Time-tested, industry approved

There’s no “one size fits all” security solution, which is why we offer a range of digital signature options. Whether you want to utilize the cloud for speed and scalability or you need to factor in compliance, you can count on GlobalSign to deliver trustworthy solutions and best-in-class customer support every step of the way.

Many electronic signing regulations, including the Adobe Approved Trust List (AATL), require digital certificates be stored on FIPS-compliant hardware, such Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) or USB tokens. GlobalSign digital signatures are considered legally admissible and are compliant with many national and industry-specific regulations and standards

  • US ESIGN (Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce)
  • UN Model Electronic Signature Law
  • FDA CFR 21 Part 11
  • US UETA (Uniform Electronic Transactions Act)
  • eIDAS (advanced & qualified e-signatures, eSeals)
  • US State Professional Engineering (PE) Seals
  • CNCA

We’ve got over 25 years of experience helping customers achieve their security goals while maintaining compliance. If you have questions about regulations that apply to your business, get in touch with one of our PKI experts today.

Token-Based Deployments for Lower Volume Signature Needs

Stored on a portable, FIPS-compliant USB token, the ability to apply the signature stays in the sole possession of the signer – which makes this an excellent option for small-to-medium sized businesses looking satisfy regulations and accommodate traveling or remote employees.

On-Premise HSM Solutions for High-Volume Deployments
and Off-the-Shelf Integrations

Many organizations choose – or are required – to keep their security operations on-prem. In these scenarios, an HSM deployment is often the best solution, although internal PKI expertise is required to configure the integration between the HSM and document workflow.

The signing credential, issued by GlobalSign, is issued to organization or department-level identities (e.g., Accounting, Finance) and is stored and protected on a FIPS-compliant hardware security module (HSM).
