Stop data theft by fake or appropriated authentic signatures with secured digital signing processes

Digital signatures go beyond electronic versions of traditional signatures by invoking cryptographic techniques to dramatically increase security and transparency, both of which are critical in establishing a trust and legal validity. As an application of public key cryptography, digital signatures can be applied in many different settings, from a citizen filing an online tax return, to a procurement officer executing a contract with a vendor to a software developer publishing updated code.


ROI for Digital Signatures

Without effective digital signing solutions, organizations may not be able to take full advantage of efficiencies and cost reductions to be gained by automation of formerly manual signature processes, causing them to lose competitive advantage to organizations using a secure digital signature solution.

Changing Industry Digital Signing Standards

Legally accepted standards for digital signatures are constantly evolving, and can vary from region to region and for different applications, so organizations should become familiar with the specific digital signing laws that apply to their processes.

Trust Issues

Because digital signatures often need to be validated by different parties than originally signed the item, they need to convey trust across multiple domains, involving the use of trusted third parties. Many digital signing processes incorporate a timestamp, making the availability of trusted time an important ancillary requirement.
