Our Story

In November 2016, the Evident Proof team – led by the ex-Microsoft UK Chief Technology Officer and Innovation Director, Adrian Clarke – started work to produce a solution that solves the one consistent problem facing all companies, leaders of enterprise and individual's alike. That is, the integrity of data.
With the amount of data produced growing exponentially each year, new data standards, laws and attacks are making the need to prove the integrity of that data more and more important. Existing databases are hackable and retrospectively changeable. They are not a good source of truth and proof.
Immutably proving data integrity has never been more important and has always been difficult to achieve. Until now.



Our Vison

Evident Proof provides Immutable Proof as a Service (IPAAS).
Using Evident Proof's bespoke API’s, organisations can instantly store sensitive data within an immutable and unhackable private and public blockchain, improve data processes, enable immediate data compliance with regulations such as GDPR and generate 100% verifiable proof and court-ready evidence to prove compliance at the press of a button.
