Cryptocurrency Trading Risks Continue to Rise
SecuX Technology has steadfastly committed to protecting users’ digital assets in increasingly complex and volatile cryptocurrency trading. While full of potential, the market has witnessed a surge in illicit activities, including a staggering $100 million worth of NFTs stolen between July 2021 and 2022. Recognizing these rising threats, SecuX has focused on enhancing security and protection at all levels, leading the charge in developing blockchain security products and services.
Peter Chen, Chairman of SecuX Technology, addressed this commitment: “SecuX has always prioritized security, striving to enhance protection and safety at all levels, ensuring the development of the highest quality blockchain security products and services. We are honored to have the opportunity to leverage Trend’s outstanding cybersecurity expertise built over the past 30 years, allowing SecuX users to manage their assets with peace of mind in a more secure environment and without worries, ultimately providing a better user experience.”
Phishing Scams Prevention and Cold Wallets
Trend’s global footprint and expertise in cybersecurity is a perfect ally for SecuX’s emphasis on user security. Trend’s Metaverse security program, led by Sam Ku, is designed to protect users against threats, particularly in the emerging Web3 environment. Sam underscores the evolving risks from viruses, fraud, and phishing, which threat actors continually exploit.
Ku said, “From the inception of blockchain technology to the recent rise of the metaverse, Trend has been at the forefront of cybersecurity research to prepare for unforeseeable risks. We are excited to collaborate with SecuX. With Trend’s cybersecurity expertise, we provide end-to-end protection from the first line of defense to securing cold wallet devices and safe-guarding cryptocurrency transactions.”
Leveraging SecuX’s unwavering commitment to secure digital asset management and Trend’s cybersecurity expertise, this collaboration promises a safer future for users within the cryptocurrency space.
