Electronic Signature Security

Across all industries, security has become a growing priority in recent years. Just as the computer age has forever changed the way we live, work and play, it also has created new vulnerabilities that criminals can use to turn our very identity to their own gain.

Many believe that electronic signature capture products, will ultimately be the "magic bullet" that ends identity-based fraud once and for all. By digitally capturing not just the signature but the act of signing itself, electronic signatures raise the bar on those who would unlawfully assume our identity. And by providing patented authentication tools to electronically compare a signature against all previous signings, eSignature technology far exceeds the human eye in its ability to verify identity. An eSignature is legally binding and inseparable from its corresponding document; attempts to alter it in any way render the eDocument invalid.

Security capabilities of electronic signature capture products range from simple to elaborate. By integrating signature and fingerprint capture into a single ID-unit, takes a once complex application and makes them simpler and easier to deploy. Additional biometric information layers such as hand/face geometry or iris scans can tighten security even further.
