Data443 Extends Significant Lead for Enterprise Security on Ripple XRP Ledger, Becomes Recommended Validator

Data443’s ClassiDocs Added to Ripple XRP Ledger Ecosystem Trusted Unique Node List

RALEIGH, N.C., September 6, 2018 (Globe Newswire) — LandStar, Inc. (OTCPK: LDSR) (“LandStar” or the “Company”), the parent company of Data443™ Risk Mitigation, Inc. (“Data443”), a leading data security and privacy company, announced today that Data443 has been added to the default recommended Ripple XRP Ledger ecosystem’s Unique Node List (UNL). The UNL of only 10 other organizations is a set of suggested validating nodes that a given participant listens to for reliable information about transactions in the XRP Ledger. Nodes that appear on many participants’ UNLs are considered trustworthy and authenticated by Ripple and are used to validate transactions. By extending coverage for the XRP Ledger Unique Node List, Data443 reinforces its commitment to provide enterprise-ready data security solutions for the growing blockchain market.

“Ripple continues to push for decentralization of the XRP Ledger to increase reliability and reduce the risk of a single-point failure,” said Jason Remillard, CEO of LandStar, Inc. and founder of Data443. “While some blockchain platforms choose validators based only on mining power, XRP Ledger validators are chosen based on performance, reliability, and security. We are proud to be among the industry leaders who are providing such capabilities. Recognition by Ripple as a trusted validator further substantiates our lead in the blockchain security services arena.”

According to Gartner, the business value-add of blockchain will grow to just over $176 billion by 2025 and exceed $3.1 trillion by 2030. As Ripple moves to make XRP a preferred digital payment asset, trusted validators such as Data443 will strengthen the platform and make it more secure for enterprise use.

“The enterprise market is moving beyond cryptocurrencies with respect to blockchain and this trend will continue to expand over the next decade and beyond,” said Remillard. “Data443 has always taken a future-focused approach with regard to blockchain. We launched public and validated “Validator” services for the Ripple ecosystem back in February and augmented that with additional PII detection capabilities in April. As a XRP Ledger trusted validator, we not only strengthen and support the platform but also provide added-value to the enterprises that use it by enabling deeper functionality such as data classification, discovery, and compliance for blockchain.”

Authenticated by Ripple, Data443’s XRP Ledger UNL joins a small and concerted community which may be viewed here:
