Both methods comply with the requirements of digitized signatures, which is drawn with the finger or scanned and added as image onto the digital document.

Unfortunately it does not collect enough legal evidence to uniquely identify the signatory, therefore we do not recommend using them for important transactions as they are not very secure and are easy to forge.

Below are a some ways to eSign documents with our solutions:

  • Biometric signature. The best alternative to the digitized type. It is the traditional handwritten signature drawn on tablets, pads or smartphones with a precision stylus capable of collecting a wealth of biometric data
  • SMS OTP. Short code sent to the signer’s mobile device to be able to eSign wherever.
  • Digital certificates. The user must hold a certificate issued by a Trust Service Provider which certifies the user’s identity.
  • Cloud signature. Users have access to their certificates anytime they wish to eSign a document.They are stored on a cloud server (HSM)
