Panther Protocol, the end-to-end privacy solution building the privacy layer for Web3 and Decentralized Finance, and Kudelski Security, the leading provider of comprehensive cybersecurity solutions to large enterprise and public-sector clients around the world, are thrilled to announce an exciting partnership agreement between the companies.
As the newest extension of Kudelski’s partner ecosystem, Panther aims to deliver increased privacy enablement as Kudelski moves forward with the delivery of data-driven solutions within the US and the UK.
One of the core tenets of the Kudelski ecosystem has always been secret management within chips, root of trust (RoT), protection of digital artifacts, and ensuring the safety of our customers.
The partnership extends Kudelski’s partner network into the blockchain ecosystem as Panther’s privacy preserving protocol accelerates their ability to bring data marketplace, data monetization, and DeFi enabled ecosystems more quickly to market and to offer more advanced service and build capabilities.
Scott Carlson, Head of Blockchain Center of Excellence, said:
“Our first expansion of these concepts will be into the UK market where we will work with Panther to unlock value within data inside the UK economy.”
Dr. Anish Mohammed, co-founder and CTO of Panther, said about the partnership:
“Kudelski is a global heavyweight in cyber-security services with clients in the enterprise, government and blockchain arenas. We believe this partnership provides both Panther and Kudelski with a once-in-a-generation opportunity to create best in class use cases and technologies for data protection and privacy.”
Oliver Gale, Co-Founder and CEO at Panther, added:
“As we develop this relationship, expect some thought leadership pieces as well as some exciting technology advancements as we explore new architectural directions in wallets, key management, and scalable privacy solutions that bridge legacy systems with the new paradigms being created in Blockchain.”
Panther’s mission is to accelerate the development of DeFi and Web3 ecosystems, while restoring privacy in these environments. It envisions a future where individuals not only benefit from the ability of distributed technologies to provide fairer digital transaction systems to everyone, but may do so with the ultimate confidence that their privacy is maintained. Panther believes the combination of decentralisation and full control over privacy is the pinnacle of digital empowerment, and that privacy enhancing technologies will open the floodgates for mainstream adoption of decentralized applications.
