AbsoluteProof provides authentication and data integrity assurance to Registration Gateway customers.
Reston, VA – September 1, 2011 — Surety, LLC, the leading provider of digital protection solutions, and SRC Solutions, Inc., a provider of technologies for improved productivity and profitability for educational, government and private industry customers, announced their partnership to aid student registration processes for local school districts. Under the agreement, SRC Solutions has integrated Surety's AbsoluteProof Service into its Registration Gateway system, SRC's flagship offering that is designed to streamline the student registration process, eliminate paper, minimize data inaccuracies and reduce administrative time and costs.
The integration enables school districts to prove the authenticity of their electronic student records should they ever be legally challenged. AbsoluteProof digitally timestamps (or "seals") each student record, capturing the exact time and date it was created, and providing an independent means to prove that the records have not been changed or altered since the time they were "sealed." This sealing process allows records and their data to be protected for the entirety of their existence. The SRC and Surety partnership is already providing systems and services to multiple school districts in all major markets and geographies throughout the country.
"Electronic record systems have been deployed by all types of businesses over the years, and school districts are no exception," said Jim O’Connor, president and CEO of Surety. "One thing all of these systems share, regardless of industry, is the need for effective, long-term and independent electronic data integrity protection controls. We’re thrilled to be working with SRC Solutions, who recognizes this need, and is using AbsoluteProof in its Registration Gateway solution to provide its customers with the best available solution."
By partnering with Surety, data and information that is collected and stored within Registration Gateway, such as a student's personal and educational track records and supporting documents (which typically can equal over 200 pages of hard copy documents over the course of an undergraduate education), will be recorded in a paperless environment with its integrity maintained. AbsoluteProof allows users of the system, such as school administrators and student guardians, to be certain of and assured in the fact that the data and records are collectively recorded and secured in a reliable environment, and have not been altered – maliciously or inadvertently – since their creation.
"Proper data integrity protection controls are essential in making a paperless environment perform flawlessly," said Patrick Maher, Founder and CEO of SRC Solutions, Inc. "Surety's AbsoluteProof provides Registration Gateway customers with the necessary controls, and allows all parties within the education system, such as guardians, teachers, and administrators to collaborate, and successfully record and monitor the careers of their students."
