New York, NY | Palo Alto, CA (USA), April 25, 2013 -- Parity Energy, the innovative provider of electronic and voice brokerage services for options on natural gas and crude oil, announced it has selected Guardtime for long term archiving of voice messaging.
Parity Energy Chief Executive Charles Reyl said: “Dodd Frank regulations put in place new rules for archiving voice communications. Guardtime’s KSI state-of-the-art technology allows us to adapt to the new regulatory environment and guarantee the integrity of our voice archives without resorting to outdated hardware-based solutions.”
Guardtime CEO Mike Gault commented: “We are thrilled to have Parity Energy as our first Wall Street customer. Today’s archiving solutions were designed almost a century ago and are still based on the same outdated approach – by securing the data in tamper-evident physical hardware it is possible to authenticate the data inside. By using Guardtime’s KSI technology in combination with modern object store storage it is possible to do everything in software giving ten times performance improvement at one tenth of the cost of traditional EMC hardware solutions.”
