In the digital age, the faster you can get the true and creditable information, the faster you can make decisions. That’s why credential verification is so important.
Using decentralized, distributed ledger technology that lets users control and update information, blockchain offers a new public infrastructure for verifying credentials in a manner far more durable, secure, and convenient than relying upon a single authority. Blockchain also enables anyone to own their digital assets (including credentials) for life through properties of redundancy and immutability. Anyone can verify those assets instantly, without any special software.
In response to the desire for high-stakes credentials in a digital format, content services platform provider Hyland launched Hyland Credentials, a complete system to issue official records using a blockchain-anchored format that is instantly verifiable anywhere in the world.

Key Features Highlights
Blockchain has the following features:
Lifelong vendor-independent verification
Rather than querying a vendor or government database, which could be hacked or taken down, a global blockchain can directly determine whether a credential is valid.
High Digital Document Security
By using blockchain technology, creditability of that document is assured. It can quickly verify whether the document has been tampered, whether it was actually issued by claimed authority and current status of documents.
