Cisco provides security solution for enterprise blockchain platform


South Korea’s Lambda 256 has partnered with Cisco for the security of its Blockchain as a Service (BaaS) platform, Luniverse. Cisco’s StealthWatch Cloud will be embedded in the enterprise blockchain platform offered by Lambda 256, ZDNet Korea reported.

The StealthWatch solution uses machine learning and behavioral modeling to respond to cybersecurity threats.

Luniverse supports Hyperledger Fabric in its BaaS hosting offering. 

Even though this offering is enterprise focused, the company’s heritage is in the cryptocurrency sector. Lambda 256 is part of Dunamu, which operates the Upbit crypto exchange and also a venture investment fund with ten blockchain investments.

While Cisco has done some work on its own enterprise blockchain tools, the networking firm is also using blockchain internally. Four months ago, it partnered with NEC to use blockchain to ensure the authenticity of its networking equipment and make sure software is not tampered with.

Cisco is also a participant in the Trust Your Supplier offering from Chainyard to manager supplier qualifications. Other members include IBM, Lenovo and Nokia.
