IT consultancy Araza has signed an exclusive deal to bring South Africa's security solutions provider LawTrust to the Australian market.
The Melbourne-based firm will have access to all of LawTrust's solutions covering device certificates, biometrics, signing solutions, encryption, smart ID card among others.
Araza will initially work on implementing the SigningHub, which according to the company provides a quick and user-friendly digital signing platform for sending, viewing and returning signed e-documents.
The cloud-based solution offers a secure mechanism for sending and receiving sensitive documents, with a full audit trail and proof of delivery.
With a focus on Australian government and business, Araza will focus on identity, compliance and enablement, using information security to "create the opportunity for less risk, better control and faster business".
"What a fantastic opportunity to partner with an innovation leader," said Victoria Kluth, CEO of Araza. "This will complement Araza’s cyber security practice with an added bonus of supporting a woman-led company. This confirms our commitment to support women in cyber."
Established in 2006 in Pretoria, LawTrust specialises in security solutions that builds authenticity, accountability and privacy in data messages. It has offices in Pretoria and Cape Town in South Africa and is also present in Australia.
"We believe that the best way to assist new Australian customers is via partnership," said Christi Maherry, CEO of LawTrust. "Araza is the perfect systems integrator for the LawTrust suite of products."
