GMO GlobalSign, a global Certificate Authority (CA) and leading provider of identity and security solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT), announced it has joined the DocuSign Agreement Cloud partner ecosystem. The partnership broadens the DocuSign partner ecosystem, offering enterprises additional capabilities to digitally transform their business. This includes expanding their market reach, scalability, reducing risk and meeting regulatory requirements.
“Businesses use DocuSign for mission-critical front- and back-offices processes like account opening, policy binding, and money movement, among many other things,” said Ryan Cox, vice president, Global Partner Solutions, DocuSign. “Within these important transactions, a strong Signer identity assertion is paramount. By partnering with GlobalSign, we can expand our identity coverage for Signers in new markets around the world.”
Cloud-based services from both GlobalSign and DocuSign further enables business enterprises to leverage GlobalSign’s Digital Signing Service (DSS) integration to DocuSign Trust Service Provider ecosystem, resulting in a seamless, complete cloud-based service from that provides a true end-to-end signing experience that lowers barriers such as cost, hardware maintenance, and internal expertise. As a DocuSign Trust Service Provider (TSP), users can easily apply GlobalSign trusted signatures through the DocuSign Agreement Cloud—the suite of more than a dozen applications and over 350 integrations that digitally transform how companies prepare, sign, act on and manage the agreements that are fundamental to their business.
There is significant global momentum for digital signatures based on Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), due primarily to a plethora of e-Government digitization initiatives happening from Latin America to Europe to Japan, as well as in more traditional markets. The DSS-DocuSign solution is perfectly suited to allow enterprises to take advantage of these opportunities and meet regulatory requirements.
GlobalSign’s cloud-based Digital Signing Service is a fully managed remote signing solution that was first launched in June 2017. DSS allows business enterprises to benefit from long-lived, eIDAS compliant trusted digital signatures – signer identity validation, content integrity, trusted timestamps, non-repudiation – without the need to manage any physical hardware or build any custom integrations. In addition, customers are not required to have PKI or cryptographic expertise in-house, nor do they need to invest in and manage hardware.
