Organisations need to prevent unauthorised change to key business documents. They also need to bind originator and approver identities into the document to provide traceability, accountability and a clear sign-off audit trail. Systems and people reading the data need to know that it is original and unchanged.
Ascertia is a world-leader in digital signature verification technology. All the major digital signature formats can be verified within various document and data formats including PDF, XML and other files, forms or emails. The Ascertia products can handle multiple signatures, detached, embedded and enveloping signatures as well as standard, timestamped and long-term signatures.
In many parts of the world there are clear legislative and regulatory requirements to archive business documents so that they can be legally admissible many years after they were created. There needs to be proof that the documents are original and unchanged, that the author and any approver is authenticated, as well as the date and time that such signing, approval and archiving occurred.
Email is a fundamental part of business life, despite the fact that it is open to many threats including phishing and SPAM. Ascertia recommends that email attachments are used to carry important information and the email is just used as the transporting envelope. PDF attachments are ideal since they can easily have digital signatures embedded within them that confirm the identity of the sender and provide good evidence and trust on multiple systems and different email clients, e.g. web-mail.
