TickSmith operates a web portal where users can source and access comprehensive historical trade and quote data for Chi-X Canada and CX2, as well as analytical reports and data produced by TickSmith, formatted for use in display and analytical applications.

“TickSmith’s TickVault platform provides a turnkey data distribution solution for marketplaces like Chi-X Canada,” said Francis Wenzel, CEO of TickSmith. “It has proven itself by managing petabytes of data and will easily scale to accommodate Chi-X Canada’s continued growth.”

TickVault is provided as a complete platform, as a service, or managed and installed at client sites. It is ideal for exchanges, trading networks, data vendors and regulators who need to manage and extract value from large amounts of financial data.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
