Wallet Watch Risk Scoring: A Look at Webacy’s Latest Security Innovation
Here at Webacy, we strive to offer the Web3 world the latest in innovative wallet security solutions.
With Wallet Watch, you can monitor your digital assets more precisely in real-time with capabilities like:
- Live notifications for any inbound and outbound transactions, including approvals
- SMS and email alerts for all wallet activity
- Unlimited wallet connections to be monitored
Additionally, we have recently added our Wallet Risk Score feature, revealed at ETHDenver, which allows us to assess the risk level of your wallet and transactional activities. To use the Risk Score feature, all you need to do is enter your ETH address, ENS, or UNS to receive a personalized score. A wallet connection is not required.
When paired together, the Wallet Watch product and Wallet Risk Score feature make it possible to greatly enhance the security and monitoring capabilities of your wallet.
How Does Webacy Wallet Watch & Risk Score Work?
Webacy’s Wallet Watch’s risk scoring component is powered by a proprietary algorithm. This algorithm looks at several key factors that impact the security of your wallet, such as:
- Wallet age
- Transactional activity
- Use of smart contracts
- Details of smart contracts
- Associated wallet risk (for example, if another wallet you interact with regularly becomes compromised, the system may flag those transactions as risky moving forward)
Suspicious activity, transactions, or interactions will result in an elevated Wallet Risk Score.
Why Enabling Continuous Security is Important
Though the mainstream financial world is growing more accepting of blockchain technologies, we are still a ways away from any kind of standardized security regulation.
As such, it falls on the shoulders of each individual investor to ensure the safety of their assets.
At Webacy, we believe that the concept of “continuous security” is the key to keeping your risk level low and avoiding critical compromises that could result in a partial or total loss of assets. By staying on top of your wallet security, you can rest easier knowing your assets are protected against hacks, malware, and other malicious activities.
With our monitoring and risk-scoring capabilities, we can help you keep a close eye on your high-risk wallets and maintain the security of your low-risk wallets – all while getting real-time notifications in one place. What’s more, seeing approvals also gives visibility into things that control your wallet that you may not even need anymore.
Continuous security is crucial not just on the individual level but on the business level as well. That’s why we currently have a Risk Scoring feature designed specifically for enterprises under development (more news on this feature to come in the near future!)
