RKVST Releases Blockchain-Backed Solution to Verify the Authenticity of Data

RKVST, a provider of provenance-as-a-service, is introducing Instaproof, enabling companies to get the information they need to decide what data to trust.

With RKVST Instaproof anyone can easily check the file they are working with by dragging it onto Instaproof to verify its provenance. If the file has been registered with RKVST, the provenance information displayed can be used to decide which files to trust.

Any file can be registered with RKVST using a free account to create a strong, verifiable, portable provenance record of who did what when, and provide proof of origin and authenticity.

RKVST adds transparency and traceability to data wherever it is stored, both on-prem and in the cloud. Whether on Dropbox, OneDrive or Google Drive, data can be instantly verified by partners, suppliers, and customers.

"Most of the data businesses use today comes from outside the secure boundaries of the organization and lacks the integrity metadata needed to prove origin, provenance and authenticity. RKVST is a game-changer for organizations that need to validate and authenticate data to make informed decisions,” said Rusty Cumpston, CEO, RKVST. “Think how a doctored photo could lead media to mistakenly report false information, or how incorrect data could lead a bank or its customers to lose significant money. RKVST Instaproof offers a simple, user-friendly drag and drop process to instantly verify the authenticity of any file, eliminating the time-wasting, expensive and error-prone processes employed today. It quickly and simply gives organizations the information they need to decide what data to trust and the confidence they require to make critical decisions based on that data."

Building on the principles of transparency and integrity coming from the distributed ledger space there are now several open standards efforts aiming to address the issue of trustworthy data including the Coalition for Content Provenance and Authenticity (C2PA); Content Authenticity Initiative (CAI); and the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) Supply Chain Integrity, Transparency and Trust (SCITT) Working Group.

RKVST supports the development of these standards that will make it simple to add provenance, authenticity, and transparency to any data.
