VIENNA - Connecting Software, a provider of synchronization and integration software, has released a new solution that seals documents in Microsoft SharePoint. CB Digital Seal for SharePoint is a ready-to-use add-on that engages blockchain technology to seal documents.
CB Digital Seal for SharePoint can be applied to PDFs (reports, invoices and receipts, contracts and paychecks, certificates, etc.), emails, machine or sensor data, software code, faxes, SMS, digital processes, CAD/CAM files, image files, music, and video. The innovative solution prevents data fraud, ensures full data auditability and integrity, and accelerates business data protection compliance.
CB Digital Seal for SharePoint easily proves the authenticity of a document and protects intellectual property rights. It also allows more efficient legal and financial audits by verifying whether a file was changed with one click. Anyone—from business and public organizations to individuals like controllers and testers, even artists—can leverage the power of blockchain technology without the need to learn it, via the familiar SharePoint environment.
“With increased digital interaction and document flow, trust has become a new currency online. CB Digital Seal for Microsoft SharePoint uses an amazing technology—blockchain—to prove data compliance and authenticity and help organizations and individuals become more trusted online. The solution can be used by companies, the public sector, industrial producers, and auditors for their daily needs to ensure document integrity in SharePoint and solve their business challenges,” said Thomas Berndorfer, CEO for Connecting Software.
This solution is as an add-on to SharePoint, the Microsoft document management and team collaboration platform. It allows users to seal files by using blockchain technology with a click of a button. Hassle-free document verification happens with just one more click. Users continue working in SharePoint, and the solution does the rest.
No sensitive data is transferred to blockchain—only hashes, or a given document’s unique digital fingerprint. CB Digital Seal for SharePoint enables up to 1 million transactions per second for less than 1 cent per transaction, much cheaper than other solutions.
“Microsoft SharePoint empowers teams with a dynamic and productive platform. SharePoint, combined with Connecting Software’s CB Digital Seal, lets teams share content, knowledge and applications securely inside and outside their organization, helping to ensure data integrity and business continuity,” said Mike Ammerlaan, director, Microsoft 365 Ecosystem at Microsoft Corp
CB Digital Seal for SharePoint helps organizations ensure compliance with data regulations, including GDPR, CCPA, HIPAA, SOX, New York’s SHIELD act, and it assists with protecting intellectual property. The solution works with SharePoint Online, Microsoft 365 and on-premises SharePoint (2010, 2013, 2016, 2019). It will be expanded to seal Office documents (Word, Excel, and PowerPoint).
