BANGKOK, Thailand and PALO ALTO, Calif., Jan. 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CAT Buzz, a wholly owned subsidiary of CAT Telecom Public Company Limited, a government owned telecom in Thailand, has partnered with Guardtime and CloudSec Asia to develop solutions for the Thai market to validate the integrity of electronic documents.
"With the majority of today's document exchange being electronic, it is important to have the ability to track the document's origin as well as to ensure that the document's contents are in its original form," says Mr. Nuththinun Suksomphong, CEO of CAT Buzz.
"Guardtime's solution enables our customers to have an independently verifiable tamper-evident audit trail for all the electronic documents we create, transmit and archive."
Guardtime CEO Mike Gault added: "Dematerialization is a requirement of the day and explosion in customer interest in our electronic document solutions from all parts of the world is a testimony of that. We're thrilled to be working together with our partners in the Thai market to enable trust for electronic documents."
The Guardtime solution for securing electronic documents takes advantage of Keyless Signature technology to facilitate independent verification of the signatures and to ensure that the proof of integrity never expires. The solution is rapidly deployable on its own and incorporates KSI Desktop Signer for end-users and can complement existing document management systems to provide a completely transparent user experience for electronic document protection.
Most recently, Guardtime announced a partnership with the Philippine government to validate physical document integrity and with China Telecom, the largest fixed line telecommunications service provider in the People's Republic of China, establishing China Telecom as a Keyless Signature service provider via its Tianyi 3G platform.
