TOPPAN FORMS Launches LGWAN-ASP Service for Municipal Governments to Implement Safe, Low-Cost Data Transfer
Supporting promotion of municipal governments’ e-administration and improvement of information security

September 27, 2017

DigitalHybrid Company TOPPAN FORMS CO., LTD. (hereinafter "TOPPAN FORMS") is pleased to announce that it will fully launch the TF data transfer system (hereinafter "this service"), an ASP service for transferring data safely and at low cost supporting the Municipal Government Wide Area Network (LGWAN).
This service is a LGWAN-ASP service that transfers data, including personal information, in a secure environment when TOPPAN FORMS undertakes the data print service (DPS) and BPO. Whereas a recording medium where the data was stored used to be transported in a secure delivery, the data is now encrypted and transferred via LGWAN’s secure network. This service shortens the time taken to deliver the data, increases the security and reduces the cost.

Data transfer using a recording medium & Data transfer using the TF data transfer system

Background

LGWAN is a secure network that interconnects municipal governments exclusively for public administration. Municipal governments have become more aware of information security since the introduction of the Social Security and Tax Number System in January 2016. The My Number Portal entered full operation this autumn and one-stop childcare services and public fund settlement services are scheduled to be launched, accelerating the spread of e-administration promoted by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications.
This has increased the utilization of LGWAN among autonomous bodies and encouraged the service providers to autonomous bodies to accelerate the development and provision of their ASP services in various fields. TOPPAN FORMS has developed this service to solve issues in data transfer when undertaking DPS or BPO. The Setagata City Hall in Tokyo has already adopted this service for DPS and BPO concerning the current state reports of child allowance, contributing to increased operation efficiency.

Features

  • 1. Safe, reliable and secure data transfer
    A secure environment is established by using HULFT-WebFileTransfer provided by Saison Information Systems Co., Ltd. as middleware to transfer the data from LGWAN to TOPPAN FORMS’ group data center.
  • 2. No need to transport a medium where the data is stored
    Transmitting the data via Web browser using a PC connected to LGWAN assures safe, high-speed transfer. Moreover, as stored media used for data are no longer necessary, there is no physical risk of loss or erroneous or delayed delivery.
  • 3. Highly versatile
    As it can be used by simply logging onto the Web browser on a PC connected to LGWAN, it is easy to introduce the service. Moreover, it can be applied to all services involving data transfer.

Future development

TOPPAN FORMS will promote sales by proposing the service with the aim of introducing it to 100 municipal governments. Moreover, it will develop and provide new LGWAN-ASP services by making the Web services and similar that are currently provided to the private companies compatible with LGWAN.
