1Password, the frontrunner in human-centric security and privacy, recently announced the launch of Unlock with Single Sign-On (SSO). Now, enterprise customers can unlock their 1Password accounts using Okta with Duo and Azure AD to follow in the coming months. With deeper integrations into existing IT workflows, Unlock with SSO enables IT teams to improve their security posture while minimizing the everyday difficulties and stress associated with employee logins.
Steve Won, Chief Product Officer at 1Password, said, "Securing employees at scale is no small task. At 1Password, we believe that the foundation of enterprise security is secure employees, and we're driven by the principle that the safe thing must be easy by default." He added, "SSO plays a central role in enterprise security. Unlock with SSO was designed with a trusted device model, so that even if a user's identity provider credentials are compromised, 1Password ensures attackers won't be able to access customers' vault."

CertiK, the leading provider of blockchain security solutions, is excited to announce the launch of Skynet for Community, an all-in-one security, due diligence, and insights platform for the Web3 ecosystem. Skynet for Community empowers users, investors, and community members to make informed decisions about Web3 projects by providing a comprehensive set of tools for research, analysis, and monitoring.
With thousands of Web3 projects creating millions of points of data every day, it's easy to get lost in the noise. Skynet for Community’s rich data-driven insights help users to discover new projects, conduct due diligence on projects of interest, and keep up to date on the latest news and developments in the Web3 space. The platform aggregates a vast amount of data into Web3's most accessible due diligence tool.
Skynet for Community puts security front and center, with the Security Leaderboard ranking projects according to their Security Score and market performance. The Verified Teams (KYC) Leaderboard lists and ranks projects based on the status of their CertiK KYC Badge, which is awarded to project teams that undergo a rigorous background investigation.
Skynet for Community evaluates the security of Web3 projects through both manual and automated measures. The platform covers the majority of all Web3 projects using transparent metrics, regardless of their relationship with CertiK.
Manual Signal Scores are determined by CertiK’s research analysts and security experts, who evaluate factors such as the quality of whitepapers, documentation, and other fundamental aspects of the project. Automatic Signal Scores are calculated in real-time by the underlying software and monitoring systems, which evaluate website cybersecurity, security incidents, and other factors. The signals are weighted based on their severity or potential impact, and the aggregate of qualitative and quantitative insights makes up the project’s final Security Score.
Skynet for Community also includes tools such as Exchange Analyzer, which allows users to conduct due diligence on centralized exchanges by displaying their on-chain asset holdings; Skynet Alerts, a system that provides timely notifications on rugpulls and exploits in the cryptocurrency space; and Wallet Analyzer, which provides insights on wallet addresses and makes it easy to visualize and decipher on-chain transactions between wallets.
"Skynet for Community is a revolutionary product that leverages CertiK's expertise in blockchain security to provide an independent, transparent, and comprehensive evaluation of Web3 projects," said Professor Ronghui Gu, co-founder and CEO of CertiK. "We are excited to launch this product and offer the Web3 community a powerful tool that makes it easy to do your own research."
The launch of Skynet for Community marks a new era of transparency and accountability for the Web3 world as it provides a comprehensive evaluation of projects' security in real-time. With its uniquely comprehensive approach of combining manual and automated measures, CertiK's Security Score provides an independent lens through which all Web3 projects can be evaluated.
