Surety Announces Customer Growth, Asia-Pacific Expansion and Management Team Hires
With a client roster that already includes global FORTUNE 500 corporations, Surety experienced 146 percent customer growth in 2008, its largest increase in 12 years. Surety is helping these mid-size and large enterprises across a variety of industries protect their intellectual property, mitigate risk associated with electronic records and prove the authenticity of electronic files in support of compliance and E-Discovery initiatives.
Additionally, Surety’s increased presence in Korea is expected to support additional growth in 2009, not only in Korea but across the Asia-Pacific region. Demand for digital timestamps and content authentication capabilities in Korea has grown significantly as organizations work to comply with a 2006 Korean regulation aimed at reducing the amount of paper used in the country and saving Korea’s limited natural resources. The regulation, called the Certified e-Document Authority (CeDA), sets out parameters for the protection of electronic records in order to promote the use of electronic documents and simplify business processes by going paperless. Using trusted time-stamping solutions such as Surety’s AbsoluteProof data integrity service, Korean organizations can prove that their electronic documents have not been altered or tampered at any point during their lifecycle, thus ensuring data authenticity and providing enhanced peace of mind.
