Scalable Document Signing – From Desktop to Cloud
The need for signatures pops up in virtually every department - human resources for employee timesheets and vacation requests, finance signing off on invoices and purchase orders, legal preparing contracts, sales entering new client relationships. Printing every time you need a signature is impractical and inefficient. Fortunately, there’s a better way. Trusted digital signatures allow you to keep your entire workflow online and offer greater security than non-standardized electronic signatures.

Legally Admissible, Compliant Digital Signatures
GlobalSign digital signatures can help you meet the requirements of many national and industry-specific regulations regarding the legal acceptance of electronic signatures in place of wet ink signatures, including:
- US ESIGN (Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce)
- FDA CFR 21 Part 11
- US UETA (Uniform Electronic Transactions Act)
- US State Professional Engineering (PE) Seals

- Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX)
Deployment Options – Certificates on Hardware or Full-scale Service
GlobalSign document signing certificates and services scale to accommodate businesses of all sizes, from individuals to large enterprises. Per regulation, digital signing certificates must be stored on FIPS-compliant hardware, such as USB tokens or HSM. GlobalSign offers multiple options for this dependent on signature volume and document workflow, including a new cloud service that eliminates the need for customer-managed hardware altogether.
Certificates stored on USB tokens
Ideal for one-off signatures and lower volume signing needs, certificates are stored on portable USB tokens.
Cloud-based Digital Signing Service (no hardware needed)
Ideal for higher volume signature needs and integrating with existing document workflows, credentials are stored on cloud HSMs managed by GlobalSign.
Cloud-based Digital Signing Service
GlobalSign’s cloud-based Digital Signing Service makes digital signatures accessible to organizations through document workflow providers, creating a true end-to-end solution and lowering barriers such as cost, hardware requirements, maintenance, and internal expertise.
Bringing together all the cryptographic components necessary to offer the most feature rich and collaborative digital signature service, it is also the most secure — with no database of private keys to compromise and no documents are ever stored, even in hashed forms.
