Armada: Cryptocurrency Risk and Fraud Controls for Financial Institutions

CipherTrace Armada helps banks, payment providers, and regulators uncover virtual currency-related transactions for use in risk and fraud models by mapping legal names and account numbers to VASPs. Armada’s VASP Risk Monitor allows users to view, filter, sort, and drill down on VASP risk- and fraud-related data points, such as asset profiles, domiciled location, and transactional risk profiling. Also included are VASPs’ cyber risk scores, powered by RiskRecon, enabling you to assess the quality of cybersecurity risk performance based on a company’s internet-facing IT profile.


Inspector: Financial Investigations and Blockchain Forensics

CipherTrace’s enormous repository of attribution data ties crypto-addresses to real-world organizations, sanctioned entities, IP addresses, and events. Complete transactional histories and a graphical explorer make it easy to “follow the money,” and integrated case management capabilities power collaborative investigation.


Sentry: Cryptocurrency Anti-Money Laundering Transaction Monitoring

Ciphertrace Sentry empowers Virtual Asset Service Providers (VASPs), such as crypto exchanges and crypto over-the-counter (OTC) desks, to automatically screen incoming and proposed outgoing transactions for suspicious activities in compliance with company policies. The Sentry App allows your internal business systems to take full advantage of Ciphertrace data in real-time “know your transaction” (KYT) monitoring situations for compliance with anti-money laundering (AML) and counter-terrorism financing (CFT) regulations. It includes a rules creation workbench, alerts queue and workflow capabilities, and case management to support investigations. The Sentry API empowers developers to utilize Ciphertrace’s advanced crypto-address-level data in third-party applications, such as transaction monitoring, fraud detection, and investigative fusion tools.
