Leveraging blockchain and AI technologies, Attestiv’s media validation platform tracks whether media files have been altered and outlines any changes that have occurred for review by an administrator. Attestiv’s platform enables government agencies to easily authenticate important photos, videos and documents that are used in decision-making processes and allows for a higher level of trust within existing systems, facilitating more efficient and cost-effective processes. In addition, Attestiv provides customizable workflows for image and video capture to streamline data acquisition and ensure the integrity of files from the moment they are imported.
