With technology and services playing a critical role in digital asset payment and management aspects, the demand for a safer digital asset and private key management solution is dramatically increasing. The partnership brings together deep skills in MPC, blockchain key management solutions, technology development, and deployment in the finance sector via R3's enterprise blockchain platform Corda. 

As a result, Penta Security is devoted to expanding in the finance industry with its MPC technology which is based on the secret-sharing algorithm, and PALLET, an advanced key management solution for blockchain. Both parties will be heading to achieve goals through various new projects by forming a software enterprise firm, in addition to deploying Penta Security's MPC technology on R3's major projects. 

Dr. Sim, Chief Technology Officer at Penta Security, said: "There's no doubt that the private key to successful blockchain deployment is the most important asset. We believe Penta Security's MPC and digital asset management technology can provide an ideal key protection solution for both blockchain and digital asset key protection. By diversifying our offerings through strategic partnerships, we're excited to be devoting our expertise in the evolving blockchain scene."
