What are cloud signatures?

Cloud-based digital signatures, or 'remote signatures,' are a new generation of digital signatures that work across desktop, mobile, and the web — and meet the highest levels of compliance and assurance for signer authentication. Each signer is issued a certificate-based digital ID by a Trust Service Provider (TSP). When signing a document, the ID is used with a personal PIN and other verification steps to prove the signer's identity. Read the solution brief.
