Tokyo | Guardtime, the world’s leading provider of Keyless Signature Infrastructure (KSI™) software and solutions for validating the integrity and authenticity of digital data, announced a partnership with WingArc, the leading Japanese provider of Enterprise Information Management software, for integrating KSI capabilities into selected WingArc products.
WingArc’s “SVF PDF Archiver” is the first Enterprise-grade Digital Document Archiving solution in the Japanese market that natively takes advantage of the game-changing benefits of KSI-based data assurance for ensuring long-term integrity and non-repudiation of the archived documents, without the need for cryptographic key-management or reliance on hardware-based security measures.
Kazuo Nimura, Director of WingArc commented: “We carefully studied various verification mechanisms for our upcoming Digital Document Archiving solution, and decided to adopt KSI as it completely solves the existing PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) specific issues, such as long term archiving and hassle of key management. Aside of the functional benefits, we also considered the successful use cases of KSI in the global market, which only re-affirmed our decision to go with KSI and Guardtime.”
Takashi Yanagihara, the representative of Guardtime Japan added: “WingArc has a rich experience in development of Enterprise Information Management solutions. We are honored to have completed the KSI integration into their Digital Document Archiving product and started the collaboration in strategic sales. Our joint-goal is to further advance our digital society, and having digital documents that the stakeholders can always count on, is the cornerstone for the realization of our goal.
Most recently, Guardtime announced a partnership with Symphony Teleca for a proof-based system to secure connected car ecosystems; a strategic alliance with MTSI for delivering KSI-based solutions for US DoD and IC Clouds; and a launch of KSI services by China Telecom on its Tianyi service delivery platform.
