An e-signature or electronic signature is a legal way to get consent or approval on electronic documents or forms. It replaces the slower, paper based signature in virtually any process.
Many industries benefit from significant financial savings and excellent customer service delivery, by adopting e-signature processes.
Electronic signatures legally capture the signatory’s intent to be bound by the terms of the signed document.
E-sign’s advanced and robust security means that all digital signatures are verifiable, as the E-Sign platform and website are 100% secure via 256bit SSL encryption, meaning your data is protected and your signatures above suspicion.

Our advanced electronic signature technology provides users with a high level of trust and assurance for the digital transactions of documents because they associate a signer with a document in a recorded transaction in the format of a coded message through specific Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) protocols.
Advanced electronic signatures (eIDAS Article 3) meet the following criteria:

Providers such as E-Sign associate a signer with a document in a recorded transaction via a coded message through specific PKI protocols. The PKI protocols require the provider to use a mathematical algorithm that generates a public and private key for each document transaction.
When a person e-signs a document, the signature is created using the signer’s private key, which is always securely restored by the signer. The mathematical algorithm used by E-Sign acts like a cipher, creating data matching the signed document, called a hash, and encrypting that data as an advanced electronic signature.
When a document is sent via E-Sign the signer uses the public key to decrypt the signature via cypher. If the hash values are equal, then the signature is valid.
E-Sign provides the highest level of security and universal acceptance for the digital transactions of documents. It’s also really quick and easy to use, allowing you to send and track documents efficiently and effectively. E-Sign’s electronic signature software creates a digital fingerprint with a randomness of 1 in 62 billion, ensuring no one can fake it.
E-sign’s incredible security means that all digital signatures are verifiable, as the E-Sign platform and website are 100% secure via 256bit SSL encryption, meaning your data is protected and your signatures above suspicion.
