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.

High-Tech Bridge also provides various free web security services that can help blockchain startups to promptly detect phishing websites targeting their customers or impersonating their brand.

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

Binance announced an agreement with IdentityMind, which will help it ensure compliance with regulatory requirements and improve data security.

IdentityMind provides cryptocurrency exchanges with access to the platform, thanks to which they can monitor compliance with customer identification and anti-money laundering requirements in real time. This includes connecting new customers, managing their profiles and monitoring transactions.

The partnership between Binance and IdentityMind further strengthens our compliance capabilities and our commitment to re-invest in the blockchain ecosystem and grow it. We continue to evolve and enhance security systems while adhering to regulatory mandates in the countries we operate in. The goal is to foster greater trust among financial institutions worldwide.

Chief Compliance Officer, Binance

Last year, Bloomberg wrote about the Binance user identification system as the least strict in the entire industry, and linked the “level of anonymity” provided by the exchange with the risks of money laundering and market manipulation.

In October, Binance entered into an agreement with a supplier of transaction analysis software on the blockchains Chainalysis, and in November with Refinitiv, which developed an automated solution for client verification.

Whether the ordinary users of the platform will feel the impact of the integration of IdentityMind tools on themselves, the exchange does not specify.
