader in embedded, blockchain-based mobile security solutions, and Privus, a leading pioneer in privacy and security technology, are in partnership that will enable Privus to provide unmatched protection of private keys to significantly increase the app's security posture by employing Rivetz's state-of-the-art Toolkit to access the existing hardware security capabilities already built into millions of mobile devices.

Rivetz's best-in-class security solutions hinge upon access to the Trusted Execution Environment (TEE), which is an isolated, measured computer environment separate from the operating system. By provisioning all digital transactions through the TEE, Rivetz assures that users' private keys cannot be altered or stolen if the operating system were tampered with or infected by malware.
Privus expressed excitement about the partnership with Rivetz noting that both companies are a great fit. According to Henrique Corrêa da Silva, CEO of Privus, Rivetz is the leading provider of embedded protection of private keys in mobile environments, while SecurLine has become the go-to tool for those demanding bulletproof, verifiable security and privacy in their communications. This partnership also unlocks new levels of cooperation beyond SecurLine, to provide enhanced security for other projects such as the Privum Network, a community-focused, decentralized, global infrastructure that allows everyone, anywhere to access the Internet privately and securely at any time.
Swiss-based Bit Armor AG, which trades under the Privus name, is a global reference in privacy and digital security, focused on government, institutional and corporate clients and high-net-worth individuals demanding the highest levels of digital security. Privus undertakes an independent audit of the full source code of the full range of its easy-to-use solutions, also open to review by its clients. Their seasoned, multi-disciplinary team is dedicated to the design of best-in-class technology.
Steven Sprague, founder and CEO of Rivetz noted that verifiable security is of the utmost importance when ensuring trust within a network. He added that Rivetz and Privus are allied in their perspectives on privacy and security for any organization. Together, the duo are laying the groundwork for a more streamlined and protected communication worldwide.
