Mountainview, CA, September 24, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- GuardTime (http://www.guardtime.com), creator of the patented Keyless Signature technology used to provide indisputable proof of time, origin, and integrity for electronic information, today announced that its Keyless Signatures will be adopted by ARKIBIZ, a leader in cloud-based information management solutions aimed at providing proof of data and transaction integrity for e-documents and records management.
Up to 80% of today’s business information is created and managed in unstructured form; it is expected to rise to 90% or more in the coming years. According to recent IDC estimates, every 5.5 years ofdata managed by enterprises will grow by a factor of 10.According to collaborative research conducted by NetApp and marketing research firm ACNielsen, ERP, CRM, and corporate emails are the leading causes of this massive growth in data, where roughly 62% of the total enterprise data is affected.
Document and records management solutions have become an essential part of the everyday IT infrastructure. However, not all organizations can invest in enterprise-level solutions such as those from vendors like IBM, Oracle, and EMC. The Ebikko solution from ARKIBIZ is a cloud-based, full multi-tenant EDRMS solution with a highly-customizable workflow module. The rich functionalities of the EDRMS are accessed seamlessly through a web browser on the desktop without the user ever having to install any software.
GuardTime’s Keyless Signature technology (http://www.guardtime.com) is used by ARKIBIZ to sign the records and archived files managed by the ARKIBIZ EDRMS solution. This provides consumers with undeniable proof of authenticity and integrity of both the process and the data. Having audit-ready, independently-verifiable data that captures all transactions and documents solves a variety of compliance issues and a host of potentially business-damaging disputes otherwise left to trust. By converting trust to proof, companies can also reduce their dependency on paper-based transactions while improving overall productivity across their entire document workflow process.
"GuardTime's innovative technology (http://www.guardtime.com) changes the game for the EDRMS market," said Steve Kucia, Director of Global Sales and Marketing, ARKIBIZ. "With the integration of Keyless Signatures in our offering, our customers gain proof of authenticity for their data and surrounding workflow, regardless of the information being stored on their disks, crossing the wire, or hosted in the cloud."
"Technologies brought to market prior to GuardTime’s patented Keyless Signatures have failed to deliver simple and lasting solutions for digital data integrity," said Mike Gault, GuardTime CEO. "There has been an unacceptable amount of reliance on the various layers of security designed to ‘trust’ the data. This issue of trust is totally exposed in the cloud, where the data itself needs to carry with it the proof of time, integrity and origin. With GuardTime’s Keyless Signature Service (http://www.guardtime.com), an organization’s most valuable digital assets are assured with provable integrity regardless of where they are stored, who needs to verify them, and when."
This announcement follows a string of similar partner integration deals that include such companies as Japan’s Brother Industries, web-hosting provider Joyent, whose customers include Twitter and LinkedIn, and cloud-based eDiscovery service provider, Cernam.
ARKIBIZ assists companies in the management of their information according to their business lifecycles, enabling them to comply with local and international standards and regulations. ARKIBIZ provides cloud-based data management solutions for records, documents, business process information, and archives. ARKIBIZ Ebikko solution platform is sold by over 40 resellers in more than 10 countries.
A Red Herring Global 100 Winner and Frost & Sullivan Product Innovation Award Winner, GuardTime was founded with the goal of solving one of the biggest problems in computing: trust. GuardTime’s Keyless Signatures provide proof of data integrity, signing authority, and time. The verification of the signature can be done offline without the reliance on keys, secrets, or the existence of a trusted third party. GuardTime’s mission is to change the world to one where keyless signatures are ubiquitous and a natural part of the everyday data lifecycle, whether on disk, in transit, or in the cloud.
