Botosoft Technologies, an award-winning Nigerian security solutions company, has launched the world’s most advanced anti-counterfeiting technology, Botoseal(TM).
The new document security solution was unveiled at the 20th Annual Conference of the United Kingdom National Recognition Information Centre (UK NARIC) held at Victoria Park Plaza, London, United Kingdom recently.
The launch had in attendance representatives from recruitment agencies, examination bodies, academia, assessment institutions and security agencies from across the world.
Speaking at the launch, Agbeyo Tolulope, CEO, Botosoft Technologies said, “Botosoft Technologies prides itself on a culture of making life easy. The company recognises that forgery is rampant because document verification is difficult; if verifications were made easy, forgery would be contained and eventually eradicated.”
According to him, with the prevailing problems associated with document security in organisations, Botosoft in collaboration with HID Global, a worldwide leader in trusted identity solutions, partnered to develop the document security solution.
Agbeyo noted that with document control, management, and issuance being core to every business, Botoseal created a document management platform that allows users, through a unified dashboard, to set document issuance privileges within any organisation, track the usage of a document and revoke access to its use as necessary.
“The introduction of Botoseal(TM) finally lays to rest the problem of document forgery, document doctoring, content alteration and signature falsification. It reverses the norm of easy forgery and difficult verification of document authenticity. Botoseal(TM) facilitates the secure signing and seamless verification of documents authenticity with the simple tap of a smart phone,” he said.
Mark Robinton, Director, Business Development & Strategic Innovation, Identification Technologies with HID Global said partnering with Botosoft on the innovative solution is a natural extension of HID Global’s commitment to add trust to a wide range of new use cases.
Robinton said, “HID Trusted Tag Services, coupled with Botoseal, ensures the authenticity of legal documents to combat counterfeiting. This unique solution leverages the cryptographically secure NFC tags and HID Cloud Authentication from our HID Trusted Services offering to provide peace of mind to users seeking to validate the authenticity of documents.”
He explained that Botoseal(TM) is a solution with physical attributes and security features needed to develop and implement a successful document security strategy in any organization.
“The Botoseal(TM) solution comprises three interconnected modules of secure holographic seal, Smartsign application and Verifier application. It replaces the conventional seal with a chip-embedded holographic seal, which offers unique security and physical attributes that prevent replication and hacking. This seal is tamper evident and provides absolute security on documents.
“Digital signatures are impossible to forge, as opposed to traditional ink on paper. Botoseal(TM) Smartsign application allows you to digitally sign paper documents, thereby protecting your document and also assuring the recipients of its genuineness. Leveraging on the NFC capabilities of smartphones, a tap of the phone on the document is all that is required to verify the document’s authenticity.
“Botoseal(TM) Verifier application does not only seamlessly verify the authenticity of a document, but also gives the users access to tamper-evident digital copies of their document on the go. This solution offers a cost saving and efficient means of getting copies of paper documents, without the need for printers or photocopiers.
Botosoft has developed solutions that help solve challenging problems with the use of cutting edge technologies. Yearly, its mobile identification and Verification system is used by Africa’s foremost examination body.
