Digital Signatures from GlobalSign

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. Digital signatures allow you to keep your entire workflow online.

As a member of Adobe’s Approved Trust List (AATL), GlobalSign’s document signing certificates are compatible with the leading programs and are an easy to use, cost-effective way to add digital signatures to your documents.

Digitally Sign Adobe PDF, Microsoft Word, LibreOffice, & more with one signing credential.

Deployment Options

GlobalSign document signing certificates scale to accommodate businesses of all sizes, from individuals to large enterprises, with two main deployment options based on business need and document workflow. The main differentiator is whether you are using automated document generation software and want to integrate digital signatures (e.g., Adobe LiveCycle, iText-based solutions), in which case you'd need a server-based solution.
