of internet and cloud computing is taking the information industry on a journey
that mirrors Europe’s transformation from the medieval period to the
Renaissance. Ensuring security and minimising risk is still important, but how that is achieved must
change. Document level security provided by PKI based digital
signatures ensure the authenticity and reliability of information
independently of corporate networks and systems.
Renaissance in Europe, fuelled by the free flow of ideas and new technology broke down
medieval walled cities and created the modern city as we know it. Renaissance
cities thrived on agility and reducing barriers to commerce - like gates that
literally choked the number of people that could come and go inside a walled
city. As the walls came down, the need for security did not go away but how it
was achieved certainly changed. It became important to secure individual
buildings, rooms and even strong boxes and safes rather than the whole town.
same push for agility and flexibility means modern organisations must increasingly open up
their networks and systems to engage directly with customers and the community.
With this change must come a different approach to how information is kept
secure. When documents are exchanged in electronic form, methods to provide
simple, unambiguous confidence in the authenticity and reliability of these
documents is vital.
the value of PKI based digital signatures and the risk of using signature
images or simple electronic signatures is important in this context.
digitally signature is invalidated if anything in the document changes. A
digital signature cannot be copied to another document. The identity of the
person who signed can be checked and objectively verified. The signed document
is self-contained and standards based providing independence, long term
reliability and portable security. Anyone opening the signed document can be
confident it is reliable and authentic without needing to have access to your
network or document management system.
document centric reliability and authenticity you get with a PKI digital
signature is a core capability for the information renaissance.
document signed with Secured Signing uses a personal PKI digital signature
unique to the individual signing and the document being signed. People can sign
anywhere, anytime and using any device.
There is no need to buy expensive hardware and software and commit to
complex implementation projects. You
just create and account and pay for the documents you sign, when you sign them.
