Digital signatures, also referred to as e-signatures are the digital alternative to handwritten signatures used on documents as proof of identity or validity. Today, digitally signed documents also have the same legal standing as handwritten signatures. They have been designed to help individuals and companies sign off on business documents from anywhere without requiring their physical presence. Digital signatures are generally validated by certificate authorities or trust service providers to verify their security and authenticity. Digital signature adoption is key element of the digital transformation journey of a company.
Digital Signature software facilitates the digital document signing process. Businesses need such software to securely sign, send, and manage documents.
