Vivendi Adopts Nodle’s Click Certify for Secure Document Authentication

Simple and indisputable authentication of digital content made possible by Nodle’s blockchain-based solution, Click Certify.

Nodle, a leader in blockchain innovation and the world’s first digital trust network, has announced that Vivendi, a global giant in culture, entertainment, media, and communications, will implement Nodle’s Click Certify technology to authenticate its business documents, including press releases. This move aims to enhance the security and verifiability of Vivendi's published materials using Nodle's blockchain-based solutions.

Click Certify is a new addition to Nodle’s family of authentication tools, which already includes the ContentSign SDK, the web property, and the new Click camera mobile app, all released earlier this year and available now on iOS and Android.

Click Certify is designed to be user-friendly and allows authorized executives to quickly upload official PDFs, like press releases, through a simple drag-and-drop interface on the secure Vivendi Click Certify-enabled website. Once uploaded, the authorized executive digitally signs the transaction and initiates the publication process online.

While utilizing blockchain technology and cryptographic proofs, Click Certify ensures documents are unaltered, signed by authorized personnel, and accurately timestamped.

It also allows anyone with a signed document to verify its origin, publication date, and time.
