Botosoft Technologies prides itself on a culture of making life easy,” said Agbeyo Tolulope, CEO of Botosoft Technologies. “The company recognizes that forgery is rampant because document verification is difficult; if verifications were made easy, forgery would be contained and eventually eradicated.”

With the prevailing problems associated with document security in organizations, Botosoft in collaboration with HID Global, a worldwide leader in trusted identity solutions, has developed the world’s most advanced document security solution called Botoseal™, a solution with physical attributes and security features needed to develop and implement a successful document security strategy in any organization. The Botoseal™ solution comprises three interconnected modules of secure holographic seal, Smartsign application and Verifier application.

“Partnering with Botosoft on this innovative solution is a natural extension of HID Global’s commitment to add trust to a wide range of new use cases. HID Trusted Tag Services, coupled with Botoseal, ensures the authenticity of legal documents to combat counterfeiting,” said Mark Robinton, Director, Business Development & Strategic Innovation, Identification Technologies with HID Global.  “This unique solution leverages the cryptographically secure NFC tags and HID Cloud Authentication from our HID Trusted Services offering to provide peace of mind to users seeking to validate the authenticity of documents.

Botoseal™ replaces the conventional seal with a chip-embedded holographic seal, which offers unique security and physical attributes that prevent replication and hacking. This seal is tamper evident and provides absolute security on documents.

Digital signatures are impossible to forge, as opposed to traditional ink on paper. Botoseal™ Smartsign application allows you to digitally sign paper documents, thereby protecting your document and also assuring the recipients of its genuineness.  Leveraging on the NFC capabilities of smartphones, a tap of the phone on the document is all that is required to verify the document’s authenticity.

Botoseal™ Verifier application does not only seamlessly verify the authenticity of a document, but also gives the users access to tamper-evident digital copies of their document on the go. This solution offers a cost saving and efficient means of getting copies of paper documents, without the need for printers or photocopiers.

With Document control, management, and issuance being core to every business, Botoseal also features a document management platform that allows users, through a unified dashboard, to set document issuance privileges within any organization, track the usage of a document and revoke access to its use as necessary.

The introduction of Botoseal™ finally lays to rest the problem of document forgery, document doctoring, content alteration and signature falsification. It reverses the norm of easy forgery and difficult verification of document authenticity.

Botoseal™ facilitates the secure signing and seamless verification of documents authenticity with the simple tap of a smart phone.

Zimbabwe’s Mugabe Tries to Unite Fractious Party

MASVINGO, ZIMBABWE – Africa’s oldest head of state, President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe, says he has no immediate plans to step down. In fact, on Friday the Zimbabwean leader said he was not happy with some members of his ruling ZANU-PF party who are calling for him to resign.

Speaking at the official opening of the ZANU-PF annual conference in Masvingo, about 300 kilometers south of Harare, the 92-year-old leader urged his party to unite as Zimbabwe heads toward its next elections in 2018.

His party has two factions angling to succeed the Zimbabwean leader.

Mugabe accused the factions of using social media to attack each other, saying “we must not settle our issues through Facebook and Twitter.”

“There is a new culture of indiscipline in the party by some of the members who are here,” Mugabe said. “They do what they want. There is even contempt and arrogancetumwe twacho hanzi VaMugabe hatichivade, zvino zvausasavade wati zvoitwa seiko iwe pachezvako.”

In the Shona language, he says there are some who say they no longer like Mugabe. He asks them: What do you want done?

It is almost taboo in ZANU-PF to discuss who will replace Mugabe, who has been at the helm of Zimbabwe since it won independence from Great Britain in 1980.

But with Zimbabwe’s collapsed economy showing no signs of life, and with the president set to turn 93 in February, such talk has begun – even though the president is choosing not to hear.
