Blockchain Technology Partners and Taekion partner to deliver Sextant for TFS providing users with military-grade information security

BTP Sextant extended to support the deployment and management of the highly secure blockchain-based Taekion File System (TFS) on Hyperledger Sawtooth

Edinburgh, Scotland January 28, 2021Blockchain Technology Partners (BTP), a leading enterprise blockchain company, and Taekion, a U.S.-based cybersecurity company, today announced Sextant for TFS providing users with military-grade information security by extending BTP’s blockchain and smart contract management platform, Sextant, to include support for the Taekion File System (TFS) on the Hyperledger Sawtooth blockchain.

TFS is a highly secure file system that combines the operational patterns of a file system with the advantages of blockchain technology. Its development was supported with seed funding by the U.S. National Science Foundation, U.S. Air Force and the U.S. Department of Energy in the form of Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) awards to Taekion to build secure enclaves for critical national infrastructure.

Sextant for TFS brings the benefits of military-grade information security to business, simplifying the curation and secure long term storage of key documents on a blockchain-based file system. Significantly Sextant for TFS can be used as a direct substitute for Linux and Unix based file systems typically used for critical data storage without changing the systems that connect to these file systems.

Under the auspices of the Global Blockchain Business Council, BTP and Taekion recently published a joint white paper Delivering 21st Century Information Security that highlights the key role blockchain can play in cybersecurity and the merits of Taekion’s approach.

Sextant for TFS, developed in partnership with Taekion, radically simplifies the deployment and management of TFS providing enterprises with military-grade information security in clicks not weeks.
