The core BlocWatch team has been building enterprise monitoring solutions for new technologies for the past 20 years. We have founded and successfully exited 4 separate companies during that time – the most recent being CloudCheckr. We are now applying the lessons that we have learned to the blockchain space and have built a new team of software developers and engineers across our offices in Rochester, NY, Reno, NV, Seattle, WA, as well as the UK and Argentina.
BlocWatch provides an enterprise ready blockchain monitoring platform for permissioned and unpermissioned blockchain implementations. Specifically, our solution provides complete visibility around operational metrics, smart contract status, user configurations, and more. We offer pre-built and user defined activity alerting along with a library of best practices to ensure improved blockchain security.
As part of our development process, we have spoken with hundreds of blockchain executives and developers from around the world. The feedback that we've received validates the need for providing transparency, security, analytics, and compliance on blockchain network. We continue to see new blockchain use cases weekly and are excited to offer a solution that will support blockchain adoption worldwide.
