Event Streams Icon

Event Streams

We have rebooted our user experience for Event Streams in the new Kaleido V2 UI. Integrated with our Smart Contract Management and REST API Gateway, in a couple of clicks you can connect your on-chain multi-party business logic to real-time triggered business processes, off-chain data caches, and analytics. All with reliable delivery, batching and fault-tolerance. Learn more.
MFA Icon

Multi-Factor Authentication

Our Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) support has been extended to allow all users to configure MFA on their account login regardless of plan level. Additionally, Business and Enterprise accounts can now set an MFA enforcement policy to be required by all administrators in their organization. Learn more.
Google Icon

Google Login

Users can now sign-up and login to Kaleido using a Google ID. Allows single sign-on for organizations using Google G Suite enterprise security features, as well as streamlined login for any user with a personal GMail account. Sign in.
Block Signer Vote In/Out Icon

Block Signer Vote In/Out

Kaleido makes it easy for a network member to opt out of the block signing group, then opt back in again once they are ready and have been authorized. What makes blockchain unique is that control over data replication is decentralized across different administrators, with isolated keys and data. Now individual network participants can stop their block-signing infrastructure for an extended period of time, without impacting on the resilience of the whole network. Read the blog.
Billing Dashboard Icon

New Billing Dashboard

We’ve made it easier to manage your profile, add/remove administrators to your account, track your usage, manage your subscription, and see the range of services you have access to on the Kaleido platform. Including new graphing and monthly cost projection. Learn more.

ioCash Icon

New Partner ioCash (available in the Marketplace)

Permissioned blockchain lets business networks build quickly, scale, and address enterprise security requirements. Use cases often involve exchange of digital assets and tokens. What about exchanging those with “real” fiat money? ioCash makes that easy - addressing the regulatory and technical challenges of the on-ramps and off-ramps. With Kaleido and ioCash together, having a stable coin as part of your solution has never been simpler. Read the blog.
