“iPads are the perfect device for signing documents. Our advanced digital signatures provide long-term verifiability because we use the strongest algorithms and embedded cryptographic timestamps and validation information"
London (PRWEB UK) 18 September 2012
Ascertia today announced the release of a brand new app for viewing and e-signing documents on an Apple iPad using strong PKI credentials.
The free “SigningHub app” is part of the Ascertia’s effort to make it easy to e-sign any type of document from any location.
The app is integrated with Ascertia’s cloud-based SigningHub service. Together it is an ideal solution for e-signing sales agreements, legal contracts, insurance forms, internal admin and HR documents; in fact anything which previously required an ink signature can now use SigningHub electronic signatures, thereby cutting expensive printing, delivery and scanning costs.
Users draw their biometric hand signature using their finger or stylus. Unlike other solutions however SigningHub then goes a step further by securing the biometric signatures with an advanced PKI-based digital signatures that are essential for financial and legal documents. Each user has a unique PKI certificate for individual level authentication.
“iPads are the perfect device for signing documents,” said Liaquat Khan, Technical Director of Ascertia. “Not only do they have a large screen for viewing documents but because of their touch screen the e-signing user experience can now be just as easy as signing on paper”.
“Our advanced digital signatures provide long-term verifiability because we use the strongest algorithms and embedded cryptographic timestamps,” he added.
Key features of the SigningHub iPad app include:
- Users are notified when it is their turn to sign a document
- Documents can be easily reviewed and signed anytime, anywhere
- Users are authenticated and legally-binding individual digital signatures are created
- The security of the system is based on long-term standard PDF digital signatures to ensure that document signatures stay valid for 10+ years into the future
- PKI crypto key generation and certificate issuance is automatically handled for the user avoiding complexity and cost traditionally associated with PKI systems
The SigningHub iPad app is free for Ascertia’s SigningHub.com subscribers (even free account holders). SigningHub iPad app can also be configured to work with your privately hosted or in-house system.
