Another noteworthy feature of the solution is that it highly leverages of the prowess of Cloud Computing and thus is made available on a global scale. With its strong emphasis on authenticity and availability, GuardTime’s solution could act as an impetus to further impel the steady growth of Cloud Computing in the Asia Pacific region," explains Ahmad Zeffirelli Ibrahim, Research Analyst with Frost & Sullivan’s Technical Insights Practice. "As we approached the end of 2010, we witnessed the numbers of objects being stored in the cloud double from 2009. It is going to be an exciting year to further witness the healthy growth of Cloud Computing as we move through 2011," added Zeffirelli.

"Cloud computing is a subject top-of-mind for most organizations and institutions around the world," said Mike Gault, GuardTime CEO.
