High-Tech Bridge, a Swiss web security company, announced on Tuesday that its application security platform ImmuniWeb now accepts instant payments in over 50 digital currencies including Bitcoin and Ethereum.

The company said that the move will provide many blockchain startups simple and convenient access to web and mobile application security services, enabling them to pay in various digital currencies or tokens.

When we launched ImmuniWeb in 2014, we were the first application security vendor to accept online payments by credit card and PayPal. Today, a huge market segment wants to pay in cryptocurrencies to protect data and customers. We are happy to make this possible for the benefit of the emerging blockchain industry.

The firm added that it doesn’t endorse any particular cryptocurrency and doesn’t store or invest in it.
