Today, enhanced search and discovery platform Nalytics and Evident Proof, the immutable proof seal as a service platform, announced a strategic partnership.
Nalytics will provide a fully searchable document vault to underpin Evident Proof’s Proof Seal Bundles technology. A Proof Seal Bundle is a collection of specifically defined data events that may be compiled together to form a Proof Document, known as a Proof Certificate, able to irrefutably respond to a specific legal, compliance or regulatory requirement, such as GDPR.
The partnership with Nalytics also allows organisations to formally evidence responses to Data Subject Access Requests (DSARs). GDPR has seen a proliferation of DSARs, whereby a Subject can request Access to all of the personal data being held about them within an organisation and an explanation of the purposes for which that personal data is being used — responses to DSARs being mandated within one calendar month.
Nalytics also provides a comprehensive solution for organisations to respond to DSARs, sifting the initial documents that contain the Subject’s information then providing a validation and redaction capability before zipping the final output for distribution. The partnership with Evident Proof means that those DSAR responses and the data events to create them can now be immutably proof sealed for compliance purposes on the Evident Platform.
Mac Exon-Taylor, Business Development Director at Nalytics, said “We are delighted to have the opportunity to partner with such a thought-leading company as Evident Proof. DSARs are becoming an epidemic thorn in the side of businesses. They require significant effort to properly service and we are increasingly seeing DSAR responses being formally challenged with the ICO. Allowing our customers to evidence their DSARs process and output on the Evident Proof platform is a major step forwards for compliance and risk mitigation.”
Adrian Clarke, CEO at Evident Proof, said “We are excited about this partnership with Nalytics and the value it brings to our customers. Our platform allows customers to immutably record and seal data events for subsequent evidence and validation. And now our customers will be able to quickly store, surface and examine their supporting document bundles using the powerful Nalytics finding engine.”
