Solidus HALO is currently used to monitor more than 1 trillion events per day across more than 150 markets, protecting more than 25 million retail and institutional entities.

Advanced investigative tools, case management capabilities, 24/7 real-time monitoring and more than 200 integration points supported by HALO will provide FTX with insight into market integrity and allow it to identify potential risks across on-chain and off-chain data. The platform also amplifies FTX’s compliance capabilities amidst an evolving regulatory landscape.
