Menlo Park, CA (June 11, 2020)
Catallaxy, a subsidiary of accounting firm Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton, partners with CipherTrace, the industry-leading cryptocurrency intelligence company, to enhance its cyber crime tracking capabilities. While most accounting firms have developed internal tools for blockchain audit, Catallaxy’s solution is the first to ingest attribution data directly from a blockchain analysis firm.
“Our synergistic partnership with CipherTrace is poised to produce the most powerful blockchain auditing and forensics tools in the market,” said Michel Besner, Managing Director at Catallaxy. “Our collaboration will ultimately allow us to better address growing cyber threats and compliance risks posed by illicit cryptocurrency and cross-border transactions.”
The joint Catallaxy / CipherTrace solution will enable investigators and auditors to attribute transactions to high-risk blockchain entities and international virtual asset service providers. It will also empower investigators to identify illicit cryptocurrency from dark markets, ransomware, thefts, frauds, and offshore sources.
“Investigators working for financial market authorities and various police enforcement groups require tools that cross the bridge between blockchain ledgers and other relevant content out there in order to find proofs of illicit or criminal activities,” said Michel Besner. “We believe the forensics experts and best-of-breed blockchain intelligence provided by CipherTrace to be a core component of delivering a solution that meets the most demanding requirements of investigative work out there.”
“With coverage for the widest range of tokens and the world’s best blockchain analytics, CipherTrace tools offer the industry’s most comprehensive way to trace transaction flows and comply with regulatory anti-money laundering requirements,” said Dave Jevans, CEO of CipherTrace. “We are excited to see Catallaxy select us as a trusted partner and to collaborate with them in developing advanced auditing and forensics tools.”
“This new relationship, which combines leading experts in cryptocurrency, blockchain and auditing, creates the next level of innovation in bringing investigative tools to the market,” added Stephen Ryan, COO of CipherTrace.
This partnership will provide a solution for professionals to evaluate risk-based controls, monitor ongoing performance, and lookback to assess the past effectiveness of money laundering controls.
