On 2nd January, Ascertia is launching the SigningHub Winter '17 release (v7.1). This is with many time-saving, ease of use and security enhancements to ensure a great user experience (UX).
In our latest series of blogs, we delve into a specific industry to explore how solutions such as SigningHub can strengthen document security and increase productivity. Our most recent post covered real estate .
Modern architecture is one of humanity’s marvels. As a society, we’ve conquered incredible heights and distances through the combined power of engineering, mathematics and physics.
Underpinning every new structure or building is an army of architects working relentlessly to complete the project on time and to the highest standards. These firms visualise our houses, workplaces, cultural monuments and the infrastructure we use on a daily basis.
Any estate agency would be happy with these results. And, if we’re being honest, most digital signature products deliver these outcomes.
What is often overlooked, however, is the legal implications associated with weak digital signature security.
Creating a SigningHub account is simple but provisioning hundreds or even thousands of users can be complex. This blog aims to simplify and explain the SigningHub provisioning options:
- Enterprise provisioning
- SigningHub Admin based provisioning
- Programmatic provisioning
Rod Crook, our Solutions Director, was recently asked by industry publication Fresh Business Thinking to write a guest article. Titled ‘Going digital: The benefits of digital signatures for businesses’, the article explains the advantages for organisations searching for ways to improve business efficiencies. He also offers advice around how to choose a suitable solution in a congested marketplace.
A quick background: Advanced digital signatures require each user to have their own unique signing key. The security of the system then relies on the fact that the user's private signing key is not accessible to anyone else other than the owner. If implemented properly it allows an independent judge to determine that any digital signatures produced with the user's private key must have been created by the owner and no one else - thereby delivering the "non-repudiation" property where signers can't reasonably deny the signatures they have created.
