Things to know:

– Powered by the most secure API on the market—Ledger Authentication Module—Ledger Enterprise can help you to streamline management, mitigate risks and ensure business continuity to deliver at scale.
The risks and challenges associated with crypto asset custody—especially at an institutional level—are significant.
Whether it’s a bank offering crypto custodial services or an exchange dealing with heavy traffic, a specialized set of skills, technology and infrastructure are necessary to ensure operational efficiency, account security and proper key management.
However, many custodial platforms today have inadequate systems and manual, time-consuming processes in place that can’t cater to these needs.
This is where APIs with their automation capabilities come in.
“Here at Ledger Enterprise, we’ve noticed a +500% increase in API operations on our platform over the past six months,” said Lila Garcia, Global Head of Customer Success. “This increase is mainly driven by crypto exchanges that use our infrastructure to safeguard and manage assets.”
Here are just some clear examples of how Ledger Enterprise API can help you to streamline management, mitigate risks and ensure business continuity to deliver at scale.
