Keevo, U.S.-based next-gen crypto hardware wallet provider, announced on Wednesday announced a strategic partnership with Iron Mountain (NYSE: IRM), the storage and information management services company enabling digital transformation, to deliver advanced backup and beneficiary services for users of its crypto wallet, the Keevo Model 1.
According to Keevo, the Keevo Model 1 offers state-of-the-art security to keep users’ private information secure along with a sleek design and easy-to-use interface that makes it simple for users to manage their cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin.
“At the heart of Keevo’s breakthrough in security and convenience is its patent-pending Multi-Factor/Multi-Signature Authentication system which allows users to backup and restore their private information without having to entrust any third-party custodian or write down and manage paper seed phrases common to almost every other crypto wallet. Instead, Keevo users encrypt and store their unique biometric data (e.g., a fingerprint) and passwords on a Keevo backup device called a Carbon Key.”
Keevo further explained subscribers of its new Secure Beneficiary and Storage service may also designate an heir and allow them to encrypt and store their own private data on individual Carbon Keys. Through the partnership, Keevo and Iron Mountain will:
- Store users’ physical Carbon Keys in a geo-dispersed, temperature-controlled and secured Iron Mountain vault
- Create a digital backup of users’ encrypted information
- Securely store that backup in an air-gapped storage facility
- Provide 24/7 security and end-to-end chain of custody controls
- Offer users convenient retrieval and re-storage options
Speaking about the collaboration, Henry Vogel, Founder and Chairman of Keevo, stated:
“Together with Iron Mountain’s global footprint, world-class data management services, and enterprise-grade, secure storage capabilities, Keevo customers will gain unrivaled privacy, convenience, and security for their digital assets.”
