RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Surety, LLC, the leading provider of data integrity solutions, today announced a reseller agreement with major Korean-based IT services company LG CNS. Under the terms of the agreement, LG CNS will integrate Surety’s AbsoluteProof service into third-party electronic record archive systems to Seal electronic documents sent to them by its LG operating companies. As the Korean government increases its focus on e-business and the realization of paperless and simplified business processes, AbsoluteProof will enable users to ensure the security and litigation-readiness of their electronic documents.
In 2006, the Korean government refined the regulations and revised laws on certified e-document authority (CeDA) to promote the use of electronic documents. As Korea’s number two operator for CeDA, LG CNS is transforming large-scale archives into electronic documents to help Korea realize cost savings and simplified business processes associated with the paperless office. Surety’s AbsoluteProof will enable LG CNS to ensure that electronic documents have not been altered or tampered in any way at any point during their lifecycles.
As an affiliate company of LG Corporation, LG CNS is Korea’s largest IT service provider and has implemented a number of large-scale public IT infrastructure projects and played a major role in the Korean government’s e-Korea initiative. Through the partnership, LG CNS and Surety will work together to co-market, integrate and implement Surety’s AbsoluteProof data integrity service to end users and CeDA providers in South Korea and to LG CNS’ affiliates worldwide, including LG, GS and LS.
“The partnership with LG CNS underscores an important worldwide trend. As more governments and organizations move to electronic archiving in support of green initiatives and to save costs and improve efficiencies, data integrity controls become paramount," said Tom Klaff, CEO, Surety, LLC. "LG CNS holds a leadership position in this market, having well established relationships with the LG Group companies as well as with a broad range of public and private companies. The combination of AbsoluteProof with LG CNS's expertise will constitute a powerful one-stop-shop as e-business initiatives such as CeDA gain momentum and increase the need for content security."
