Smart City Capital to Provide Sollensys' Blockchain Ransomware Solution to State, Local and Education (SLED) and Infrastructure Projects
PALM BAY, FL / ACCESSWIRE / March 29, 2022 / Sollensys Corp (OTCQB:SOLS), one of the first major cyber security companies specializing in ransomware recovery built on blockchain technology, today announced entry into an agreement that positions Smart City Capital to become a leading provider of data security in future smart city developments. Smart City Capital, based in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, provides cities of all sizes the power to become smart, connected, and resilient, reducing the existing digital divide.
Initially, Smart City Capital and Sollensys will be collaborating to serve one of the most comprehensive smart cities in the U.S. in one of south Florida's largest counties. The combined approach includes unique financing elements that tap into federal, state, and local subsidies and the benefits of bundling multiple services, such as cyber security together with broadband services, with the aim of reducing operating costs, such as data center and personnel overhead, combined with more efficient infrastructure upgrades. The initiative aims to create a comprehensive and affordable solution that will provide a framework for future rollouts and is attractive for cities to reach their cyber security goals more quickly, and to facilitate faster disaster recovery, while reducing financing burdens. Smart City Capital will also be offering blockchain archive services on its patented online platform, the Smart City Marketplace.
State and local agencies, as well as schools, utilities, and infrastructure providers, have seen a tremendous increase in cyber-attacks in recent years and many have not been able to increase their technology budget sufficiently to counter the ongoing threat. The federal government has initiated multiple programs to make rapid funding available to assist these underfunded entities in improving their security.
Pursuant to its agreement with Sollensys, Smart City Capital agreed to purchase three of Sollensys' Regional Service Centers that will provide blockchain based data archives for multiple cities. This equipment purchase represents a $2.25 million investment by Smart City Capital in infrastructure to be financed and hosted by Sollensys over a five-year period. The agreement also includes a commitment by Smart City Capital to utilize multiple petabytes of blockchain storage space at a cost of approximately $2 million annually, for a $4.25 million total initial commitment. The agreement was initiated and coordinated through Acadia Leadership Partners, an industry channel network and independent member of BDO Alliance USA.
"Sollensys shares our goal of comprehensive data security and rapid disaster recovery and are the ideal cyber technology provider for our smart cities moving forward," said Oscar Bode, CEO of Smart City Capital. "Sollensys' blockchain platforms are critical in the evolution and development of data recovery infrastructure and will bring among the most advanced technology for resilience into our future smart-cities, incentivizing adoption by providing faster recovery times and a perfect chain of custody for data."
Rather than starting with penetrable endpoints, Sollensys begins with securing a copy of what the hackers want most to hold hostage and corrupt: organizations' digital intellectual property and operational data. Sollensys exists to ensure companies and institutions never pay a ransom and their businesses can continue swiftly by safeguarding an immutable and uncorrupted copy of their data.
"Smart City Capital is a master integration partner in the smart cities space, and we are thrilled to partner with them as their primary provider of data security technology," said Don Beavers, CEO of Sollensys Corp. "Specifically, Smart City Capital brings a proven ability to create public-private partnerships with local municipalities, state and federal governments and major corporations to bring the funding, engineering and installation resources and support solutions for cyber security initiatives and the migration to more secure data. We look forward to working with them to help accelerate the worlds transition to blockchain."
