“We are proud to partner with Optherium to offer our clients an enhanced experience enabled by its blockchain technology” says Daniel Sandmeier, CEO at Instimatch Global. “Cyber security awareness is crucial for us and we strongly believe that it should run parallel with technological innovation. Using Optherium’s latest technology, we can implement a business data vault which provides unmatched security, data storage and transmission coming in from multiple operational systems. Additionally, our clients will benefit from user-friendly KYC and AML modules and enhanced transparency through a counterparty database”.
Serge Beck, CEO of Optherium, says, “We are excited to integrate our products with Instimatch’s Global Digital Network, to offer their clients individually and collectively the most secure data storage and unique ways of exchanging information.”
The collaboration is a significant step in the way both businesses address the needs of the market and reflects the desire by both Instimatch and Optherium to partner with companies that share the same disruptive and innovative vision.
