Our Story

In 2018, the topic of “fake news” and “deepfakes” was emerging as a growing problem in news, across the internet, and in people’s everyday personal and business lives.

With backgrounds in data storage, Nicos Vekiarides, John Bates and Mark Morley were always working on better, faster, cheaper and more secure ways to store data.  

Using their expertise in this area, they identified an emerging need for a solution that could discern the authenticity of 

assets stored, solving targeted problems within business sectors reliant on media like photos, videos or documents as a part of their business functions.

This solution would take a great first step so that people can actually understand what’s authentic, what might have been tampered with, and start to solve this growing epidemic.

With that, the idea to build the Attestiv platform technology was born.
