Cryptomathic and Connective to provide e-signature & e-sealing services
By Megha Bhattacharya
E-signature specialist Cryptomathic has announced a partnership with digital transaction management provider Connective today. The collaboration is expected to offer access to multi-jurisdictional advanced and qualified remote e-signature and e-sealing services.
Cryptomathic’s e-signature solution, Signer, will provide the remote qualified e-signing and e-sealing technology behind Connective’s multi-jurisdictional e-signature solution, allowing signatories across borders to remotely co-sign documents and transactions using up to the highest level of e-signature security and legal assurance according to their respective regulations, including eIDAS (Europe), ZertES (Switzerland) and also additional e-signature Laws from Singapore, US and others.
“Cryptomathic and Connective are providing a European solution to a global problem,” commented Guillaume Forget, Managing Director, Cryptomathic GmbH. “By combining our strengths, we are overcoming a major barrier to adoption for high-security e-signature services around the world. As global lockdowns continue to accelerate the adoption of digital business processes, every organisation operating across borders will, at some point, need to perform a high-security e-signature backed by the laws that govern its jurisdiction. Through this partnership, we have made these services quickly and easily available, regardless of where the signatories hail from.”
According to Cryptomathic, the partnership also includes Certification Authority and Qualified Trust Services Provider, BE-YS, which specialises in managed services in compliance with eIDAS, GDPR and PCI in a privately held data centre. The solution will be offered either as a trust service or as a managed service using multi-tenant, multi-policy models.
“This partnership extends the eIDAS regulation’s spirit of cross border interoperability to the rest of the world,” added Nicolas Metivier, CEO, Connective. “Never in the history of the world’s economy has it been more important for organisations to be able to establish digital trust. This seemingly simple goal has been frustrated by the differences between legal mandates and the fragmented nature of the digital ecosystem. By creating a hub that can provide multi-jurisdictional compliance at the highest security level, counterparties across borders can now utilise these technologies in corporate identity, contract signing, and other transactional use-cases safe in the knowledge that their e-signature comes with the legal assurance of their local governing body.”
