With the acceleration of document scanning and the constant increase in the number of digital assets, there is also the risk of altering digital content, it can be difficult to prove the integrity of a document or of a digital asset. Therefore, the certified timestamping becomes a necessity.
A certified timestamp and secure archiving can effectively guarantee that when a digital document is created, it becomes the equivalent of an original paper document with certified creation date and time. Time-stamped documents or their copies held by you or by third parties can be compared, from the point of view of their integrity, to the original time-stamped certified and archived at a trusted third party and thus proven true.
Invoices, signed contracts, medical notes, pricing information, graphics, stock values, measurements, drawings, collaborative work efforts, strategic documents, personal data notes, can all be timestamped and archived to possess an unforgeable content and serve as an evidence for regulation and litigation purposes.
