Cryptocurrency custody technology provider Fireblocks has started offering support for hardware security models (HSMs) and cloud service providers Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform, Alibaba Cloud, Thales and Securosys, the company announced Tuesday.
The moves are part of Fireblocks’ effort to make its services accessible to a wider range of businesses and allow it to serve a market of banks whose IT infrastructure is deployed on premise and cloud-based solutions, a spokesperson said.
With the new additions, the enterprise platform is covering the majority of the cloud industry's market share.
Fireblocks has so far brought over 50 major financial institutions into the digital asset space, including BNY Mellon, BNP Paribas and Australian bank ANZ Bank by providing infrastructure support. Clients also include fintech company Revolut and Moonpay.
In December, the U.S.-based company received the Cryptocurrency Security Standard (CCSS), a first-of-its-kind certification that was built as a security standard for crypto wallets and custody.

UPDATE (June 28, 17:04 UTC): Adds Moonpay as client of Fireblocks and takes out Revolut.
