Secured Signing Certify – Electronic Notary
Certify and Add Approval Signatures, eNotary
Some documents need to be certified by a legal representative such as a solicitor or Notary Public.
A certified document needs to be signed in front of a witness who affirms the signature is your true one; and in the case of a copied document, warrants that the copy is true and identical to the original one. The certifier declares this to be true and adds their signature and the date.
Personalised X509 PKI Digital Signature technology offers Certify Signature as a function to Certify PDF documents. This signature locks the document and prevents adding additional content or signatures (unless it is intended and signature fields are added before certifying), the Certify Signature seals the document with a recognised professional seal, time stamp, and graphic signature image.
Using Secured Signing's Certify function to certify and add approval signatures to a document is the digital equivalent of a notarised wet signature; it assures recipients that the document is authentic, originates from a verified source, and has not been tampered with.
This gives you the utmost control of your electronic format of signed documents.
Who can benefit from using Certify?
- Notary Public
- Lawyers / Solicitors
- Engineers who need to seal drawings / plans
- Anybody who wishes to certify electronic documents
eNotary enables a Notary Public to notarise documents in electronic format. eNotary uses Secured Signing's Personalised X509 PKI Digital Signature technology with a digital notary seal that certifies and validates electronic documents with a digital certificate. The many benefits to having such an online notarisation process include cost savings, greater security, immediate detailed audit trails, and the document's data integrity — none of which are available in paper-based notarisations.
