CertiK is excited to announce a security partnership with Polygon, a protocol and a framework for building and connecting Ethereum-compatible blockchain networks. Together, we’ll be empowering a trustworthy Polygon ecosystem and opening up a number of exciting security opportunities for projects building on the Polygon blockchain.

What to expect from this partnership

Polygon Security Leaderboard

As the first and only security-focused ranking platform in the crypto space, CertiK’s Security Leaderboard will offer a one-stop shop for project-based security insights for the Polygon community. This includes community driven alerts to notify the ecosystem of any potential vulnerabilities for Polygon projects.

The CertiK Security Leaderboard makes our security expertise free and accessible to everyone. We want to enable a safe, transparent ecosystem for the Polygon community. A major step towards this goal is giving the community the tools they need to conduct their own research into projects.

Now integrated with Coinmarketcap, and soon with CoinGecko, the Security Leaderboard will provide the Polygon community with a one-stop-shop for critical security information, including:

  • Real-time community alerts
  • Transparent audit result and resources
  • Real-time security scoring of projects via Skynet

Here is an example of the customized Leaderboard previously developed by CertiK for Binance Smart Chain:

Skynet Integrations with Polygon

Skynet is CertiK’s proprietary technology that conducts real-time monitoring and analysis of contracts and notifies projects anytime it detects security risks.

With the partnership with Polygon, CertiK Skynet will be providing a comprehensive overview of a Polygon project’s real-time risk with easily-digestible visuals and making it easy to see where a DeFi platform is excelling and where it may be falling short.

By integrating Skynet on Polygon, the leading Polygon projects will have the access to Skynet’s 24/7 real-time security intelligence engine, offering:

  • Real-time monitoring of contracts
  • Security scoring across 6 key factors
  • Risk and incident notification
  • Polygon chain integration

Here is an example of Skynet integrated with Sandbox, which recently announced its migration to the Polygon blockchain this summer.
