Digital Signature SaaS Solution Now Available

Wednesday, 25 August 2010

CoSign® digital signatures now available as SaaS for secure transactions and faster sales execution.

San Francisco, California August 25, 2010 – A SaaS (Software as a Service) provided by Secured Signing will now enable PKI-based (public key infrastructure) secured signing transactions using ARX’s CoSign digital signatures. With CoSign digital signatures integrated within the SaaS offering, Secured Signing customers gain numerous benefits including the ability to sign and verify signatures in a non-proprietary format (meaning their signature may be used and verified in all major file formats), as well as faster sales cycles, expedited business processes and saved organisational costs.

With CoSign powering their SaaS solution, Secured Signing offers a variety of signing services including the ability for registered users to upload a document, sign it digitally and route it online to other parties. Also offered is the capability to generate signing workflows that includes sending invitations to all parties involved in the signing process. Moreover, this digital signature SaaS requires no software installation.

Secured Signing offers a free trial of the digital signature SaaS.

Today’s business processes are largely electronic (including those in organizations that haven’t invested in business automation suites like Microsoft® SharePoint®). Documents, forms, and reports begin their lifecycle in an electronic format such as a Word or PDF document, and remain electronic until the signature approval stage. With CoSign digital signatures, business processes can remain fully electronic, thereby saving valuable time and reducing the hassle and cost associated with paper-based processes.

"We’re pleased to see our digital signature solution integrated within this SaaS as the engine for signing, and the more superior product that results,” said Gadi Aharoni, CEO, ARX. “It’s exciting that more users will now experience, first-hand, best-in-its-class digital signature capabilities in a SaaS form.”

With CoSign digital signatures being used for signing, users receive an individual signing key which is protected by the CoSign device, giving each user exclusive access to his/her signing key. This is not the case with Adobe’s digital signature service, for example, where users are not given exclusive access to their keys.

“We are proud to offer a legally binding, and secure digital signature service online to companies of all sizes and their business associates,” said Mike Eyal, CEO, Secured Signing. “With CoSign, we’re able to provide a type of flexibility that has a truly powerful effect on business processes.”
