Advanced security technologies to be integrated into document and content management solutions

Utimaco Safeware has announced the signing of a new UK systems integrator Serengeti Systems in order to extend the reach of its security technologies into the public sector. An industry leader in document and content management, Oracle preferred solution provider Serengeti, provides advanced software solutions for industries such as government, healthcare and insurance, helping them to streamline business processes and achieve effective end to end management of documents. Utimaco is a principal European technology manufacturer of professional IT security solutions.

Based just outside Ipswich, Serengeti will integrate Utimaco’s security technology into its own solutions, marketing to customers nationwide. Primarily focusing on Utimaco’s digital transaction security product range, Serengeti will utilise the SafeGuard Toolkit to integrate aspects such as digital signatures and encryption into its existing software products, providing a new secure dimension to document and content management. Serengeti will also be in the position to offer secure public key enabled applications by incorporating Utimaco’s SafeGuard PKI Light and PKI Enterprise. In addition, personal device security solutions will be available to Serengeti customers for extending document security to laptops, PDAs and other mobile devices.

Werner Neudecker, managing director at Serengeti Systems explains, “The security of information produced or duplicated electronically is one of the foremost concerns for today’s organisations. When working with documents, access control, high-level security and the ability to validate and authenticate the information’s history all become very important. For example, in the insurance industry, any tampering with cover notes for high ticket items could result in substantial financial losses for either the insured or the insurer. In the public sector electronic health records need to be controlled by and exchanged between different organisations with absolute security.”

He continued: “This exciting new venture with Utimaco will further heighten our capabilities and therefore enhance what we are able to offer customers in terms of comprehensive, custom-made solutions.”

The partnership with Serengeti Systems will provide new scope for Utimaco. Jackie Groves, managing director of Utimaco Safeware Ltd. commented, “Serengeti’s excellent reputation in providing systems for both public sector companies and corporate markets precedes them. This focus was of particular interest to Utimaco as it is somewhat different to our traditional markets and will allow us further penetration into these sectors.”
