The loss of $2 billion in crypto hacks alone in 2022 shows the importance of comprehensive cybersecurity practices and the growing demand for top-tier cybersecurity services.

The team’s expertise in ZK technology positions them well to ensure the next wave of industry innovation. Moreover, the products made by Hexens have the potential to become a standard toolkit for every developer and security researcher in the blockchain space,” said Queenie, partner at IOSG Ventures.

“Our unique methodologies and technologies that we’ve honed over a decade of work in cybersecurity enable us to know what the early blockchain market needs. We will soon release our first products to help builders, security engineers, projects, businesses, and all blockchains and ecosystems have peace of mind and stay safe.” Sipan has been added.

“Today, many companies are facing a single point of failure as they rely on technologies that store assets on the chain. Our main goal is to set new standards and raise expectations about what cybersecurity solutions can deliver.” Siban also added.
