Integration enables KineMatik customers to achieve paperless knowledge capture combined with electronic record authenticity protection
Reston, VA – April 24, 2012 -- Surety, LLC, the leading provider of data integrity protection solutions, and KineMatik, a global leader in R&D collaboration and knowledge management tools, announced today the integration of Surety’s AbsoluteProof data integrity service into KineMatik’s web-based, collaborative R&D lab management system. The combined solution enables R&D organizations in various sectors including government, academia and industry to achieve efficient paperless knowledge capture and protection of their scientific intellectual property (IP) throughout the research and development lifecycle.
KineMatik’s Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) facilitates increased efficiencies among researchers and more effective management of R&D by integrating the strategic, operational, knowledge and data management processes inherent in the R&D environment. The integration of the AbsoluteProof Service into KineMatik’s platform provides a seamless way for its customers to protect the integrity and prove the authenticity of their electronic records by generating independently verifiable evidence of exactly what electronic records were created and when. This proof is central to the customer’s ability to protect their critical scientific and research-based IP and to ensure compliance with regulatory mandates.
AbsoluteProof applies a tamper-evident, digital “seal” to each record in the lab management system, providing long-term, independent and standards-compliant proof that the content existed at a particular point in time and has not been altered since. Because of its independence and long-lasting protection, the AbsoluteProof Service enables organizations to legally defend the authenticity and ownership of their electronic data for the life of the records.
“As organizations move from paper to electronic-based R&D environments, it is essential for these companies to be able to prove the authenticity of their electronic records if ever challenged,” said Jim O’Connor, president and CEO of Surety. “By integrating Surety’s AbsoluteProof technology into their ELN, KineMatik can now offer its customers a solution that puts them in the best possible position to defend their IP and comply with regulatory mandates.”
“Our customers came to us with the need for added IP protection,” said Aaron Norman, SVP of operations at KineMatik. “With the AbsoluteProof technology built into our ELN, our customer’s receive the industry’s strongest, most secure solution for creating, managing, storing and sharing critical experiment data, which is the lifeblood of their organization.”
