Akash Network, the world’s first decentralized open-source cloud, announced a partnership with CertiK, the leading Blockchain and Smart Contract Cybersecurity company.

The deal between the two allows CertiK’s clients to decentralize their cloud infrastructure on Akash’s permissionless, censorship-resistant, and lower-cost open-source cloud platform. At the same time, it ensured on-chain protection supported by CertiK’s trusted products and services. Akash Network’s community will benefit from CertiK’s industry-leading suite of security solutions that will help it to secure deployments and node operations for the decentralized cloud.

CertiK Chain provides developers with coding protections and versatility, easing blockchain adoption for developers and large businesses while enhancing blockchain technology confidence.

This partnership occurred over the potential of Web3. CertiK nodes are currently working on Akash MAINNET 2, which is the world’s first decentralized cloud.

“At CertiK, we’ve always admired what Akash has done for the general Cosmos community and the blockchain industry as a whole. We are a true believer in the DeCloud movement led by Akash Network. As we are seeing more and more projects joining the web3 revolution, it is only right if CertiK and Akash join forces to deliver a secure, scalable, and truly decentralized cloud that is not only cost-efficient but also powered by the people,” said Jay Jie, Head of CertiK Chain.

With the release of Akash MAINNET 2, decentralized applications (dApp), decentralized finance (DeFi), and decentralized organizations (DAO) will now be able to shift from their existing centralized cloud providers such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, or Google Cloud, to Akash, the first viable decentralized cloud solution in the market.

With CertiK, all these services can now layer on monitoring and security, thus enabling an extra layer of protection in the DeCloud.

Akash Network and CertiK are looking forward to the possibility of deploying Pancake Swap’s front-end on a decentralized cloud that would display the capabilities of a censorship-resistant and permissionless cloud, all while being covered by CertiK’s cloud protection product, CertiKShield, a decentralized on-chain tool for reimbursing missing or stolen properties. CertiKShield can be used to protect DeFi protocols and users once more.

“We’re thrilled to partner with CertiK, a leader and pioneer in blockchain cybersecurity, to enable DeFi and blockchain projects to decentralize their cloud infrastructure while layering on cutting-edge monitoring and security technologies. Together, we will expand the capabilities of Web3, enabling developers to build faster, with more freedom and security, and at lower cost,” said Boz Menzalji, COO of Akash Network.
