posted 6 months ago
A major Vietnam telecom company and top American cloud service provider, Akamai, signed a joint agreement to deliver security services to a blockchain-based trading floor in Vietnam. Akamai is one of the biggest global distributed computing platforms, responsible for serving 15% to 30% of all web traffic according to Reuters. In 2017 Akamai had revenue of more than $2.5 billion. BCNEX, which offers support services for blockchain-based startups in Vietnam, will receive their security support. The aim of the partnership is to keep user data safe and prevent distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks.

The co-founder and CEO of BCNEX, Ngo Hoang Quyen said “Many trading floors around the world had to close due to the pervasion of hackers, including cases of DDoS attacks.” Le Anh Vu, one of the Vietnamese company’s directors, said end users of BCNEX will benefit from faster speeds when they are using the trading platform.
