Keevo announced the news in a press release published on Wednesday, July 1st. According to Keevo, the recent partnership intends to deliver advanced backup and beneficiary services for users of its next-generation state-of-the-art crypto wallet, Keevo Model 1.
Keevo Model 1 wallet is a next-generation crypto hardware wallet that promises unbreakable security powered by ultra-secure self-custody digital ID and private key management.
According to the company, the key to this state-of-the-art security mechanism is its patent-pending Multi-Factor / Multi-Signature Authentication system.
Keevo Wallet features a backup device called Carbon Key that stores and encrypts users’ unique biometric data (e.g., a fingerprint) and passwords. This allows them 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,” highlighted Keevo.
Once the biometric data and strong passwords on Keevo’s novel Carbon Key™ backup device are stored, it will be stored in of Iron Mountain’s 1,480+ enterprise-grade, geo-dispersed vaults. Then Keevo and Iron Mountain will create a digital backup of users’ encrypted information that will be stored in an air-gapped storage facility. This way users can conveniently retrieve and restsore their sensitive information.
According to Keevo, the recent partnership will further its mission to “provide security, simplicity, and privacy for users to manage their online identity and digital assets.” Henry Vogel, the founder and Chairman of Keevo, said:
“This new strategic partnership is a significant validation and step forward in achieving our goal of breaking the compromise between security and simplicity. 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.”
