Share Article

Encrypt, digitally sign and verify digital signatures on PDF documents. Great new enhancements include Digital Signature Validation, PDF/A support and OpenType fonts. This is an important upgrade for businesses that need to certify and verify the integrity of electronic documents.

Government agencies, large shipping companies, financial services companies and others that work with PDF documents will greatly benefit from these new features.

SecurSign 5 is a server-based application which encrypts, digitally signs and verifies digital signatures on PDF documents. SecurSign is designed to run in real time with other processes in an unattended environment to handle high-volume and on-demand production needs. SecurSign can also run in batch mode to encrypt, digitally sign or verify large collections of PDF documents.

NEW in SecurSign 5
*Signature Validation - detects tampering independent of Acrobat.
*PDF/A Support - Sign PDF/A documents without losing PDF/A compliance.
*OpenType Fonts - Place signature text using any OpenType font.
*2048-Bit Key Lengths for Digital Certificates

Digital signatures placed by SecurSign are compatible with the Adobe® Acrobat® Digital Signature Mechanism; and, no additional software is required to open documents or verify signatures using Adobe Acrobat, Adobe Reader or other digital signature-aware PDF viewers.

SecurSign can encrypt PDF documents to restrict the end user’s ability to edit, copy or print with 256-bit AES encryption. Other security features in SecurSign 5 allow users to set passwords to control who may view, print, or modify a document, as well as higher level passwords that control who may change security settings.

SecurSign 5 produces ISO 32000-compliant PDF files and performs optimization and cleanup routines, prior to signing, reducing file size in most instances.

"Government agencies, large shipping companies, financial services companies and others that work with PDF documents will greatly benefit from these new features," says Appligent Document Solutions' President and COO, Virginia Gavin. "SecurSign 5 provides organizations with a reliable way to sign and then validate PDF files they receive, send and store."

SecurSign 5 is available from Appligent Document Solutions directly as well as through our network of resellers and VARs. The software is available without charge to existing Appligent Document Solutions customers with current Support & Maintenance agreements.
