GuardTime today officially announced its Data Audit Server, a product developed using Keyless Signature Infrastructure (KSI), a set of technologies used to prove the properties of electronic data.

Los Angeles, CA, August 13, 2011 --( GuardTime ( ) today officially announced its Data Audit Server, a product developed using Keyless Signature Infrastructure (KSI), a set of technologies used to prove the properties of electronic data. The Data Audit Server is designed to enable organizations to safeguard their most valuable or confidential data, intellectual property, applications, virtual machines, code, and logs,while residing inside the Enterprise and withinCloud infrastructures.

The complete GuardTime Keyless Signature ( ) system allows for any data item in transit, stored on disk or in the cloud, or electronically shared or running in the cloud, to be mathematically identified by the GuardTime Data Audit Server where in turn it will receive its electronicdata signatureusing the company’s patented Keyless Signature technology.

The Keyless Signature proves three things: 1) the exact time that the data was signed; 2) that the data has not been changed or tampered with since the time it was signed; and 3) who or what entity originally signed the data.

GuardTime’s Data Audit Server ( ) delivers Keyless Signatures for each file signed, where the signatures can be verified online as part of nearly any data workflow or business process, enabling organizations to make informed decisions with a mathematically-provable audit trail for all of their electronic data. This makes fraud harder to conduct and insider attacks nearly impossible to hide while strengthening the legal admissibility of all signed digital records.

Says CEO Mike Gault, "Whether you need proof of origin and time to protect your intellectual property, proof that your event logs remain intact for an upcoming eDiscovery audit, or a mechanism which provides indisputable assurance that attacks on your data and systems have not taken place, you’ll find the GuardTime Data Audit Server will meet your needs."

GuardTime’s Keyless Signature ( ) mathematically proves data integrity requiring only the use of the original data, the Keyless Signature for the data signed, and the integrity code published in the World Edition of the Financial Timesnewspaper. With these three things, a client can independently prove the integrity of any data signed by GuardTime without having to trust any third party - not even GuardTime.

"We adopted GuardTime’s Keyless Signatures for the management of digital data in extensive business applications as it is considered to be an ideal service at a very reasonable cost and extremely easy to use. The beauty of the Keyless Signature is it can assure data integrity for the life of the data. This is quite different from existing key-based services which expire and only remain valid for a limited number of years," said KunihiroYasui, the general manager of NID development group of Brother Industries, LTD.

An organization’s most valuable digital assets are finally assured with provable integrity as the solution delivers completely auditable and forensic quality logs and proof of data integrity for stored or archived data.

Available immediately, pricing for the GuardTime Data Audit Server starts at $1,000 USD per month with a starting capacity of 1 Keyless Signature per second.
