Features and Benefits

Secure Digital Signatures for Adobe PDF and Microsoft Office

Trusted worldwide, SSL.com’s Document Signing Certificates offer guarantees of authenticity, integrity, and legal non-repudiation for signed digital documents, including Adobe PDF and Microsoft Office.

Satisfies the U.S. Federal ESIGN act and laws of many other nations, making digitally signed documents legally binding worldwide.

Guarantees Authenticity and Integrity

A digital signature ensures legal non-repudiation, proof that the signer of an electronic document is who they claim to be, and demonstrates that the information in the document has not been altered since it was signed.

Legally-binding

A digitally-signed contract or other legal document is just as legally binding as a paper contract signed in ink. The Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (2000) indicates that a contract or signature “may not be denied legal effect, validity, or enforceability solely because it is in electronic form.”
