What is data integrity?
Maybe you have heard a lot of buzz about it, but do you know the exact meaning of data integrity? Let's start right there. Let's define data integrity.
Data integrity is the property of the data that ensures that no one has tampered with it and that the data is, therefore, trustworthy.
What does this data integrity definition imply? That data needs to be accurate, complete, and consistent. Moreover, there needs to be a way to prove it. That's the fundamental point: integrity of data means data that I can trust because I can show no one altered it without my permission and knowledge.
Having a solution that ensures data integrity is crucial for the pharma and healthcare industries, who were the earliest adopters.
Other industries like financial services and software development are now catching up as they want to make sure they have untampered:
Machine or sensor data
Invoices and receipts
PDFs and other Documents
Why is data integrity important?
Regulation compliance has grown increasingly relevant and time-consuming for companies across the globe with regulations like HIPAA, SOX, GDPR, ISO 9000, and even routine audits becoming part of companies' day-to-day business.
Many organizations look for a solution to prove the integrity of documents and data in an efficient and cost-effective way. They want to ensure trust for their business from regulators and also from clients and partners. To ensure this trust in their business, they need reliable data that they can trust.

How will it work once the system is in place? In the CRM, DMS, or ERP system, you click the document that you want to seal. Our Smart Sealing system creates a hash, which a unique seal for the document. It establishes that it had specific content and appearance at the moment of sealing.
When you want to verify data integrity, what the system will verify is the hash that is safe in the blockchain.
