The UK Land Registry and IBM have signed a three-year multimillion-pound contract for Big Blue to deliver a Land Registry e-security system for all of its web-based services.
IBM's technology will be used to protect Land Registry's web data on property across England and Wales.
The deal will include secure user access to the organisation’s new portal-based website, document authentication programme and a secure system of e-signatures for Land Registry's electronic conveyancing programme.
IBM will act as the systems integrator for the project, which will use technology supplied by Entrust and ActivIdentity.
Ted Beardsall, deputy chief executive and director for business development at Land Registry, said, "Land Registry places a huge amount of importance on the reliability, robustness and security of its IT infrastructure and systems. IBM demonstrated its committed approach with a technical solution and value for money throughout the procurement exercise."
There is an option to extend the contract by a further two years.
