Description

Existing solutions injecting metadata into documents take time and change documents format and readability. The French company found the way to inject trusted metadata into files without changing their format and readability. Files are timestamped in real time and their unique hash is anchored by default on the bitcoin blockchain to prove the existence of the file on a given date. By sealing proofs of integrity and authenticity in documents, people can be sure that the document is an unmodified original and know the author of it. The company also adds tags to facilitate search and allows cryptographic linking between files (versioning, appendix). They have three solutions, using the same technology, depending on the clients' needs : - the SME can implement its technology in an IT System or back office. It allows to sign, certify and secure business processes and easily verify integrity and authenticity for traceability requirements. This can be usefull for compliance and audit, inventory and traceability, repair tracking, and maritime e-release. - The SME has applications to secure corporate communication : press release, financial communication, pictures. - The SME has a SaaS (software as a service) offer to digitally sign files.The signatures are then at the “advanced” level of the eIDAS European regulation.This can be usefull for proof of receipt, proof of consent and contract. The company is looking to develop its business abroad, with a special interest for Germany, Switzerland, Italy and UK. The SME offers license agreements for its standard ready to use applications, licence & technical cooperation agreements for clients willing to integrate the technology within their own processes, and service agreements for clients interested in its software as a service offer.

Advantages and innovations

Blockchain is a tamper-resistant and distributed ledger that do not rely on central trusted third party. Documents or processes can be audited on request; internally, with partners or regarding the regulator. The true innovation of this French company is that their patented technology is able to quickly protect and enrich files without changing its appearance and format. Other existing solutions injecting metadata into documents take time and change documents format and readability. With the solution of this French company, it is also possible to add tags to facilitate search and allows cryptographic linking between files (versioning, appendix …).

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
