Pioneering the banking sector’s adoption of digital assets

We’re excited to announce Hex Trust’s business partnership with IBM to go to market together, to deliver the best digital asset custody and settlement solution for the banking sector and financial institutions.

The solution is the result of a business partnership and strategic collaboration between Hex Trust and IBM, following the agreement signed by the companies in 2019.

Hex Trust will provide on-demand wallets that remove cold storage human attack vectors; bespoke and immutable risk-based approval policies for transactions, operations and administration; and support for any form of digital asset. Beyond safeguarding private keys, Hex Trust will extend its offer to assets borrowing and lending, staking, collateral management, corporate actions, multi-custodian settlement, and other capabilities that provide financial returns for assets under management.

The platform is built on IBM™ Hyper Protect and includes enterprise-scale protected memory enclaves, FIPS 140–2 Level 4 hardware security modules, and Industry-leading data confidentiality and support for regulatory compliance through strict controls on external and privileged user access to sensitive data such as account profiles, transaction approval rules, AML ratings, KYC documentation, compliance/audit and statement data.

Hex Trust and IBM are proud to collaborate to enable institutional adoption in the blockchain ecosystem.

“Through our relationship with IBM as a Business Partner Hex Trust has hit a key milestone. Leveraging IBM’s advanced data security and protection features through IBM™ Hyper Protect Virtual Servers with the dynamic accessibility and scalability, Hex Trust’s proprietary platform will encourage regulated financial institutions to enter the space.” Alessio Quaglini, CEO of Hex Trust.

“Data privacy and protection are key concerns for enterprises and customers within the digital asset business,” highlights Ross Mauri, General Manager for IBM Z. “By taking advantage of IBM Hyper Protect Services, Hex Trust can gain the benefits provided by the security and privacy solutions underpinned by IBM LinuxONE, to establish a highly secured platform for their institutional custody solution.”
