Remote electronic signature specialists Cryptomathic has revealed that its e-signature platform, Signer, will be used by Polish digital trust services provider, Eurocert

The collaboration will extend the firm’s capabilities in remote qualified electronic signature (QES) services.

Eurocert will subsequently be equipped to enable its public and private sector clients to securely access online applications and digitally sign legally binding documents at any time and from anywhere, reducing the complexity and cost commonly associated with securely managing sensitive digital material between independent parties and legal entities.

Guillaume Forget, Managing Director, Cryptomathic GmbH commented: “Eurocert’s clients need the highest probative value when communicating digitally with third parties, which is exactly what we provide with Signer. 

“To complete their digitalization journey, banks, insurance companies and other organisations require a remote signing capability that complies with national and international laws on identification and signatures for proof of explicit commitment. 

“Now, they can finally agree legal documents and contracts without the need to be physically present, or to rely on vulnerable paper-based alternatives. It’s a big step forward for the Polish and, indeed, the European digital economy.”

The remote QES service has been delivered in concert with Cryptomathic partner ESYSCO, which provided integration services together with a web application PDF signing portal and a cardless desktop application for signing locally with keys being kept remotely. In the next phase, a remote video identification solution for simplified and mobile customer onboarding will also be implemented.

Lukasz Konikiewicz, CEO, Eurocert added: “Cryptomathic has unique expertise in the digital signature field and we are proud to enhance our offering with a Qualified Electronic Signature service based on their Signer technology. 

“Their partnership with ESYSCO has delivered a seamless integration process and their support teams are outstanding, quickly providing expert advice to any challenges we faced during implementation. Eurocert can now serve our clients with a best in class remote signing service, which they can use to get an edge on the competition.”

The Eurocert implementation follows news in late November 2019 that Signer had been officially recognised as providing the highest possible level of security following its Common Criteria certification to the new eIDAS protection profile for remote Qualified Electronic Signatures.
