In November 2019, Ascertia launched its Winter update of SigningHub (version 7.7.6). This release includes several administrative enhancements as well as additional local signing options.
This is one of the most common questions we are asked. There is a clear difference between electronic signatures and digital signatures though, and confusingly digital signatures can be referred to as electronic signatures which does not help matters.
So what is the difference?
Digital signatures must provide a way to authenticate the signer’s identity.
This is done through the use of a unique PKI signing key for each user (PKI stands for Public Key Infrastructure, a technical framework of encryption and cybersecurity) and an associated digital certificate which acts as a digital identity embedded into every signature.
In August 2019, Ascertia launched its Autumn update of SigningHub (version 7.7.5). This release includes the launch of shared spaces as well as the ability for SigningHub Admins to enforce a change of password and additional control features for Enterprise Admins.
In June 2019, Ascertia launched its Summer update of SigningHub (version 7.7.4). This release includes the launch of SigningHub lite, which provides a pure e-signing experience. Other updated features include improved logging options and the ability to push registered users and their certificates to the ADSS CSP Service.
Because of their organisational structure charities, community groups and social enterprises are usually highly collaborative with members, volunteers, group leaders, investors and trustees all having an influence on decision making.
